The Col. E.R. Bradley is named for Edward R. Bradley, the founder of Idle Hour Stock Farm. Bradley and Idle Hour established first class breeding in his area through his stallion Black Toney and one of America's preeminent “blue hen” mares, La Troienne.

This race was one of the many not run in 2006 due to Hurricane Katrina.
