Trained by Henry Cecil, he was sent to the track at age two in 1999. He won his only start that year then won the Newmarket Stakes in his first start in 2000. Making just his third career start, Beat Hollow finished third to Sinndar and Sakhee in the 1½ mile Epsom Derby. He then won the Grand Prix de Paris at Longchamp Racecourse in Paris, France, a race which at that time was run at distance of 2,000 metres (1¼ miles).
Beat Hollow suffered from illness problems that kept him out of racing in 2001 but late in the year he was shipped to trainer Bobby Frankel in the United States. Back on the track as a five-year-old in 2002, Beat Hollow made eight starts on American turf. He won four races, three of which were Grade I events, plus had two second-place finishes and a third.
Retired to stud, Beat Hollow currently stands at Juddmonte's Banstead Manor Stud, near the village of Cheveley in Suffolk County.
