Man o' War died quietly on November 1, 1947 at the age of 30 (his age in this photo). Man o'War was eventually moved to the Kentucky Horse Park, where the original burial site was recreated. More than 50 years after his death, he still attracts thousands of visitors anually. And in the words of Will Harbut, Red's groom, he is still the "mostest hoss."
