Sire Line


Leedes Arabian

 

 

Star [Bridgewater's] c 1725 (Ashridge Ball - Mare, by Richards's [Conyers] Arabian). Sire Line Leedes Arabian.

Star was bred by Scrope Egerton (1681-1745), the 1st Duke of Bridgewater, who also owned his sire, Ashridge Ball, from a mare by Richards' Arabian at Hampton Court. Ashridge was the Hertfordshire seat of the Earls and Dukes of Bridgewater which is now the Bonar Law College. Star was a half brother to Portland Arabian Mare, the dam of Chedworth's Moses (ch c 1746 Howe's Foxhunter) a stallion in Lord Gower's stud. The Duke matched an earlier Starr against the Duke of Rutland's Scarecrow for £200 at Newmarket in 1713.

 In the stud he got the Honourable George Shirley's Ashridge Star (b c 1735c), who is confused in the General Stud Book with Mr Norris's Star.
