Saddle up for the adventurous ride of Battleship, the first American racehorse to win England's Grand National steeplecase in 1938, brought to the UK by Marion duPont Scott from the stables at Montpelier. Overcoming small stature and a young jockey, Battleship tamed the course known as "Suicide Lane," and validated duPont Scott independent pursuit of her true passion. Visitor Center. Free admission.
