A Scotland-Alma Lee filly, Rosalind was foaled in 1933, having been bred by the great colt trainer/driver Ben White and given by him to his son Gibson. She was a top performer as a two-year-old and at age three won all the major stakes, including the Hambletonian. When Rosalind was four, she beat Todd's record by trotting in 1:56 3/4 and, before retiring, was teamed with Greyhound to set a team-to-pole world record of 1:58 1/4. She produced only six offspring, among them Deanna, 2:02 3/4, before her death at Hanover Shoe Farms in 1950. Later, Rosalind became the subject of a book titled Born to Trot by Marguerite Henry.
