TWO THOUSAND WINNER
Lambert Simnel, easy winner of the first of the season's classics in England, the second New Two Thousand Guineas;-has given the Fairway horse Pair Trial his first classic victor front his first crop of foals. Fair Trial raced only at three and four years, and he retired with the fine record of six wins, a second, and a third in eight appearances, all in the best class, nis wins including the Queen Anne Stakes and Rous Memorial Stakes at Ascot Lambert Simnel's immediate distaff ancestry, however, is not so notable, and one has to go back six generations to find where this branch of the No. 2 Bruce Lowe family has had any important success. Lambert Simnel was out of Simnel, by Blandford out of Nicest, by Chaucer (son of St. Simon) out of Nice, by Minoru (the late King; Edward Vll's last Derby winner) out of Nevolnice, by St. Serf (son of St. Simon) out of Trevi. by Love Wisely out of Tiber, by St. Angelo out of Pampeluna, by The Palmer. Pampeluna was the fourth dam of the Derby winner Call 803 and of the Ascot Gold Cup winner Foxla'w (sire of Foxbridge and Foxlight. who are standing in the Dominion), and Pampeluna's own fourth dam was Industry, from whom descended Instep (ancestress of Desert Gold, etc.), the Derby winner and great-sire Sainfoin, and Sundridge, another great sire. One may say that the blood was there, but it has remained dormant for generations in Lambert Simnel's particular line. As far as is known the Duke of Westminster's colt was not particularly fancied for the Two Thousand, for which the early favourites were the pair who filled the minor places, Morogoro and Sun Castle.
Otaki. Maori nominations are due on Monday evening.
