Born at Walnut Hall Farm in Kentucky in 1926, Volomite was by Peter Volo-Cita Frisco. As a yearling he was sold at auction for $5,800 to Thomas D. Taggert of Laurel Hall Farm. Volomite's racing career with Walter Cox was short. After taking a record of 2:03 1/4 at the age of three, he was sold again to Dr. Ogden Edwards and returned to Walnut Hall. Volomite's greatest fame was as a sire of extreme speed at either gait. He sired 28 2:00 horses, 198 in 2:05, and 586 Standard performers. His last three years were in retirement. Volomite died on January 6, 1954 and is buried at Walnut Hall Farm, Lexington, Kentucky.
