Walton b c 1799 (Sir Peter Teazle - Arethusa, by Dungannon). Sire Line Highflyer. Family 7.

Bred and owned by Sir Hedworth Williamson (1751-1810), 6th Baronet, from a mare bred by the Prince of Wales, he was a full brother to the Derby winner Williamson's Ditto (b c 1800 Sir Peter Teazle) and a half brother to the Derby winner Pan (ch c 1805 St. George) and the Ascot Gold Cup winner Lutzen (b c 1809 Firelock).

Although "The Druid" notes in Silk and Scarlet that "Sir John Shelley bought the clever, but cobby-looking Walton, when he was beaten for the Craven Stakes by Aniseed, in the year that Old Eleanor was third," the racing calendars of the day record that Walton spent his entire turf career in the custody of Sir Hedworth Williamson. Despite the fact that his jockey Buckle remarked that "he was always on his head for the first mile," he managed to win a number of King's Plates and defeat the likes of Sir Charles Bunbury's Derby and Oaks winner Eleanor (b f 1798 Whiskey) and the Duke of Grafton's Penelope (b f 1798 Trumpator).

Walton went to stud at Newmarket in 1808 for a fee of 10gs and stayed there until 1810, when he moved to Gipping-Hall, near Stowmarket, Suffolk, covering there from 1811 to 1814, earning 26gs the latter two years. In 1815 he moved north to the Grantham Arms at Boroughbridge, Yorkshire, for two years, covering at 10gs. In 1817 he was back at Newmarket (20gs); in 1818 he went north again to Boroughbridge where he stayed until 1824 (his fee varying yearly between 10 and 20gs) when he moved to Snape Hall, near Bedale.

His most notable sons were Phantom and Partisan. Phantom (b c 1808), Derby winner and Champion Sire in 1820 and 1824, got the Derby winners Cedric (ch c 1821) and Middleton (ch c 1822), the Two Thousand Guineas winners Enamel (ch c 1822) and Pindarrie (b c 1817) and the One Thousand Guineas and Oaks winner Cobweb (b f 1821). Partisan (b c 1811), got the Derby winner Mameluke (b c 1824), the Two Thousand Guineas winner Patron (ch c 1826), the Oaks winner Cyprian (b f 1833), the One Thousand Guineas winner Zeal (b f 1818) and the stallions Venison (br c 1833) and Gladiator (ch c 1833), the latter a contributor to the Highflyer sire line.

Walton was Champion Sire in 1816 and 1818. He died in December of 1825.
