The first of two good American race mares to bear the name, Maud Muller was a fine racer for Harry Payne Whitney but proved an even better broodmare for his son, C. V. “Sonny” Whitney. While her female line has continued with some success, for the most part it has not maintained the standard that Maud Muller herself set.

Maud Muller was bred and owned by Harry Payne Whitney. She was trained by Fred Hopkins. Following Whitney's death in 1930, she passed to the ownership of his son, C. V. “Sonny” Whitney.
Maud Muller is inbred 4x4 to 1893 American Horse of the Year Domino. She was produced from Truly Rural, whose full sister Shady produced multiple stakes winner Star Shadow (by Man o' War), 1925 Matron Stakes winner Taps (by Man o' War) and stakes winner Arson (by Big Blaze) and is the second dam of 1947 Coaching Club American Oaks winner Harmonica. Truly Rural is also a half sister to juvenile stakes winner Woodlands (by Whisk Broom II).
Truly Rural is out of Sylvan (by Disguise), a full sister to the good stakes winner Melisande. Sylvan is also a half sister to Elf (by Galliard), dam of three-time American champion sire Broomstick (by Ben Brush) and of the minor stakes winners Broomhandle (by Onondaga) and Elfall (by Pirate of Penzance), and to Flying Squadron (by Saraband), dam of the juvenile stakes winner Clarion (by Kingston).
Sylvan and her sisters were produced from Sylvabelle, an imported daughter of Bend Or and St. Editha (by Kingly Vale) and a half sister to 1884 dead-heat Derby Stakes winner St. Gatien (by Rotherhill or The Rover). Sylvabelle is also a half sister to Emmeline Marcia (by Queen's Messenger), dam of 1893 AScot Gold Cup winner Marcion (by Royal Hampton).
- Maud Muller was named for the title character of a poem by John Greenleaf Whittier.
- Although Maud Muller is considered the co-champion American filly of 1924 with another Whitney filly, Mother Goose, Maud Muller defeated her stablemate in two of the three races they contested together and was conceding 10 pounds to Mother Goose when second to her in the Fashion Stakes.
