Orlando b c 1841 (Touchstone - Vulture, by Langar). Sire Line Camel. Family 13-a.

He was bred and raced by Colonel (later Major-General) Jonathan Peel (1799-1879), younger brother of Prime Minister Sir Robert Peel, who also bred the Two Thousand Guineas Stakes winner Archibald (b c 1829 Paulowitz). His dam, Vulture (ch f 1833), bred by Mr Allanson and sold to Colonel Peel in in 1836, was described as "the speediest animal of her day," and once beat Grey Momus (gr c 1835 Comus) for a 1000 match whilst giving him nearly 40 pounds. She was a half sister to Lady Moore Carew (b f 1830 Tramp) and Lancashire Witch (ch f 1842 Tomboy), to both of whom trace successful and durable branches of Family 13-a, the latter's descendants in Australia and New Zealand.

A "singularly elegant and handsome horse," he stood over 15 hands 2 inches with a white face and white hind stockings. Said to be finely knit with strong quarters he was thought "rather wide in the chest and too thick in the shoulder," which faults were said to be "characteristic of the Touchstones". He won almost every race he entered including the Derby Stakes which he was awarded on the disqualification of the four year old Running Rein.

Purchased after his turf career by Mr Charles Greville, he covered initially at Barrow's Stud Paddocks at Newmarket and at Bonehill Farm, near Tamworth, then later moved to Hampton Court. His stock were said to possess great substance, with splendid action and symmetry and inclined to be "a little gaudy, with tapering heads and a tendency to white." In the stud he got the Derby winner Teddington (ch c 1848) and the Two Thousand Guineas winners Fazzoletto (b c 1853), Fitz-Roland (ch c 1855) and Diophantus (ch c 1858). His St. Leger winner, Imperieuse (b f 1854), also won the One Thousand Guineas Stakes. He was a Champion Sire in 1851, 1854 and 1858.

Orlando died at Hampton Court in December of 1868.

Bred by Colonel Anson and owned by Mr Howard, then Mr Pedley, he won the Dee Stakes, the Chester Cup, the Racing Stakes at Goodwood and several other races. He finished 4th in the St Leger, won by Knight of St. George (b c 1851 Birdcatcher), with Lord Zetland's Ivan (b c 1851 Van Tromp) placing 2nd and Mr Peck's Arthur Wellesley (b c 1851 Melbourne) 3rd. Imported by R Aitcheson Alexander of the Woodburn Stud Farm at Spring Station in Woodford County, Kentucky, in 1857, his stud career there was fairly undistinguished despite meeting with daughters of Lexington (b c 1850 Boston) and Glencoe (ch c 1831 Sultan).
 
Fazzoletto
Fazzoletto b c 1853 (Orlando - Canezou, by Melbourne). Sire Line Camel. Family 31.
Bred by Edward Geoffrey Smith Stanley (1799-1869), 14th Earl of Derby, from his mare Canezou (br f 1845 Melbourne) who won the One Thousand Guineas, the Doncaster Cup and the Goodwood Cup twice. She also produced the St James's Palace Stakes winner Paletot (br c 1852 Touchstone).

