Polly Peachum was a big favourite with everyone in the yard. She had been a cheap buy at just 480 gns and was owned by Mrs Anne Henson. Polly was a kind, sweet lovely filly, very speedy but was often overshadowed by Lochnager in his final season. In 1975 she was placed in the Nunthorpe stakes at York, and in 1976 she won the Palace House Stakes. Later in 1976 she took the best on in the Prix de Saint Georges at Longchamp and was only beaten the shortest of heads. Later the same month at Chantilly she was placed in the Prix du Gros Chene. In July 1976 she was placed in the King George stakes and then finished third to Lochnager in the Nunthorpe Stakes at York in August.
As a sad footnote, Polly also brings back one tragic memory. Jimmy Buchanan whom rode a winner on her was tragically killed in a accident on the gallops. Mrs Henson had given Jimmy, whom had not been married long, a watch which he was very proud of.
