Hermis was a chestnut horse bred by Hiram Berry: H. A. Engman owned his dam, Katy of the West. He was purchased as a two-year-old by Cincinnati theatre man Henry M. Ziegler and would be sold to L. V. Bell who in turn sold him in 1903 to banker, Edward R. Thomas.
At his final race during the 1904 World's Fair Handicap in St. Louis, Hermis received an injury to his leg due to being kicked by 1903 Kentucky Derby winner Judge Himes during the start. As a result of the injury, Hermis never raced again.
Retired to stud duty, on January 3, 1912 the New York Times reported that Hermis had been sold to Edmond Blanc, a prominent French breeder and owner of Haras de Jardy at Marnes-la-Coquette in what is today the western suburbs of Paris.
