Halma (1892-1909) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred in Kentucky by Eastin & Larabie, he was a son of Hanover, a three-time Leading sire in North America and a U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee. Grandsire Hindoo, was a Champion runner who also was inducted in the U.S. Racing Hall of Fame. Halma was out of the mare Julia L., a daughter of Champion and Hall of Famer, Longfellow. He was purchased as a yearling by African-American Byron McClelland, an astute horseman who trained his own racing stable.

Halma got his first win under jockey Alonzo Clayton on August 26, 1894 at New York's Sheepshead Bay Race Track. At age three, Halma won the Phoenix Hotel Stakes on May 3, 1895 then three days later won the last Kentucky Derby to be held at the race's original 1-1/2 mile distance. On May 14th he won the Clark Handicap shortly after which McClelland sold him to wealthy businessman Charles Fleischmann for a reported $30,000. Two days after Fleischmann purchased Halma, the colt won the May 21, 1895 Latonia Derby. [1] An injury kept him out of racing in the summer and fall of 1895, and in 1896 he went lame and was retired to stud.

As a sire

Halma stood at stud in the United States where he notably sired Alan-a-Dale (b. 1899), winner of the 1902 Kentucky Derby. In June of 1901 Charles Fleischmann sold him to American sportsman, William Kissam Vanderbilt who shipped him to his Haras du Quesnay stud farm in France. [2]

In France, Halma's best runner was Oversight (b. 1906), a top colt at age competing at two to four whose wins included the Prix de la Salamandre, Prix du President de la Republique, and Prix Lupin.

Halma died in 1909 at age seventeen.
