Part 1 - Brood Mares,
with Their Produce.
N. B. - In these early volumes the
name of the person attached to the produces is generally that in which
the horse ran, as the indexes to the early Racing Calendars were
arranged under the heads of the owners.
The following list of the earliest
known mares, very few of which have been printed before as brood mares
(though the substance has been given in the Miscellaneous Pedigrees at
the end of earlier editions), are combined with the imported Eastern
stallions, the source, with hardly any exception, of the whole of the
so-called thorough-bred stock now existant, as may be seen by the direct
descent from them of almost all the principal stallions. Bay Cade's dam
(p. 155), Postmaster's dam (p.188), Clio (p. 240), Flora (p. 86),
Latitat's dam (p. 317), Marotte's dam (p. 215), Miss Layton (p. 133),
Vanessa (p. 217), and Expectation (on account of doubt), p. 265, in the
second alphabet, and Miner's dam, see p. 97 and add., are also the the
earliest recorded mares of their strains.
