Hard Tack (1926-1947) was an American
Thoroughbredracehorse owned and bred by the Wheatley Stableof Gladys Mills Phippsand her brother Ogden L. Mills. Son of the great Man o' War, he showed considerable promise as a racer, but his temper prevented him from achieving success on the track. As an example, on one occasion when the starting gate opened and the horses rushed out, Hard Tack stood perfectly still, refusing to budge.
Retired to stand at stud at
Claiborne Farmnear Paris, Kentucky, Hard Tack went on to sire the great racer Seabiscuit.
