Sire Line







Pantaloon ch c 1824 (Castrel - Idalia, by Peruvian). Sire Line Buzzard. Family 17-a.

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 Family 17-b.

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 Byerley Turk Sire Line which descends to The Tetrarch and beyond. Pantaloon died at Cawston Lodge in October of 1850.
