Retired champion horses of several breeds make their home at the Hall of Champions where fans can see them in person enjoying some well-deserved rest and relaxation under the supervision of Cathy Roby and her staff.
Man O'War is buried just inside the entrance to the park grounds alongside the Triple Crown winner War Admiral, who was his most famous son, and several of his other sons and daughters. The bronze statue was sculpted by Herbert Haseltine and originally stood over his grave on the grounds of Faraway Farm, where he died in 1948. Both his grave and the statue were moved to the Kentucky Horse Park in 1977. Man O'War, who won 20 of 21 races lifetime, is considered by many to be the greatest thoroughbred of the 20th century. There is also a plaque near the statue which you can read here.
