St. Blaise started six times as a two-year-old, and scored four wins. At the Bibury Club Meeting, in June he won the Biennial Stakes of £385 in a field of five, and two days later, at Stockbridge, after walking over the Troy Stakes of £475, ran second to Macheath in the Hustborne Stakes, who beat him by four lengths. He next sported silk at Doncaster, and in the Molecombe Stakes of £1450, ran a dead • heat with Elzevir, to whom St. Blaise was conceding 71bs. He was unplaced in the Dewhurst Plate, won by Ladislas, with Goldfield and Acrostic filling the other places, but the Derby winner was conceding from 31b to fib to each of these. On the next day he won the Troy Stakes of £575, in an indifferent field of five. Cannon usually rode him, but on one occasion he was steered by Loates. Highland Chief also started six times as a two-year old, but only scored twice. He was defeated by Songless in the Stud Produce Stakes at Newmarket, but he had ten horses behind him, and the winner was favored with a 71b allowance. At the Newmarket July Meeting won the Exter Stakes of £600, beating Britomortis and five others. Ran third to Rookery and Adriana in the Triennial Stakes at the Newmarket first October, and a fortnight later ran Macheat to a half length in the Middle Park Plate, with fifteen first class horses behind him. At the Houghton Meeting he ran second to Keir in the Houghton Stakes, conceding him 61b. Galliard only started three times as a two-year-old winning the Chesterfield Stakes £1570 in the Newmarket July Meeting, and the Prince of Wales's Stakes (£1000) at York, and ran unplaced in the Doncaster Champagne Stakes, the placed horses being Hauteur, Macheath, and Chislehurst. So far as we are aware, he has only started once as a three-year-old, when he won the Two Thousand Guineas Stakes at Newmarket.
