    History of Racing Career
     
    Racing at age two in France for his British breeder/owner, Jefferson Davis Cohn, Sir Gallahad earned victory in three of his five starts but was overshadowed by the 1922 Champion colt Epinard. At age three, he won four races, most notably the French 2000 Guineas (Poule d'Essai des Poulains). At four, he won three important races in France and in England won the Lincolnshire Handicap. That year, he also went head-to-head with Epinard, winning a 6½ furlong event.
     
    Leading Sire
     
    Sir Gallahad was retired after his four-year-old season to stand at stud at Haras du Bois-Roussel in Alencon. In 1926, owner Jefferson Davis Cohn sold him to an American syndicate made up of Robert A Fairbairn, William Woodward, Sr Marshall Fiels lll and Arthur B Hancock. In the United States, he was recorded as Sir Gallahad III for registration clarification. Although he was sent to the various breeding farms of his four owners, he stood primarily at Woodward's Belair Stud in Maryland and at Hancock's Clairborne Farm in Kentucky.
     
    Sir Gallahad sired 65 Graded stakes race winners and was the United States Champion Sire four times.
