Duke of Rutland's Spot

Spot must have been the most popular name for race horses in the early days of the breed. Fourteen of them appear in the first volume of the English stud book and many more are recorded in contemporaneous racing calendars. Since our ancestors were not noted for their subtlety or finesse in choosing names for their steeds it may be reasonable to wonder whether these names were perhaps descriptive of their bearers. Alas, none were so informatively recorded as the American filly Spot "with a spot on her side" [ASB 2:325].

Whilst engaged in their endeavour to preserve the lineage of the runners of their day the early pedigree collectors were acutely aware that errors would inevitably occur in any task of this magnitude. The inherent confusion in the records of so many Spots with their changes of ownership and location was compounded in the case of the two Hutton's Spots by changes of both name and ownership of the dam of one of them. And so despite the labour of the collectors one of these Spots lost his place in history. The earlier Hutton's Spot (1728) is traditionally accorded celebrity as the sire of Sister to Stripling, the taproot mare of Family 16, along with other worthy offspring, whereas the credit is due to the later Hutton's Spot (1735). Please see Highflyer who has untangled their story.

We decided to present our collection of Spots, discovered in our search for the identity of the Duke of Rutland's Spot whose portrait appears at the top of the page, as an example of the complexities facing stud book compilers and pedigree researchers. (We haven't as yet identified the Duke of Rutland's Spot, although he may have been Mr Panton's Spot who ran at Newmarket in 1725).
