Sir Peter Teazle
Mameluke, by Partisan
|Partisan b c 1811 (Walton
- Parasol, by
Pot8os). Sire Line
Bred by the Duke of Grafton, he was a half brother to the Two
Thousand Guineas and Oaks winner Pastille (b f 1819
Rubens) and the Two Thousand
Guineas winner Pindarrie (b c 1817 Phantom). A bright bay with
one white hind foot, he stood 15.2 hands and was said to be
"very muscular in form, without heaviness". He was described as
a "beautiful short-legged horse, with a lovely head, straight
hocks, and a somewhat clubby off fore-foot". The trainers of his
era were said to unanimously refer to him "with much fondness,
as being like a piece of machinery in his action".
Although blessed with
abundant speed he was considered backwards at three but much
improved at four, when he defeated such good horses as Bourbon
(b c 1811 Sorcerer).
He was entered for the Derby but his trainer, Mr. Robson, could
not get him properly prepared due to the length and severity of
the previous winter. Following his retirement from the turf he covered at Link's Farm, Newmarket.
His notable stallion sons
include (1) Gladiator (ch c 1833)
who produced Doncaster Cup and Queen's Vase winner Sweetmeat (br
c 1842) and the venerable Queen Mary (b f 1843),
taproot mare of Family 10-a,
before his export to France, and (2) the Champion Sire
Venison (br c 1833).
Partisan died in March of 1835.

Sophia, by Stamford),
bred by Mr Elwes, was purchased by the 5th Earl of Jersey as
a foal. He won a controversial Derby Stakes, as the
second Horse, Glenartney, also owned by Lord Jersey,

to Matilda for the St Leger which also generated
controversy as Mameluke was thought to have been
purposely jostled at the start. The following year

at Newmarket. In his five year old campaign he won a
