Owned and bred by Marcus Daly, one of the wealthy Montana Copper Kings, Scottish Chieftain was trained by Matt Byrnes. When he won the 1897 Belmont Stakes he was ridden by 1896 National Champion jockey Joseph Scherrer.[3] While information of his racing career is limited, it is reported that he also won the Spring Handicap and had a second-place finish in the Tidal Stakes at Sheepshead Bay Race Track.
