About this Item

1976 cross-country endurance horse race undertaken to break the world record for longest such race (previously held by a 1,200-mile 1928 Portuguese contest) was won by Virg O. Norton on his remaining sound mule, a 7-year-old jack named Lord Fauntleroy ("Leroy.") Norton has inscribed, dated (Sept. 14, 1994) and double signed to the first blank page in red ball-point. Previous owner has hand-written the names of many contestants at their candid photos throughout, probably since most of these photos lack captions. We do NOT believe these hand-written names are autographs of the various participants, as they all appear to be in the same hand. Reduced from $800. Bookseller Inventory # 003032

About this title


In 1976, riders from all over the world participated in the Great American Horse Race. Covering 3,000 miles, the race was from Frankfort, NY, to Sacramento, CA and was anticipated to last over 100 days. Each rider had two mounts, vet checks were done 4 times a day, and Icelandic horses had an amazing showing in the intense long distance race.