Eclipse
Eclipse b c 1855 (Orlando - Gaze, by Bay Middleton). Sire Line Camel. Family 1-s.
Bred by Mr Greville he won the Clearwell Stakes and went unplaced for the Champagne Stakes as a two year old. At three he ran a dead-heat for the Newmarket Stakes with the Derby winner Beadsman (br c 1855 Weatherbit). He also won the Sales Stakes and the Ascot Biennial beating the Two Thousand Guineas winner (Fitz-Roland ch c 1855 Orlando) and the St Leger winner Sunbeam (b f 1855 Chanticleer) in the latter. He was unplaced for the Derby and the Cambridgeshire Stakes. He was imported into America by Mr Francis Morris of New York and covered at the Morris stud in Westchester County where he was great success. He was thought to produce speed with his two year olds coming to hand early and sufficiently impressive that they were often raced into unsoundness before graduating to longer races. Probably his most famous offspring were those who ran in the "Barbarous" colours, so called because they were all from the mare Barbarity (b f 1854 Simoom), of the Morris family and included Ruthless (b f 1864) who won the Belmont and Travers Stakes and was inducted into the Racing Hall of Fame in 1975, Regardless (b f 1871) who won the Alabama Stakes and the Monmouth Oaks, and Merciless (b f 1873) who won the Alabama Stakes. Another daughter, Lady Blessington (b f 1861), became the dam of the Champagne Stakes winner Lady Rosebery (ch f 1878 Kingfisher) and the Monmouth Oaks winner Duchess (br f 1881 Kingfisher) as well as ancestress to a very successful branch of Family 4-r. Without doubt his most remarkable son was Alarm (b c 1869) who got Himyar (b c 1875) who in turn got (1) Domino (br c 1891) who heads the American branch of the Darley Arabian sire line of such 20th century stallions as the Derby winner Teenoso (b c 1980 Youth), the Preakness winner Alsab (b c 1939 Good Goods) and the Kentucky Derby winner Shut Out (ch c 1939 Equipoise) and (2) Plaudit (br c 1895) who provides the same service for Dr. Fager (b c 1964 Rough'n Tumble) and Holy Bull (gr c 1991 Great Above).
 
Trumpeter
Trumpeter ch c 1856 (Orlando - Cavatina, by Redshank). Sire Line Camel. Family 1-o.
The best of the eight yearlings sold from the Hampton Court stud in 1857, he was purchased by Harry Hill for 290gs. A light chestnut with three white heels and a bald face he was said to be "full of quality". In his only start as a two year old he was unplaced at Bath. The following year he won the 8 furlong Biennial at Newmarket Craven and the 12 furlong Biennial at Bath, pulling up "very lame" in the latter. Nevertheless he started 3rd favourite for the Derby and finished 3rd to Musjid (br c 1856 Newminster) and Marionette (b c 1856 Touchstone). One of his legs gave out altogther and he was taken out of training. He covered initially at Althorp and later at Hampton Court. His stock were often said to be "delicate and difficult to train". Queen's Messenger (b c 1869) was thought "one of the gamest horses that ever looked through a bridle" and was noted for the beauty of his "small Arab-like head and ears" and won the Prince of Wales's Stakes and the St James's Palace Stakes. Salpinctes (b c 1862) won the Cesarewitch. Other sons include Distin (b c 1864) who was used in the stud, and Plutus (b c 1863), a stallion in France, who was the grandsire of the St Leger winner Rayon d'Or (ch c 1876 Flageolet) who in turn was the grandsire of the Two Thousand Guineas winner Norman (b c 1905 Octagon). His best known daughter is perhaps Land's End (ch f 1873) who became the 3rd dam of the Ascot Gold Cup winner Cyllene (ch c 1895 Bona Vista). Basilia (ch f 1866) was the 2nd dam of the highly regarded Prix de Diane and Prix Royal Oak winner Bavarde (br f 1884 Hermit) who produced the Prix Royal Oak winner Bombon (ch c 1892 Richelieu). Bijou (ch f 1869) was the 2nd dam of the Prix du Jockey Club winner Callistrate (br c 1890 Cambyse). May Queen (br f 1863) was the ancestress of the French stallion Saint Just (ch c 1907 St. Frusquin) and a large family of winners and Quick Stream (ch f 1873) the ancestress of an extensive and successful branch of Family 19-b.
 
