The original Sire Lines, published in 1977 by The Blood-Horse and long out of print, holds a revered place in the annals of Turf history as the preeminent work on American Thoroughbred pedigrees. Now from Eclipse Press’ new imprint, The Blood-Horse Classics Library, comes an updated edition of this important volume, written by the late Abram S. Hewitt.

An Oxford graduate and a lawyer by trade, Hewitt held a deep fascination for equine pedigrees and genetics and wrote prolifically on the subjects for The Blood-Horse, including a series of articles examining the most influential early to mid-20th-century American stallions. These articles became Sire Lines. Eclipse Press is proud once again to offer this classic work to Thoroughbred racing enthusiasts everywhere.
