Hands for Horses

Record #:
Contributing to the history of horse racing and many race horses’ lineages is a champion whose resting place is debated as Goochland County, Virginia, or Northampton County, North Carolina. During his lifetime, Sir Archie, measured at sixteen hands, was such a champion that competitors eventually refused to race their horses with him. His superior racing abilities were passed down in equestrian champions like Lexington, Man O’War, and Seabiscuit.
