AN UNFASHIONABLE DERBY

WINNER

of this year's Derby winner,', Blandford, did'not win any of the classic races in England, but. he'was by general! consent regarded as the best" three-year-old of his year. • He easily won the only two races m which'he ran at that age, one of .them;,being, the Princess of Wale's Stakes, at Newmarket/; He: .was. bred at we .-National Stud in Ireland,- and was sold for only 730 guineas as a yearling. Now he is-at the stud in his native country, .and was full for his first three seasons at.£l49. .Now; of course, his fee will be raised probably to the . £ 400 'mark* Trigo is hot his only good winner this season, as his progeny have been doing particularly well this season. - Their great' virtue-is that they are. very: solid horses who'stand racing,,and, are .great fighters, Blanche, the.idam of, Blandford, was a half-sister to. Cherry Lass, a : good filly raced ■ by Lord . Wavertree some, years ago. She won the One Thousand Guineas and Oaks and other races worth .over £15,000 Black Arrow was also a, half-brother, to Blanche and he was a brilliant, but erratic, performer. . It was. not until after his death that the reason for his mad behaviour oh the racecourse' was discovered. -. He had some, internal^ trouble, which ultimately tm i?' ; * BIa?k Gherry. the granddam of Blandford, was--a . half-sister to Bay Konald, a winner of the City aiid Subur°'m- .'.flej however, is best remembered as the sire of Dark Ronald and Bayardo two great sires. Swynfoi-d; the sire of Blandlord, was one ■of the most Buceessful of Jinglislr sires of. recent times, arid his' male line lookß like, continuing,-as not only is Blandford doing well, but so. is the Derby winner Sansovmo, who is also by Swynford.- /The success of Bradford will be gratifying, to several Australian stud masters, who have'sons O f Swynford at the stud. One of them 4s Bold and Bad.' : ON THE DAM'S SIDE. • Tl{ e-d?-m Pf Trigo is anything but fashionably bred. Her sire, Farasi, was sold for only 35 .guineas as a yearling, and was so little thought of as a sire in Ireland that he was standing for years at a fee of-five guineas. He was a three-quarter to the Cambridgeshire. winner Land League;, who in all won 32:' races. Fairyland^ the third dam of Trigb,! was a sister foGlenesky^a useful racehorse -and sire, and a half-sister to Flying. Orb, one of the speedy sons of Orby, who has done fairly well as a'sire. Stella, "the.dam of Fairyland, • was - a half-sister to Gipsy, who. produced aremarkable stayer in Kilsallaghan; who won the Goodwood, Doncaster, and Chester Cups, three very long races. Laelia, the ninth dam of Trigo was a. daughter of Cotillion, Whose halfsisters Constance and . Katherine bred Tarantella (One Thousand Guineas) and Catherine Hayes (Oaks).. Catherine: Hayes was 'the dam of Belladrum, 'who sired the dam .of ■Barcaldme.. Another distinguished .member'; of this- branch of the No. 22 I 81? '"ras gladiator,:whose dam was- a ;half-sister to .Cotillion. . .That: is about the sum.total of the claim of this family to distinction.; Trigo is, the.second member of the No. 22 family to win the Derby in recent, years, as Manna, a member of the tribe, ivas successfulin 1925. ' One has to trace" pack to Canary Bird, bred in 1806, to find a common-ancestor; • ; ; .
