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.
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.

Family 16-c. His
dam, Festa, a sister to Desmond (bbl c 1896

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

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.
