Buccaneer b c 1857 (Wild Dayrell - Mare, by Little Red Rover). Sire Line Highflyer. Family 14-d.

Bred by Guy Carleton (1811-1875), 3rd Baron Dorchester (Dorchester-on-Thames), and later owned by Isaac Newton Wallop (1825-1891), 5th Earl of Portsmouth, his turf career could probably have been better but for a bothersome splint. He was said to be "an eyecatching individual with faultless conformation" and thought to be the best of Wild Dayrell's sons.

From his nineteen starts over four years he won eleven races, including the July Stakes and the Royal Hunt Cup.

He entered the Portsmouth stud at Hurstbourne Park, Whitchurch, Hampshire, in 1863 and was advertised to stand the following two years at James Cookson's Neasham Hall Stud in Durham, near Darlington in Yorkshire. He was sold to the Hungarian State Stud Kisber in 1865.

Beginning with his daughter Formosa's string of victories in England, his offspring were amazingly successful on the turf, and a bid was made to buy him back. However, his stock was proving equally valuable in eastern Europe and he was not for sale.

He sired fourteen Derby winners: one in England, three in Germany, nine in Austria, and one in Poland. Between them his progeny won thirty-seven classic races, and he became a Champion Sire and Broodmare Sire.

Fels (GER)
b c 1903 (Hannibal - Festa, by St Simon). Sire Line Highflyer. Family 16-c. His dam, Festa, a sister to Desmond (bbl c 1896 St Simon), was exported to Germany and there produced five excellent runners, of whom Fels was arguably the best. Bred in the Gestut Waldfried he was the top German racehorse for three years with wins in the Deutsches Derby, Grosser Hansa-Preis, Preis von Nordhein-Westfalen, Henckel-Rennen, Preis des Winterfavoriten and Ratibor-Rennen. His three year old earnings of over 40,000 marks was a record for the time. Owned by Messrs von Weinberg he covered at Gestuts-Verwaltung near Frankfurt am Main. In the stud he sired many top class horses, including the stallion Laland (b c 1917), who in turn sired Nereide (b f 1933), one of the Germany's greatest racehorses.

b c 1873 (Buccaneer - Mineral, by Rataplan). Sire Line Highflyer. Family 4-d. Bred in the state stud and owned by Aristides and Alexander Baltazzie, he ran in Derby under the name of the "Mineral Colt" and received his name upon winning the race to honour of the town of his birth. Sent to England to be trained, he started four times as a two year old, winning the Dewhurst Plate from Springfield (b c 1873 St Albans). During the following winter in his preparation for the Derby his legs were slightly suspect however he stood the training well and appeared to be the favourite until Petrarch won the Two Thousand Guineas at which point the public switched its allegiance. Nevertheless he won the race easily, beating fifteen runners by five lengths, defeating Forerunner (b c 1873 The Palmer), later the winner of the King Edward VII Stakes and Julius Caesar (b c 1873 St Albans) winner of the Royal Hunt Cup. Later that year he won the Grand Prix de Paris, at the time the richest race in the world. He collapsed after the St Leger in which he finished fourth to Petrarch (b c 1873 Lord Clifden) said to be due to insufficient training caused by a leg injury. He retired to the Park Paddocks at Newmarket but failed to appeal and was moved to the state stud at Napajedl in Hungary. He was subsequently sold for 80,000 marks to the Harzburg stud in Germany where he achieved some success. He was a Leading Sire in Germany three times, getting three winners of the Deutsches Derby, Hardenberg (b c 1890), Sperber (b c 1891) and Trollhetta (b c 1893). However, he is probably as well known for his daughter Sandal (b f 1885), for through her he appears in the pedigree of the Derby winner Blenheim (br c 1927 Blandford) a Leading Sire in America in 1941.

Kisber-Ocscse (HUN)
b c 1877 (Buccaneer - Mineral, by Rataplan). Sire Line Highflyer. Family 4-d. Bred in Hungary he was a full brother to the Derby winning Kisber, and a half brother to the St Leger winner Wenlock (b c 1869 Lord Clifden) and the Deutsches Derby winner Schwindler (ch c 1872 Adventurer).

Nereide (GER)
b f 1933 (Laland - Nella da Gubbio, by Grand Parade). Sire Line Highflyer. Family 4-r. Bred in the Gestut Erlenhof she was undefeated on the turf, winning all ten of her starts, and still remains one of the great runners ever produced in Germany. She won the Deutsches Derby in a track record time and the rest of her races with consummate ease. She once defeated the brilliantly fast Corrida (ch f 1932 Coronach), at that time considered the best in Europe and twice the winner of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. In the stud she got the stallions Nuvolari (b c 1938 Oleander) and Nordlicht (ch c 1941 Oleander), the latter the winner of the Deutsches Derby and the Oesterreichisches Derby.

More recent descendants include the Preis von Europa winner Well Made (br c 1997 Mondrian), the Derby del DDR winner Wolke (ch f 1969 Grande) and the Musidora Stakes winner Zahrat Dubai (b f 1996 Unfuwain).

Talpra Magyar (AH)
b c 1885 (Buccaneer - Kincsem, by Cambuscan). Sire Line Highflyer. Family 4-o. One of only five foals produced by Kincsem, he was the only living colt from his celebrated dam and Buccaneer, his half brother Kincs-Or (ch c 1886 Doncaster) died immediately prior to starting for the Deutsches Derby.
