Lochsong was a bay mare bred by her owner, Jeff Smith's Littleton stud.
As a two and three-year-old in racing, Lochsong accomplished little until Ian Balding took over as her trainer. In 1992 the filly won the rare Sprint-Handicap triple of Stewards' Cup, Portland Handicap and Ayr Gold Cup. The filly won numerous other top races including the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes as well as twice capturing the Group 1 Prix de l'Abbaye at Longchamp in Paris, France.
