Dudley Allen was born a slave in Lexington, Kentucky. He was an accomplished horseman as an owner and trainer of thoroughbreds. Mr. Allen was co-owner (along with Jacobin Stables) of Kingman, a stallion who was ridden by Isaac Murphy, that won the Kentucky Derby in 1891.

Reverend George Downing united Dudley Allen and Margaret Crittenden in marriage and together they lived at 416 Kinkead Street in Lexington, Kentucky.
