Bred in the United States, a granddaughter of the great Round Table, she was owned by Daniel Wildenstein (1917-2001), the renowned French art dealer and highly successful horseman. All Along was shipped to France to be trained by Patrick-Louis Biancone. As a two-year-old, the filly raced only one time and won. The following year would see her racing on turf courses in France, England, and in Japan, winning numerous prestigious races. However, it was as a four year old that All Along became a world champion and the first ever thoroughbred based in a foreign land to win the United States Eclipse Award as 1983's Horse of the Year.

Ridden by jockey, Walter Swinburn, All along began 1983 by winning France's most famous race, the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. She was immediately shipped to Toronto, Canada and won the Rothmans International at Woodbine Racetrack. Two weeks later she won Turf Classic at Aqueduct Racetrack in Jamaica, New York by 8 3/4 lengths, then won the Washington, D.C., International at Laurel, Maryland. Four consecutive wins against the best horses in the world, all occurred within the remarkably short time of just 41 days. She was the first horse to win the three prestigious North American races in a row, netting a million-dollar bonus for her owners and ultimately Horse of the Year honors in both France and the United States.

In 1984, she competed in only four races before retiring as a broodmare to the Three Chimneys Farm in Midway, Kentucky, the same farm where United States Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew stood at stud and where the popular Smarty Jones now stands.

All Along was inducted in the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 1990. In the Blood-Horse magazine ranking of the top 100 U.S. thoroughbred champions of the 20th Century, All Along was ranked #68.
