Trafalgar was foaled in 1905 and was by Wallace out of the mare Grand Canary (by Splendor). He was owned by Messrs P & W Mitchell of Bringenbong, near Corryong. From 59 starts he had 24 wins, 11 seconds and 6 thirds. His best known win was the Sydney Cup which he won in 1910.  He was sold by the Mitchell's in 1916 and was retired after having won 24 events worth ₤22,111 in prize money.

After his retirement, Trafalgar spent his remaining days at Towong Hill on the Upper Murray. He was destroyed in 1929 after breaking a leg.
