“In about 70 years, you can place my body here”
Eddie Arcaro, the reinterment of Isaac Murphy, Faraway Farm, Lexington, 1967
“One more mighty plunge, and with knee, limb and hand,
I lift my horse first by a nose past the stand.
We are under the string now – the great race is done
And Salvator, Salvator, Salvator won!”
Ella Wheeler Wilcox, ‘How Salvator Won’
Isaac Murphy: 1861 – 1896
