1722 (Alcock's Arabian - Sister to Soreheels,
Arabian. Family 9-a.
There were several
horses named Crab who stood in the early part of the eighteenth
century, causing confusion in the pedigrees of their descendants,
especially as Lord Portmore owned three of them. Also Mr Cheny referred to Old Crab as "the Earl of Portmore's
Crab" in his Racing Calendars [Early Records:35].
Manners was the family name of the Dukes of Rutland,
and Crab is referred to as the Duke of Rutland's
Crab in some pedigrees.
by Charles Pelham [Pick 1:20], Crab passed through a
number of hands prior to entering the stud of Mr Panton.
He was said to resemble his maternal grandsire
and to pass on his sturdiness and stamina to his descendants.
In England he got
a number of excellent sons, and some equally valuable
daughters. In America he was represented by Othello*.
He was also grandsire of Sober John* (br c 1748), Valiant*
(b c 1747), Bucephalus* (br c 1758) and Blossom (f
1768), and the maternal grandsire of Aristotle* (br c
led the sires' list in England in 1748, 1749 and 1750.
It is recorded in the 2nd Duke of Devonshire's Tryal Book
that Crab died at Mr Panton's stud in Newmarket on December
5, 1750 [Early Records:161], however, in the General
Stud Book "Obituary of Stallions" he is said
to have died on Christmas Day in 1750 [GSB 1:395].

1746 (Crab - Somerset's Favourite, by Hampton Court Childers
- Mare, by Hobgoblin - Mare,

Arabian. Bred by Right Hon Lord Kingston, he is generally confused
in American stud books with Lord Portmore's Othello, above,
although the evidence shows Portmore's Othello to have
been standing in England eight years after the appearance
of Lord Kingston's Othello in Maryland [E2:60]. This was doubtlessly complicated
by the fact that both Othellos were also called Black-and-all-Black.
He was described as a beautiful black horse standing fifteen
hands and very strong. Apparently he was never raced but
entered the stud in England as Lord Kingston's Black Horse
from 1752 to 1755. In the fall of 1756 he was sent to
Maryland consigned to Benjamin Tasker Jr at whose Bellair
stud in Prince George's County he remained from 1756 to
1760. For 1761 and 1762 he moved to Nathaniel Harrison's
Brandon in Virginia, and then back to Governor Sharpe's
Whitehall stud in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, where
he died in 1772. He earned a reputation for the consistent
quality of his offspring all of whom were reputed to be
good and stout runners. He got the unbeaten Galloway's
Selim (bbr c 1759), Gantt's True Briton (b c 1757) and
numerous daughters of quality, including the matriarch
Stella (f 1758) of the Selima* branch of

served very few blood mares despite which he got a number
of good race horses as well as Sober John* (br c 1748);
Rib Mare (gr f 1751), the 3rd dam of the St Leger and Doncaster Cup winner Young Traveller (ch c 1788
