Coltiletti began his professional riding career in 1919 when he was just fifteen years old. Almost immediately he became one of the top jockeys in the country, competing two years after he began racing in his first American Classic Races. Of his eight mounts in the Kentucky Derby, his best finishes were a second aboard Sweep All to winner Twenty Grand in the 1931 running and third place finishes in the 1926 and 1929 editions.
Coltiletti made seven appearances in the Preakness Stakes. After his fourth place finish in his 1921 Derby debut, the seventeen-year-old won the Preakness aboard Broomspun. In addition to his 1921 win, his next best result was a third with Rialto in 1923 on whom he also finished third in the Belmont Stakes.
Frank Coltiletti was living in Jamaica, Queens when he died in 1987 just a month shy of his 83rd birthday.
