Sire Line


Camel



Shotover ch f 1879 (Hermit - Stray Shot, by Toxophilite). Sire Line Camel. Family 13-c.

Bred by Henry Chaplin (later Lord Chaplin), Shotover was sold as a yearling to Hugh Lupus Grosvenor (1825-1899) the 1st Duke of Westminster. Her dam, Stray Shot (b f 1872 Toxophilite), won seven races herself was a full sister to the smart filly Bel Phoebe (b f 1874), winner of the One Thousand Guineas Stakes, the Coronation Stakes, Liverpool Autumn Cup and the Manchester November Handicap. Stray Shot, bred by Sir Joseph Hawley, also produced Penitent (ch f 1884 Hermit), winner of the Ascot Stakes, the Alexandra Plate and the Hardwicke Stakes as well as runner-up in the Two Thousand Guineas Stakes, the Derby Stakes and the St Leger Stakes, and later, the dam of Ravensbury (b c 1890 Isonomy).

Shotover's two year old season was unremarkable. At three, however, she grew into her frame and came into form, winning the Two Thousand Guineas Stakes from Quicklime (b c 1879 Wenlock) and Marden (b c 1879 Hermit), the Derby Stakes from Quicklime and Bruce (b c 1879 See Saw), the Ascot Derby (now called the King Edward VII Stakes) and the Park Hill Stakes. She was also runner-up in the One Thousand Guineas Stakes to St Marguerite (ch f 1879 Hermit), the St Leger Stakes to Dutch Oven (br c 1879 Dutch Skater) and the Select Stakes. Having lost her form at four she was retired from the turf.

In the stud she produced the Champion Stakes winner Orion although it was her fillies who made the greater contribution. Sent to America, Isis was the ancestress of numerous good winners including Devil Diver (b c 1939 St. Germans), and some equally good winners in Argentina and Brazil trace to Simoon. Ornis achieved the distinction of becoming the eighth dam of the leading sire Mr Prospector (b c 1970 Raise a Native) and the ninth dam of the triple crown winner and leading sire Seattle Slew (bbr c 1974 Bold Reasoning). Shotover was destroyed in 1898.
