Paddy O'Prado broke his maiden at Gulfstream Park on March 6, 2010, in the Grade 3 $150,000 Palm Beach Stakes. He went on to finish second in the Blue Grass Stakes behind winner Stately Victor, finishing in front of First Dude, Interactif, Make Music For Me and Odysseus. Following his runner up performance in the Blue Grass, he raced in The Kentucky Derby and finished third. In The Preakness, he was sixth.

At this point, his trainer, Dale Romans, moved him back to the turf. Paddy O'Prado then captured the Grade 2 $500,000 Colonial Turf Cup, the Grade 2 $600,000 Virginia Derby, and the Grade 1 $400,000 Secretariat Stakes.

In his 2011 four-year-old debut, on Preakness Day at Pimlico, Paddy O'Prado came from the back of the pack to take the Dixie Stakes from Baryshnikov.

Paddy O'Prado fractured one of his right rear sesamoid bones during the Dixie Stakes. He was permanently retired from racing on May 22, 2011.
