Minuet b f 1812 (Waxy - Woodbine, by Woodpecker). Sire Line Pot8os. Family 1-a.

Bred by George Henry Fitzroy (1760-1844), 4th Duke of Grafton, Minuet was one of four winners produced by her dam. Woodbine, also bred by the 4th Duke, produced four winners, including the full sisters Minuet and Music (b f 1810 Waxy), both Oaks Stakes winners. Minuet's sire Waxy (b c 1790 (Pot8os) had been purchased by the 3rd Duke of Grafton in 1808 and following his death became the property of the 4th Duke.

During her four year turf career Minuet won seven races, including the Oaks and July Stakes, collected two forfeits, and finished 2nd in the One Thousand Guineas Stakes. She was somewhat less successful in the stud with her best offspring the stallion Bolero (b c 1822 Partisan). Bolero's son Delapre (br c 1841) was sent to Australia and proved useful there and his daughter Glacis (ch f 1840) produced, among others, the Norfolk Stakes winner Citadel (ch f 1848 Epirus). Minuet was shot in April of 1833.
