Foaled in 1869, this son of Volunteer-Flora spent the early part of his life pulling a milk wagon in Orange County, New Tork. St. Julien was sold for $600 to James Galway of New York City, who named the gelding St. Julien after seeing the name on a bottle of wine. St. Julien made his first start at age seven in 1876, winning all six races and taking a record of 2:22 1/2. Three years later, in the hands of Orrin Hickok, St. Julien became the world's champion, trotting the mile at Oakland, California in 2:12 3/4 and lowering his record a year later, at Hartford, Connecticut, to 2:11 1/4. He died in 1894 at age 25.
