Kincsem (Hun)

Kincsem was bred in the Gestut Tapioszentmarton, owned by Herr Ernst v. Blaskovitch, and foaled in Hungary. She was the unbeaten winner of fifty-four races from two to five, in five different countries. A grand racehorse she "galloped with her head close to the ground," and was said to often prefer to munch grass until her opponents were well away. Her victories included the Magyar One and Two Thousand Guines Stakes, Oaks Stakes and St. Leger Stakes in Hungary, the Preis der Jockey Club and the Emperor's Prize in Austria, the Grosser Preis von Baden-Baden (three times) and the Grosser Preis von Hanover in Germany, the Grand Prix de Deauville in France, and the Goodwood Cup in England. She was a Hungarian national treasure, and the toast of Europe.

She had five foals: Budagyongye, Ollyan-Nincs, Talpra Magyar, Kincs-Or and Kincs. Her unraced daughter Kincs (ch.f. 1887 x Doncaster) was the dam of Napfeny (b.f. 1896 x Dunure), winner of the Magyar Kancadij; she in turn the dam of Miczi (b.f. 1910 x Mindig), winner of the Magyar Kancadij, Egyesitett Nemzeti es Hazafi dij, Osterreichisches Stutenpreis, Queen Elizabeth Prize and the King's Prize. Kincsem's daughter Budagyongye (b.f. 1882 x Buccaneer) won the Deutsches Derby and in the stud foaled two exceptional fillies, Viglany (ch.f. 1900 x Bona Vista) and Disco (ch.f. 1906 x Floriform). Another daughter Ollyan-Nincs (b.f. 1883 x Buccaneer) won the Magyer St. Leger and produced a host of winning descendants in Eastern Europe. Her son Talpra Magyar (b.c. 1885 x Buccaneer) never raced but in the stud he sired Tokio (b.c. 1892) who won the Grosser Preis von Baden, Grosser Preis von Nordrhein-Westfalen, Jubilaums Preis three times, Oesterreichisches Derby, Trial Stakes, Alagi dij and the Magyar St. Leger. Kincs-Or (ch.c. 1886 x Doncaster) died before starting in the German Derby. Ulbrich notes that despite the ravages of many wars which depleted her descendents, her bloodlines are still flourishing in Europe with Waldcanter (ch.c. 1956) and his brother Wicht (ch.c. 1957) both considered the best of their generations.

Kincsem died of colic following the birth of Kincs at age thirteen. She belongs to the Partner Mare branch, of Bruce Lowe's Family Number 4.
