Man o’ War was retired by his owner Samuel D. Riddle after his perfect Horse of the Year three-year-old campaign. In 1921 Man o’ War started his stud duties at Hinata Farm outside of Lexington, which was managed by Elizabeth Daingerfield. The next year he was moved to Riddle’s new farm, Faraway Farm. Here Man o’ War became a Kentucky tourist attraction. Today his monumental statue greets visitors to the Kentucky Horse Park.