Chattanooga
Chattanooga ch c 1862 (Orlando - Ayacanora, by Birdcatcher). Sire Line Camel. Family 3-n.
His dam Ayacanora (ch f 1854) won the Ham Stakes at Goodwood, the Hopeful Stakes and the Column Stakes and finished 3rd to Imperieuse (b f 1854 Orlando) for the One Thousand Guineas Stakes. The Royal Stud acquired her and her foal Cachuca (b f 1860 Voltigeur) from Lord Portsmouth in 1861. She also produced the July Stakes winner Sir Amyas (ch c 1869 Orlando). Chattanooga was beset by problems with his wind, probably inherited from his grandam Pocahontas (b f 1837 Glencoe), and ran only as a two year old when he won the Criterion Stakes. In the stud he got Printanniere (bl f 1872), the dam of the Rous Memorial Stakes and Lincolnshire Handicap winner Poulet (ch c 1877 Peut-Etre), and Wellingtonia (ch c 1869) who became a very successful stallion in France. Chattanooga himself was leased for the stud to France in 1878 and exported there in 1885.
 
Teddington
Teddington ch c 1848 (Orlando - Miss Twickenham, by Rockingham). Sire Line Camel. Family 2-t.
Bred by Jack Tomlinson he was campaigned by Sir Joseph Henry Hawley (1814-1875), 3rd Bt, Leybourne, Kent, who also raced the Derby winners Beadsman (br c 1855 Weatherbit), Musjid (br c 1856 Newminster) and Blue Gown (b c 1865 Beadsman) along with the Two Thousand Guineas winner Fitz-Roland (ch c 1855 Orlando) and the St. Leger winner Pero Gomez (b c 1866 Beadsman). He was described as a small short horse "low in withers, straight in shoulders, short and upright in pasterns, small-footed" and "calf-kneed" although his head and neck were "especially game and bloodlike". His speed, bottom and weight carrying ability were attibuted to his "high muscular loins and fine slashing action". In 1850 he won the 920 Chesterfield Stakes at Newmarket in July beating Ariosto (ch g 1848 Orlando) and the 350 Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood beating Hippolytus (b c Emilius). In 1851 he won a 700 sweep at Newmarket Craven beating Midas (ch c Beiram). He next won the Derby at Epsom beating Marlborough Buck (b c 1848 Venison) by 2 lengths, the Northumberland Plate winner Neasham (br c 1848 Hetman Platoff), the Two Thousand Guineas winner Hernandez (br c 1848 Pantaloon) and 29 others, including Newminster (b c 1848 Touchstone), Mountain Deer (b c 1848 Touchstone) and the Doncaster Cup winner Hungerford (ch c 1848 John o'Gaunt). Although he had a sore leg before the Derby and would only "pick the split peas out of his corn" his jockey noted that he only had to spur him once and he "came with such a vengeance as almost to run over Ariosto". He also walked over for the Don Stakes and won a 1000 sovs match at Newmarket Second October from Mountain Deer. In 1852 he walked over for 200 sovs at Goodwood, won the 280 Cup at Warwick beating Little Harry (b c 1849 Epirus) by a head and the Cup at Doncaster, beating the Goodwood Cup winner Kingston (b c 1849 Venison) by a neck. In 1853 he won the 500 sovs Emperor of Russia's Plate (Ascot Gold Cup) beating Stockwell (ch c 1849 The Baron). In the stud his sons were generally unremarkable, however, several of his daughters achieved considerable distinction. Marigold (ch f 1860) won the Stewards' Cup and produced the Derby winner and Ascot Gold Cup winner Doncaster (ch c 1870 Stockwell). William Stirling Crawfurd's Mayonaise (b f 1856) won the One Thousand Guineas Stakes and is the taproot mare of Family 3-l while another daughter Tight-Fit (b f 1856) is the the taproot mare of Family 13-d. Teddington was sent to Austria-Hungary about 1862.
 
