Olden Times (1958-1985) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse who won top races on both dirt and grass at racetracks across the United States from 1960 through 1964 at distances from five eighths of a mile [1] to a mile and three quarters.[2] He was sired by Relic, an American multiple stakes race winner who became the leading broodmare sire in France in 1965. Olden Times' dam was Djenne, a daughter of the 1942 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner and five-time Leading sire in France, Djebel.[3]

Olden Times was bred and raced by Rex C. Ellsworth, who also bred and raced U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee, Swaps.[4] He was conditioned for racing by Hall of Fame trainer Mesh Tenney from a base in California.[5] Ridden by Hank Moreno, Olden Times capped off his career with a 1964 win over Belmont Stakes winner Quadrangle in the prestigious Metropolitan Handicap at Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, New York.[6]

As a sire

Retired to stud duty for the 1985 breeding season, Olden Times was a successful sire. The best of his progeny was Roving Boy,voted the 1982 Eclipse Award as the American Champion Two-Year-Old Colt. A winner of five of his seven starts, Roving Boy's 1982 earnings of $800,425 were at the time the highest ever for his age group.[7] Among his other successful offspring were multiple stakes winners Full Pocket (f. 1969), Blue Times (f. 1971), Dainty Dotsie (f. 1974), Dr. Riddick (f. 1974), and Vittorioso (f. 1979).[8]
