BackgroundEdit

Colonel Holloway was bred by Catesby Woodford of Runnymede Farm in Paris, Kentucky and raced by Frank J. Nolan's Beverwyck Stable. He was trained by Dave Woodford.

Racing careerEdit

For his Preakness win, Colonel Holloway was ridden by jockey Clarence Turner. Colonel Holloway was not among the original entries for the race, but was added to the field after winning the Maryland Club purse earlier in the day. He started at odds of 8/5 and won from Bwana Tumbo and Tipsand. The race was run as a handicap, with Colonel Holloway carrying 107 pounds, thirteen pounds less than the runner-up.[3] Records show the colt ran second to Sotemia in the four mile Kentucky Endurance Stakes in October of the same year.[4]

As of 1915, Colonel Holloway was still racing in the United States and in Canada.[5] His owner was listed as D.J. Scanlon.[6]

After racingEdit

No records have been found of any progeny of Colonel Holloway or of his death.
