Traveller

 

 

 

Sire Line


Highflyer

 

 

 

Traveller [Young Traveller] b c 1785 (Highflyer - Sister to Proserpine, by Henricus). Sire Line Highflyer. Family 11.

Traveller was bred by the noted breeder John Hutchinson, of Shipton, near York, who stood King Fergus (ch c 1775 Eclipse) after his return from Ireland in 1785. Mr Hutchinson also bred the St Leger winners Beningbrough (b c 1791 King Fergus), Hambletonian (b c 1792 King Fergus) and Young Traveller (ch c 1788 King Fergus).

Traveller was purchased by His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, later King George IV, prior to his last race as a four year old. The Prince had also owned the Derby winner Sir Thomas (ch c 1785 Pontac) and was the breeder of Escape (b c 1785 Highflyer) and Whiskey (b c 1798 Saltram).

Traveller immediately won a 500 guineas match against Grey Diomed (gr c 1785 Diomed) for the Prince, however, in the next three years he appeared unable to regain his four year old form. He retired from the turf as a seven year old. Despite his interesting pedigree, which included crosses to Blank (b c 1740 Godolphin Arabian) and his sister, and to Regulus (b c 1739 Godolphin Arabian) and his sister, Traveller made no mark on the stud book. He was shot in 1813.
