Bred and raced by Solomon Joel, Pommern was by Polymelus, a five-time Leading sire in Great Britain & Ireland and a horse that Thoroughbred Heritage calls one the most influential British stallions of the 20th century. ]] His dam, Merry Agnes, was by St. Hilaire whose sire was St. Simon, one of the most successful sires in the history of British racing. Pommern was inbred twice in the third generation, having Hampton (3x3) as a great-grand-sire. Pommern was noted as being a good looking horse.
Trained by Charles Peck, Pommern raced as a two-year-old, winning the 1914 Imperial Produce Stakes and Richmond Stakes. As a three-year-old he won the Limekiln Stakes and was third in the Craven Stakes. He suffered defeat in his preliminary run up to the Guineas, when he conceded 15 lbs to Rossendale.Ridden by jockey Steve Donoghue, the colt won the 1915 2,000 Guineas Stakes, the Derby, and the September St. Leger Stakes to make him the eleventh horse to win the English Triple Crown. Scheduled to be retired to stud, in January of 1916 owner Solly Joel announced the horse would return to the track. A winner that year of the Coronation Cup, the New York Times reported on 3 September 1916 that Joel had turned down a foreign buyer's offer of a record US$250,000 for Pommern.
After winning seven of his nine starts Pommern retired to stud at his owner's Maiden Erlegh Stud in Earley, Berkshire.
Although he met with limited success, Pommern notably sired Adam's Apple (2,000 Guineas Stakes, £11,750), Glommen (Goodwood Cup, £8,767), Pondoland (£10,345) and was the damsire of the 1934 1,000 Guineas Stakes winner, Campanula. 
Pommern died on 26 June 1935 at age twenty-three.
