On Saturday 1st November 1947, Man o’ War, the greatest of all racehorses, breathed his last. He was believed to be the first horse embalmed for a funeral. He required 23 bottles of embalming fluid. Each bottle of concentrated fluid, when diluted, equaled about a gallon; human bodies need only two.
