Sire Line


Darcy's White Turk

 

Fearnought [Ramsden's, Bolton's] br c 1725 (Bay Bolton - Mare, by Lexington Arabian). Sire Line Darcy's White Turk. Family 1.

Bred by Sir William Ramsden of Byram, in Yorkshire, he was later purchased by the Duke of Bolton, who had also owned his sire, Bay Bolton. Said to be the best horse of his time at Newmarket, he raced from 1730 to 1733, always over a 4 mile track.

Fearnought stood at Bolton Hall, Bedale, Yorkshire, although he was said to have covered very few mares. The contribution to the stud book was made by Brother to Fearnought.

At Newmarket in March of 1731 Fearnought collected a 100 guineas forfeit from Mr Panton's Strickland (br c Strickland Turk [Carlisle's Barb]).

Back at Newmarket in October he lost a 500 guineas match to the Duke of Devonshire's Little Scar (br c 1724 Basto).

1732 proved a good year for Fearnought. At Newmarket in March he won a 500 guineas match from Mr Coke's Hobgoblin (br c 1724 Aleppo). Later in October he won another 500 guineas match from Mr Panton's Mouse (b c Childers), and in November beat Mouse yet again for a 1000 guineas match.
