Lamprie (GB)
 
 


Lamprie

 

 

Sire Line


Darcy's White Turk

 

 

Lamprie gr c 1716 (Grey Hautboy - Mare, by Makeless). Sire Line Darcy's White Turk. Family 37.

His name was also spelled Lamprey and Lampere. Bred by Thomas Panton, he was later sold to Mr F Neale and Sir William Morgan (1700-1731) of Tredegar. The latter also owned Cartouch (c 1717c Bald Galloway). Although the General Stud Book gives his year of birth as 1715 his racing record indicates that he was born in 1716. He was a full brother to Sir Matthew Pearson's (1651-1712) Champion Sire Bay Bolton (br c 1705).

Although he got some excellent runners, Lamprie was "unfortunately killed" just as he was coming into prominence as a stallion. His son Young Lamprie, sired the Irish stallion Ground Ivy (b c 1737).

Race Record
 
In 1721 Lamprie won a match at Newmarket, beating the Duke of Somerset's mare. According to some sources this same year he won the King's Plate at Lewes, however, it seems more likely that this occurred in 1722.
 
In May of 1722 he won a 200 guineas match at Newmarket, defeating the Duke of Somerset's Whitelips (b f 1718 Bald Galloway), conceding her a stone over four miles. The same year he won the King's Plate at Lewes, beating Mr Cotton's Grey Ovington (gr c 1718 Bald Galloway) and three others. Starting for Mr Neale in October he won the King's Plate at Newmarket, beating Mr Duncombe's Hazard [ex-Dart] (ch c 1715 Bald Galloway) along with four others. He was then sold to Sir William Morgan.
 
In April of 1723 he won the King's Plate at Newmarket, beating six others.
 
In April of 1724 he won a 200 guineas match at Newmarket, beating Lord Milsington's Rake (b c 1715 Greyhound), conceding two pounds. Two weeks later, still at Newmarket, he collected a 100 guineas forfeit from Rake. The same day he collected another 100 guineas forfeit from Lord Milsington's celebrated Buckhunter (ch g 1713 Bald Galloway), who was later known as the Carlisle Gelding. The following October he won a 200 guineas match at Newmarket from Lord Tankerville's famous Sophonisba (ch f 1717 Dyer's Dimple).
 
In April of 1725 Lamprie won a 40 guineas match at Newmarket from Mr Grisewood's Puzzle (gr g), conceding a stone. Still at Newmarket in October, he defeated the worthy Sophonisba, now owned by Lord Halifax, a second time, on this occasion conceding six pounds. Lamprie did not start in either 1726 or 1727.
 
In 1728 he lost the Gold Cup at Warwick to Lord Essex's Smiling Ball (ch c Merlin) at equal weights. He then lost a 50 guineas Plate at Leighton, after which he was sent to the stud.
