Peter Volo was by Peter The Great out of Nervolo Belle, foaled in 1911 on the G. L. Knight Farm, Nicholasville, Kentucky. Patchen Wilkes Farm took him as a weanling and owned him throughout his racing career. Peter Volo was a champion at the ages of one, two, three and four years, winning every race he started except his match race in 1915 with Lee Axworthy, after which he was retired. Upon the failure of the Patchen Wilkes Farm, Peter Volo was purchased privately by Walnut Hall Farm and proved himself with good offspring such as Volomite, who became a leading sire. Peter Volo died in 1936 at Walnut Hall Farm, Lexington, Kentucky.
