Sire Line


Belgrade Turk

 

Antelope b c 1748 (Young Belgrade - Mare, by Scarborough Colt). Sire Line Belgrade Turk. Family 18.

Antelope was bred by Sir Marmaduke Wyvill (1692-1754), 6th Baronet, at his Constable Burton stud, near Bedale, Yorkshire, and raced for four years. He was sold to the Marquess of Hartington at the end of the 1753 season, and then to the Earl of Antrim in 1754.

He was then retired to Lord Antrim's stud in Ireland where he was said to be a great favourite. His best son was probably Mr Pengree's Spanker. Although Antelope himself left no stock that bred on, his sisters made worthy contributions to Family 18.
