Isinglass (trained at Newmarket by J. Jewitt;) was bred by hi» owner, Mr H. M'Calmont, and was unbeaten for the three races in whioh h« took part as a two-year-old. He first appeared at the Newmarket Second Spring meeting, where he won a Maiden PJate from 10 opponents, and at Ascot easily accounted for the New Stakes, being followed home by Fealar and R^vensbury, with seven others behind the trio The colt's last essay that year wa3 in the Middle Park Plate, and though several of the competitors claimed market preference the son. of Isonomy had no difficulty in fiui-hing a lengfeh anfl a-half in front of Knvenfbury, with Le Nicham third and Raeburn fourth. Isinglass reappeared in 1893 in the Two Thousand Guineas, in which he cleverly landed tho slight odda betted on him by .tbree-parts of a length from Ravensbury, with Raeburn third and seven others swelling the field. A fortnight afterwards he was brought out for the Newmaiket Stakes, and having still more easily placed that event to the credit of his owner, continued his winning career in the Derby, for ■which he was followed home by Rawi sbury and Raeburn. After th ; s success he fulfilled no intermediate engagements in order to h*ve an uninterrupted preparation for the St. Ltger, which, with odds of 95 to 40 batted on him, he had no difficulty in winning, Ravensbury once more following him home and La Nicbam filling third place.* - He came out again at the •Manchester September meeting, where he met with defeat for the first time in tbe valuable Lancashire Plate in attempting to give 101b to Rjieburn, who secured the verdict by a length, - with La Flecbe third and Lady Caroline the other competitor.
