In 1937, he agreed to run War Admiral,... more...

  • John Henryby Steve Haskin

    Eclipse Press 2007; US$ 9.99

    Only by dint of their determination and will does the story of John Henry, the horse, compare with that of the legendary "steel-drivin man" because stature-wise, there was no comparison. The equine John Henry was small, plain, bad-tempered, and had bad knees. He was the horse no one wanted, passing from owner to owner until Sam Rubin, a man... more...
