Colonial Affair (foaled 1990 in Middleburg, Virginia, at Rutledge Farm, by Mr. and Mrs. Hermen Greenberg) is an American thoroughbred stallion racehorse.

He was sired by 1981 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner Pleasant Colony, out of the Rutledge Farm mare, Snuggle.

Purchased for $100,000 at the 1991 Fasig-Tipton Saratoga select yearling sale, Colonial Affair was raced by Centennial Farms.

1993 Belmont Triumph

Trained by the 1992 U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee, Scotty Schulhofer, he is best known for his win in the 1993 Belmont Stakes under female jockey, Julie Krone, as the 13-1 longshot. Colonial Affair's 1993 Belmont triumph is also in the record books, because it was the first time that a female jockey won any of the three races of Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing.

1994 Eclipse Award - Near Miss

Colonial Affair was only 3 votes shy (out of a possible 247 votes) of winning the 1994 Eclipse Award for American Male Champion Older Horse.

Retirement

Colonial Affair was the favorite for the 1994 $3 million Breeders' Cup Classic, until he broke a bone in his leg, thereby ending his racing career.

Colonial Affair was originally retired in 1995 to Gainesway Farm. He was then supposed to be sent to New Zealand in 1998 but was instead sent to Japan and currently stands privately at stud at Haras El Paraiso in Argentina.
