Sire Line



Lottery [ex-Tinker] bbr c 1820 (Tramp - Mandane, by Pot8os). Sire Line Eclipse. Family 11-g.

Bred in Yorkshire by Richard Watt, of Bishop Burton near Beverley, he was a half brother to the Oaks winner Manuella (b f 1809 Dick Andrews), to the St Leger winner Altisidora (ch f 1810 Dick Andrews) and to the Chester Cup winner Brutandorf (b c 1821 Blacklock). Considered by contemporaneous authorities to be the best of Tramp's sons he was described as a "very bloodlike horse" standing sixteen hands, a "magnificent" creature with speed, stamina and courage. He was also said to have an odd, erratic temperment.

In an apparently unsuccessful regime designed to ameliorate his opinions, he was regularly galloped in a "fallow field". Mr Watt was said to have become so apprehensive of him doing serious damage that he wanted to have him shot but was persuaded to sell instead. Mr Whittaker of Dowthorpe Hall purchased him for 450 guineas and changed his name to Lottery. He ran for three years in Mr Whittaker's colours, winning a number of good races although it was generally thought he could have won more had he so decided and had he been more than half trained. It was said that his faults were "aggravated by neglect and mismanagement; otherwise he would have been one of the most brilliant performers on the British turf".

In the stud he got a St Leger winner, Chorister (b c 1828), and two Manchester Cup winners, Red Rover (br c 1831) and The Carpenter (b c 1833), however, he is proabably better known as the sire of Sheet Anchor (bbl c 1832). Although Mr Whittaker was reputed to have refused 3000 guineas for him at one time, he was subsequently purchased by the French Government and sent to France in 1834.
