Round Table was an everyman's horse. In an era when larger-than-life racehorses such as Native Dancer, Swaps, and Nashua became national heroes, Round Table quietly and steadily racked up victories.
In Round Table: Thoroughbred Legends #16, longtime editor and writer John McEvoy tells the inspirational story of the horse who gave his all every time. In a career spanning four years, from 1956 to 1959, Round Table raced an amazing sixty-six times, winning forty-three races. He did everything asked of him: he traveled coast to coast, carried weight, stayed, sprinted. He was a Horse of the Year, a handicap champion, and a turf champion.

Like a little machine, Round Table would not quit.

Although a small, unassuming brown horse, Round Table was regally bred by Kentucky's famed Claiborne Farm. With the death of Claiborne founder A.B. Hancock Sr., Round Table was sold to help pay estate taxes, in essence saving the farm.

Under his new owner, Travis M. Kerr, and trainer William Molter, Round Table came into his own, winning races left and right, on dirt or on turf. He is acknowledged as one of the greatest turf runners in the history of the sport.
