St George (GB)
 
 


St George

 

 

 

 

Sire Line


Highflyer

 

 

 

St George b c 1789 (Highflyer - Mare, by Eclipse). Sire Line Highflyer. Family 9.

St George was bred from an Eclipse mare belonging to Dennis O'Kelly and began his turf career in the stable of the Honourable Charles Wyndham. After his 5th place in the Derby he was sold to R Taylor, who ran him with some success in the following three years. He was purchased in 1795 by Lord Darlington, for whom he garnered the Jockey Club Plate and "The Whip" at Newmarket. Sold yet again to the Honourable George Watson he ran for two more years, winning several Fifties.

The American Stud Book records him as an American import in error for St George (br c 1774 Dragon) [AmSB1:55].

In the stud he got a Derby winner in Pan (ch c 1805) and his son Zodiac (ch c 1801) got the 4th dam of St Simon (br c 1881 Galopin).
