Sire Line

Old Scar b c 1705 (Makeless - Bay Layton, by Darcy's Counsellor). Sire Line Darcy's Yellow Turk. Family 4.

Bred by William Croft of Barforth, Yorkshire, he was later purchased by William Cavendish (1673-1729), the 2nd Duke of Devonshire. Old Scar was a full brother to Chesnut Layton (ch f 1707 Makeless), the 2nd dam of Partner Mare (f 1730c Croft's Partner), taproot of Family 4-o.

Following his turf career he joined the Duke's stud at Chatsworth, Derbyshire, where Basto (br c 1703 Byerley Turk) and Childers (b c 1714 Darley Arabian) also stood. Old Scar produced several "eminent" racehorses and broodmares, among them the Duke's own Long John who in 1725 won a 200gs match at Newmarket in October from the Duke of Bridgewater's Hawker. Although none of the horses bred on in tail male, Long John was the broodmare sire of Mr Brooks's Rainbow (ch c 1752 Cornwall's Arabian) who won fifties at Chipping Norton, Tetbury and Northampton.
