Highland Scott was a brown horse by Peter Scott-Roya McKinney. Owned by Henry Oliver of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he was foaled in 1923. As a three-year-old, Highland Scott was driven by T. W. Murphy to a world record time of 1:59 1/2. A year later, he was purchased by E. R. Harriman and in 1929 was driven to his record mile of 1:59 1/4 at Goshen. Highland Scott was retired to stud and died in 1944.
