A Comparative List
 
Racehorses (& breeding given elsewhere) From the list of Michaelmas, 1731
   
  1.  ____ light grey mare; got by Mixbury & bought of Mr Thornton
   
  2.  ____ grey mare (blind of an Eye); got by Woodcock, & bred by Ld Darcy, bought of Mr Thornton
   
  3.  [1717] light grey mare called Molly, bred by Sir Michael Warton [& raced by him at York, 14 Aug 1723]; got by a Son of the Old Bay Barb, & out of the Old gray Mare that was Creeping Molly's dam
   
1717 roan mare, Betty Garnet  
   
1720 black gelding, Bald Jack; probably acquired from Mr Hotham  
   
1721 bay mare, Proserpine 4.  [1721] bay mare called Proserpine; bred by Sir Michael Warton [& raced by Sir Michael Newton in 1726 & 1727]; got by Tifter, & out of the Old [Scorfield] Mare
   
1721chesnut mare, Tripping Nan  
   
1721 grey horse, Conqueror  
   
1721 brown horse, Chance  
   
  5.  ____ grey mare, called Commoner; bred by Sir Michael Warton; got by a Son of the Old Bay Barb, & out of a [Commoner] Mare, that was out of the Old [Scorfield] Mare
   
  6.  ____ roan mare, bred by Sir Michael Warton; got by a Son of the Old Bay Barb, & out of a bay Lusty Mare
   
  6a.  ____ her full sister [not listed in the Stud in 1731, but had at least 1 foal for Sir Michael Newton]
   
NOTE: One of these mares may have been the [1717] roan mare, Betty Garnet, raced by Mr Newton at York in 1723 (the same race in which Sir Michael Warton's Molly also was an entry); since the broodmares with known ages appear to be listed in order from oldest to youngest, I guess that the full sister [gone by 1731] was Betty Garnet

GSB: gives breeding as by Black-a-top, dam by Acaster Turk
 
   
  7.  ____ dark grey mare called "the Foreign Mare"; gott by the Cyprus Arabian & bred by Mr Pelham
   
NOTE: A mare that was bred to the Lonsdale Bay Arabian (dam of 1740 b f Mr Ann's Sparkler, later Ld Byron's Maidenhead): her pedigree was given as by the Rutland Cyprus Arabian, out of a mare by a Foreign Horse of Charles Pelham's Esq; of Lincolnshire Sir Michael's "Foreign Mare" looks like a sister (or possibly the same as) the mare bred to Ld Lonsdale's Bay Arabian
