Biography: 

Son of Peter The Great and Jenny Scott and foaled in 1909, Peter Scott was sire of three 2:00 performers from the mare Roya McKinney, those being Rose Scott, Scotland and Highland Scott. Peter Scott was the first to win over $50,000 in stakes and purses in a single season. Sold for $30,000 in 1915 to 1994 Immortal Henry W. Oliver, Peter Scott swept the Grand Circuit Stakes that season for trainer/driver Tom Murphy, losing but one out of eighteen starts. First placed at stud at the Walnut Hall Farm, he eventually stood at the Poplar Hill Farm, which Oliver had purchased. Peter Scott died in 1939 standing at Elmcrest Farm in Lebanon, Ohio.
