Biography: 

By Volomite-Evensong, Volo Song was foaled in 1940 at Walnut Hall Farm, and was later purchased from the Walnut Hall Sale for $5,000 by William Strang, who put him in training with Ben White. Volo Song proved to be a two-year-old champion by trotting in 2:03 1/2 and winning all stake engagements. As a three-year-old he won The Matron, The American National, The Hambletonian and The Review Futurity Stakes. The next season he was sold to E. J. Baker and, with Harry Fitzpatrick driving, went in 1:57 3/4 at North Randall. A week later, on July 18, 1944, Volo Song suffered a broken leg at Elk Horn, Wisconsin and had to be destroyed.
