“Last summer I submitted manuscript to both The Blood Horse (never obtained an answer from them) and to the Thoroughbred Times (they declined). Despite this, I am determined to have this part of Man o’ War’s story to be divulged to the racing and breeding public. In fact, I plan to also submit it to the Thoroughbred Heritage website during the next website update.”
Ms. Rivera has some compelling evidence, and I’m sure she’d be willing to list her sources to the Jockey Club to have the records corrected. Ms. Rivera’s manuscript is fascinating and appears to fill in the blanks. It’s fairly obvious in reading the story that Ms. Rivera did painstaking research to piece together the stories of these horses after they left the US mainland, and I’ve decided to link to the entire manuscript as Ms. Rivera presented it to me, unedited.
