Walter Childs Rollins (1857 – January 18, 1908) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse trainer about whom the New York Times said "was for thirty years one of the most successful trainers of thoroughbred racers in America."Born in Lexington, Kentucky, Walter Rollins first worked in the racing industry as a stable hand for Hal Price McGrath, owner of McGrathiana Stud. He was a jockey for a time but met with limited success. As a trainer, Rollins spent the majority of his career at racetracks in the New York/New Jersey area, making his home in The Bronx, New York. His first major success came with the colt General Monroe with whom he won the 1883 and 1884 editions of the Saratoga Cup and the inaugural running of the Suburban Handicap in 1884.
