Penelope

 

 

 

Sire Line


Matchem

 

 

 

 

Penelope b f 1798 (Trumpator - Prunella, by Highflyer). Sire Line Matchem. Family 1-o.

One of the most important mares in the history of the stud book, she was bred at Euston Hall in Suffolk, near Thetford on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, by Augustus Henry Fitzroy (1735-1811), the 3rd Duke of Grafton. She was a half sister to the Derby winner Waxy Pope (b c 1806 Waxy), and to the Oaks winner Pelisse (br f 1801 Whiskey).

Although she didn't run for any classics she did win most of her races during a five year turf career defeating Sir Charles Bunbury's Derby and Oaks winner Eleanor (b f 1798 Whiskey) on two occasions. Her most notable wins were a Jockey Club Plate, two King's Plates and two editions of the Oatlands Stakes.

In the stud she bred 13 foals, most of them to Waxy. Among her offspring were the two excellent stallions Whalebone (br c 1807 Waxy) and Whisker (b c 1812 Waxy), and the One Thousand Guineas Stakes winner Whizgig (ch f 1819 Rubens). Penelope heads her own branch, Family 1-o, of Family 1, descending from Tregonwell's Natural Barb Mare. She died in 1824.