Fitz-Roland
Fitz-Roland ch c 1855 (Orlando - Stamp, by Emilius). Sire Line Camel. Family 1-b.
Bred by HM Queen Victoria he was a full brother to the Ascot Stakes winner Redemption (ch f 1852). The highest priced yearling in the Hampton Court sale of 1856 he was purchased and raced by Sir Joseph Hawley, the owner of Teddington (above). He finished 6th in the Woodcote Stakes in his only appearance as a two year old. At three he won the Two Thousand Guineas Stakes at Newmarket, beating The Happy Land (br c 1855 Jericho) by a length and a half. Many thought The Happy Land deserved the win. An anonymous letter to Lord Ribblesdale, the owner of The Happy Land, had said that Fordham, his jockey, intended to prevent the horse from winning and the letter so upset Fordham that he sent The Happy Land along the entire way at such a pace that the field was left behind and Fitz-Roland only caught him towards the end. He went unplaced in Beadsman's Derby but won the St James's Palace Stakes and the Stockbridge Derby, both over 8 furlongs. He didn't race again until he was five when he went unplaced to Baron de Rothschild's Queen of the Vale (b f 1858 King Tom) for the Queen's Stand Stakes at Ascot. He covered briefly at Hampton Court before being sent north. His stud career was relatively unremarkable. His son Paladin (ch c 1870) had some success in the stud in France getting the Prix Jean Prat winner Amazon (ch c 1886) and later the Priz Rieki Wolgi winner Etna (ch f 1890) in Russia. His daughter Miss Roland (b f 1863) produced the St Leger and Doncaster Cup winner Craig Millar (ch c 1872 Blair Athol). Another daughter Genuine (br f 1869) was the 3rd dam of the Two Thousand Guineas winner Sweeper (ch c 1909 Broomstick) and ancestress of many other winners in Family 8-f.
 
Diophantus
Diophantus ch c 1858 (Orlando - Equation, by Emilius). Sire Line Camel. Family 7-a.

He then finished 3rd for the Derby at Epsom won by Kettledrum, finished 3rd for the 465 Ascot Biennial won by Lupus, won the 225 Midsummer Stakes "in a canter" by 3 lengths at Newmarket in July beating Russley and walked over for 300 sovs at Goodwood.

Chevalier D'Industrie ch c 1854 (Orlando - Industry, by Priam). Sire Line Camel. Family 2-f.
Bred by Charles F Greville his dam (br f 1835) won the Oaks Stakes and produced the Coronation Stakes winners Stitch (b f 1842 Hornsea), Distaffina (b f 1845 Don John) and Barcelona (br f 1848 Don John). She was thought "pretty to the eye, and possessed of considerable spirit," although she "was of an uncommonly nervous temperment." Standing over 16 hands Chevalier D'Industrie was said to have a neat head well set on to a good strong neck with excellent shoulders, a "capital barrel," and a "rare good back". His strong legs were pronounced "decidedly short," although apparently no detraction to his grand carriage. His temperment was notably good. He was sold as a yearling for 255gs in Mr Greville's sale to Mr Padwick and trained by Mr Goater at Findon. In 1856 he won a 355 sweep at Northampton, beating Lord Anglesey's Tricolor (b f 1854 Touchstone), finished 2nd for the 670 Chesterfield Stakes at Newmarket in July after running a dead heat with Lord Glasgow's roan Hernandez filly and then losing the run off, finished 2nd for the 296 Bentinck Memorial at Goodwood won by Mr I'Anson's Blink Bonny (b f 1854 Melbourne), went unplaced for the 415 Eglinton Stakes at Doncaster and finished 3rd for the 390 Triennial at Newmarket First October. In 1857 he was unplaced for Blink Bonny's Derby at Epsom, finished 2nd for the Cup at the same meeting, finished 3rd for the 450 Ascot Derby, was unplaced for the Cup at the same place won by Skirmisher (br c 1854 Voltigeur), won the 1000 Gratwicke Stakes at Goodwood beating Zuyder Zee (b c 1854 Orlando), finished 2nd for 296 Bentinck Memorial Stakes at the same meeting won by Blink Bonny by 20 lengths, walked over for the Cup at Brighton and finished 3rd for the 300 sovs Royal Plate at Hereford won by the Ascot Gold Cup winner Fisherman (br c 1853 Heron).

His best son was Friponnier (ch c 1864) although he is probably better known as the sire of the 2nd dam of the triple crown winner  Isinglass (b c 1890 Isonomy).
