Sired by Scotland out of May Spencer, Spencer Scott was foaled in 1937 at Castleton Farm in Kentucky. As a yearling he was purchased by Charles W. Phellis and developed and raced by Fred Egan. At two Spencer Scott had a record of 2:05 and the next year dominated the stakes, including his win in the Hambletonian. In 1941, as a four-year-old, he set the world champion trotting stallion mark of 1:57 1/4 at Lexington. He was retired to Castleton and then leased to Hanover Shoe Farms, which later purchased him for $50,000. There he sired the champions Rodney, Egan Hanover and many others. Spencer Scott died at Hanover Shoe Farms on January 22, 1950.
