Dorimant ch c 1772 (Otho- Mare by Babraham). Sire Line St. Victor Barb. Family 40.

Bred in Bedfordshire by John FitzPatrick (1745-1818), 2nd Earl of Upper Ossory, County Cork, Ireland, who served as Lord Lieutenant of Bedfordshire and had property at Ampthill Park, he raced from 1775 to 1780. During the course of his distinguished turf career he numbered such notable horses as Pot8os (ch c 1773 Eclipse) and Sweetwilliam (ch c 1768 Syphon) among his victims while his defeats came from the likes of Highflyer (b c 1774 Herod), King Fergus (ch c 1775 Eclipse and Pot8os (ch c 1773 Eclipse).

Dorimant retired to the Ampthill Park stud of Lord Ossory where he produced some good racehorses. His most notable offspring include (1) Grey Dorimant (gr f 1781), the dam of the famous racehorse Grey Diomed (gr c 1785 Diomed) who was later exported to Russia, (2) Gabriel* (b c 1790), an excellent racehorse and stallion, and later a useful sire in America, there producing, among others, Ogle's Oscar (b c 1800), and (3) the equally useful mare Sister to Strawberry* (b f 1787), whose descendants contributed to the stud books of England, Australia and America.
