Bubbling Over (1923-1938) was an American thoroughbred stallion racehorse. Bred in Kentucky, he was sired by English stakes winner North Star out of the mare, Beaming Beauty, who in turn was sired by the great Belmont Stakes champion, Sweep.

Owned by Colonel Bradley of Idle Hour Stock Farm, Bubbling Over was never out of the money in 13 starts. He is best known for his win in the 1926 Kentucky Derby, winning the race by 5 lengths in a time of 2:03 4/5. [1]


Upon retirement, Bubbling Over was very successful not only as a sire but also as a broodmare sire. Among his progeny were Kentucky Derby winner, Burgoo King, Baby League, dam of Striking, 1961 Broodmare of the Year, Hildene, dam of Preakness Stakes winner, Hill Prince, and stakes winner Biologist.

Bubbling Over died in 1938 and is buried at Darby Dan Farm in Lexington, Kentucky. [2]
