Baulking Green was a chestnut gelding by Coup de Myth out of Nicotine Nelly by Irish Trout. He was foaled in 1952 and throughout his racing career he was owned by Jim Reade. He was usually ridden by George Small and after the 1962 season he was trained by Tim Forster. He raced in point-to-points and hunter chases, to be eligible for these races the horse was qualified with the Old Berkshire Hunt.

Geoffrey Sale (from whose annual publication Hunter Chasers & Point-to-Pointer the above is taken) wrote in the 1968 annual that Baulking Green was “just about the most gallant animal that ever looked through a bridle”. Sale wrote of Baulking Green’s last race: “Broke down behind What A Myth at Newbury (on three legs from two out but would not be pulled up). The most courageous of horses. Will long be remembered”. Ron Liddiard wrote the horse' biography soon after the horse finished racing - Baulking Green: champion hunter chaser (1971).
