Chelandry b f 1894 (Goldfinch - Illuminata, by Rosicrucian). Sire Line Bend Or. Family 1-n.

Bred at Mentomore by Archibald Philip Primrose (1847-1929), 5th Earl Rosebery and Prime Minister of England, Chelandry was a half sister to the Two Thousand Guineas and Derby Stakes winner Ladas (b c 1891 Hampton).

Ulbrich describes her as "a sweet tempered mare" who was held in both affection and regard by those who knew her. Leicester calls her "one of the great tap roots of modern bloodstock the world over." In the stud she produced sixteen consecutive foals, among them the Two Thousand Guineas winner Neil Gow (ch c 1907 Marco), the July Stakes winner Traquair (ch c 1904 Ayrshire), the Cheveley Park Stakes winner Skyscraper (ch f 1900 Ayrshire), and the Molecomb Stakes winner Perdiccas (ch c 1906 Persimmon) who was later sent to Russia.

Chelandry died in 1917. She heads her own branch of Family 1, tracing to Tregonwell's Natural Barb Mare.
