Owned and trained by Ron Potts, the 2-year-old gelding was bred in Indiana by The Elkstone Group and was produced from the stakes-placed Northern Spur mare Titia.
A 7-year-old son of Unbridled's Song, Old Fashioned was undefeated during his juvenile campaign, which included a 15 1/2-length allowance score, followed by a 7 1/4-length romp in the Remsen Stakes (gr. II).
Old Fashioned won the Southwest Stakes (gr. II) in his 3-year-old debut and posted a respectable runner-up effort in the Arkansas Derby (gr. II). He retired from racing with earnings of $583,280.
Old Fashioned is out of the grade III-winning Meadowlake mare Collect Call. He stood the 2013 season for $8,000 at the Taylor family's Taylor Made Stallions near Nicholasville, Ky. as property of Rick Porter's Fox Hill Farm.
