Pantaloon & Languish
Ghuznee (Pantaloon - Languish) and her filly
c 1824 (Castrel - Idalia, by Peruvian). Sire
Bred by Robert Grosvenor
(1767-1845), 2nd Earl Grosvenor and 1st Marquess of Westminster,
Eaton Hall, Cheshire, and Oxcroft Farm, near West Wratting in
Cambridgeshire, he was a half brother to Biddy (ch f
1839 Bran) the taproot mare of
The Grosvenor stud produced
many fine horses, including the St Leger winner and Champion
Stallion Touchstone (br c 1831
Camel), the St Leger winner Launcelot (br c 1837 Camel) and the
Two Thousand Guineas winner Flatcatcher (b c 1845
Touchstone). Pantaloon was
purchased by Mr Giffard prior to his turf career. Mr Giffard
also owned and raced Leviathan
(ch c 1823 Muley).
He was said to have been "profusely marked with
black spots," and "built on a very large scale with heavy neck and
first class legs". Although his sire Castrel was said to be a
roarer this affliction did not appear to affect Pantaloon as he
was undefeated on the turf. Only running as a three year old he
won six races but was disqualified for the seventh.
In the stud he got the St
Leger winner Satirist (br c 1838), the Oaks winner Ghuznee (b f
1838) and the Two Thousand Guineas winner Hernandez (br c 1848);
the first two ran for the Marquess. Despite the fact that his
stock were thought to be "nearly all bad foal-getters," his son
Windhound (br c 1847) got the great
Thormanby (ch c 1857),
thus making his contribution to the Thormanby branch of the
Turk Sire Line which descends to The Tetrarch and beyond. Pantaloon died at Cawston Lodge in
October of 1850.
