Sire Line


Godolphin Arabian

 

 

 

Trentham b c 1766 (Gower's Sweepstakes - Miss South, by South). Sire Line Godolphin Arabian. Family 5.

Trentham was bred by Sir John Moore from his homebred mare Miss South and was the first and most successful of her offspring. She herself won two races, at Newmarket and Ascot, before going lame in her third start after which she was taken out of training. Trentham was sold at Sir John's sale to Charles Ogilvy who ran him until 1771 when he was purchased by Patrick Blake for £1575. He was next sold to Lord Foley & the Rt Hon Charles James Fox, and at the end of 1773 to Sir Charles Sedley, and again at the end of 1776 to Mr Codrington, and eventually to Lord Egremont.

Known as the "terrible horse Trentham" he ran from three to ten amassing earnings of over £8450 and two Jockey Club Plates whilst beating most of the best of his generation. He won eleven in a row and lost only fourteen times during his long turf career, mostly to good runners such as Conductor (ch c 1767 Matchem), Mambrino (gr c 1768 Engineer), Pumpkin (ch c 1769 Matchem) and Johnny (b c 1769 Matchem).

He retired to Lord Egremont's stud at Petworth, Sussex, where he commanded a fee as high as 10 guineas. He achieved distinction as the sire of the Oaks winner Tag, along with many other fine runners. Trentham died around 1792.
