Why I’m Working on This Book in One Quote…

“Sir Barton, chestnut colt by Star Shoot – Lady Sterling, was the outstanding three-year-old of 1919 and even such good horses as Eternal, Dunboyne, and Sweep On were overshadowed in performance by the Ross crack. His name on the roll of Preakness winners is a credit to the stake even though his performances were doomed to fade in brilliance before the coming of a mightier champion in 1920.”
