Foaled in 1925, Evensong was by Nelson Dillon out of Taffolet and was bred by James P. Berry of Hartford, Connecticut. She was trained and raced by Will Crozier, but her bad manners made her a poor racehorse, although she took a record at Lexington as a two-year-old. At three Evensong was consigned to the Old Glory Sale and was purchased by Dr. Edwards of Walnut Hall Farm for a mere $300. Soon her fame grew as a broodmare, and her offspring included Peter Song, Twilight Song, Promoter, Leading Man, Volo Song and Victory Song - all champions. Evensong produced 13 foals and died in 1950.
