"The descendant of Man o' War and War Admiral, Affirmed won all three stages of the Triple Crown in 1978 by a combined margin of less than two lengths over rival Alydar. Lou Sahadi draws on interviews with Steve Cauthen, the family of owner Louis Wolfson, and many more to tell the story of this courageous horse, whose unrivaled combination of speed and heart twice earned it Horse of the Year honors and placed him #12 on the Blood-Horse list of Top 100 Horses of the 20th Century. In the tradition of successful horse racing titles such as Man O' War, The Horse God Built and Wild Ride, Affirmed recreates an unforgettable era in American racing history"-- Provided by publisher.
