Woful b c 1809 (Waxy - Penelope, by Trumpator). Sire Line Pot8os. Family 1-o.

Bred at Euston by Augustus Fitzroy (1735-1822), 3rd Duke of Grafton, the owner of his sire and the breeder of his dam, Woful was a full brother to the Derby winners Whalebone (br c 1807 Waxy) and Whisker (b c 1812 Waxy). The fourth son of the remarkable Penelope, he was said to resemble her in all respects, especially her excellent shoulders, except that he was much larger.

He won twelve races in all, counting the forfeits paid to him. He didn't start for either the Derby or the St Leger although he defeated some horses who had been among the Derby field, which was won that year by Octavius (br c 1809 Orville). He broke down running against Lord Foley's Teasdale (br c 1807 Mr Teazle) and was retired to the stud.

Although his stud career cannot be compared to his brothers, Whalebone and Whisker, he had considerable success, certainly more than the Derby winner, getting the winners of five classics races: the One Thousand Guineas winner Arab (br f 1824), the Oaks winner Augusta (b f 1818), the St Leger winner Theodore (b c 1819), and Zinc (br f 1820), winner of both the One Thousand Guineas and Oaks Stakes. In all, fifty-eight of his offspring won £33,589. Woful was sold for 510 guineas and sent to Prussia in the autumn of 1832.
