Family 17 - a Although unbeaten at age three, Pantaloon was not an exceptional race horse, but benefitting by receiving excellent mares as a stallion at two important studs of the '30s and '40s -- the Duke of Westminster's Eaton stud in Cheshire and Lord John Scott's Cawston Lodge stud in Warwickshire -- he got three classic winners, a leading sire son in Ireland, and an unremarkable racing son that sent his branch of the sire line forward into the twentieth century.
A noted broodmare sire, his daughters produced three classic winners and good sires sons, including the classic winner Macaroni and Leamingtona multiple-time leading sire in America. An attractive chestnut with unusual coloring, his famous black "blotches" were also perpetuated down through the generations, through some sons and daughters.
His sire, Castrel Castrel's dam was a "mean, crooked-ankled" mare by the big, handsome chestnut Alexanderbred by the Duke of Queensbury, so "weedy" that she was given by the Duke to Dr. Sandiver would often ride her for a bye hour on the Heath, which was to be trodden by such countless winning descendants, on his way to see patients on the race afternoons.
In she dropped her third foal, Castrel, and her second by Buzzardwho was then standing at Newmarket.
Buzzard had won twenty-eight races in six seasons on the turf, mostly at Newmarket, and, having retired from racing inhis career as a stallion was barely underway when the Alexander mare was bred to him. To his cover, she would produce Selim and Rubensalong with Castrel the "wonderful leash of brothers;" Selim sire of six classic winners and Sultan and Rubens sire of the classic-winning fillies Landscape, Pastille and Whizgig did well on the turf and both were later leading sires in England.
She also bred the Epsom Oaks winner, Bronze, by Buzzard, from whom numerous stakes-winners descend in tail-female.
Castrel, standing at 16 hands, was described as a "magnificent chestnut" of "great quality. Castrel, running for Sparrow, won three races and placed second and third once in five starts in two seasons of racing. He was slated to stand at Brampton Park in at 10 guineas, but Sparrow died induring Castrel's second year on the turf, which cut short his race career, and he was sold, along with the rest of Sparrow's small stud soon thereafter.
He was purchased by a character referred to as Reverend Harvey or "Parson Harvey," although he apparently had no connection with the established church. Harvey owned a large racing stable in Pimlico Londonwhich The Druid said was commonly referred to as "that Hospital for Decayed Cracks.
The passion of this extraordinary and eccentric gentleman was 'for the horse and for the horse only' and this he indulged in to an extreme Mainwaring was a typical gentleman sportsman of the day, involved in hunting and a supporter of local racing. It was during his time at The Royals that Castrel got most of his offspring, bred to mares owned mostly by the local gentry-- which included the Legh family, Sir Thomas Stanley at Hooton, Frederic Lumley, Sir Thomas Mostyn, Robert 2nd Earl Grosvenor at Eaton, and other familiar names -- many of whom raced at Midlands courses beyond Cheshire.
Castrel spent over a decade in Cheshire, and while he did not see many mares, and was not among the leading sires -- his best year waswith eight winners of nineteen races -- he did get some good running horses. His best included Castrellaout of Madrigal by Sir Peter Teazlebred at Eaton and sold to Scott Stonehewer for whom she won a number of matches at Newmarket, Newmarket's Trial Stakes and other good races; Sunflowera winner of five races in ; Bustardwho took Chester's Dee Stakes and several other races to age five, and Merlin, winner of two races as a juvenile at York and Doncaster, second in the Doncaster Gold Cup at age four, and winner at age five of the Newmarket's Port and Doncaster's Fitzwilliam Stakes.
In addition to Pantaloon, his sons Bustard and Merlin got good sons, and Bustard's branch of the sire line continued in Australia with his exported grandson, Fisherman At age three her wins included two sweeps at Chester, a sweep at Knutsford, and a dead-heat in a produce stakes two miles at Knutsford.
The next year,she won the Gold Cup at Derby a second time. Heron was later sire of the great Fishermanwinner of over fifty races including the Ascot Gold Cup twicewho was sold to Australia inwhere he was a very successful stallion that had a significant impact on Australian bloodstock breeding.
Merlin was Castrel's best running son, and by far his best sire son in terms of winners and earnings. He had been purchased for two thousand guineas as a two-year-old by Lord Foley.
He broke his leg racing at age five and spent a long time in a sling; the leg eventually healed, but he subsequently was plagued with tremors in all his legs. He was fortunate to go to Thomas Thornhill's Riddlesworth Stud in Norfolk, where Emilius would join him a few years later, and where he got many good mares, but a groom he particularly hated, possibly in association with his confinement, was not so lucky; Merlin savaged him when the fellow entered the stall, and he died two hours after the Riddlesworth staff rescued him.
Merlin also got Col. Wilson's Lamplightera winner of Newmarket's Port Stakes and Craven Stakes, multiple two and four-mile royal plates at Newmarket and elswhere, and the Royal Whip at Newmarket he was later sire of Derby winner Phosphorus ; Goshawk ,winner of the Newmarket stakes and Epsom's Craven Stakes, and numerous Newmarket handicaps, and many other good winners and influential broodmare daughters.
With the exception of Castrellinaall those Castrel offspring were bred while he was in Cheshire. But, in Castrel, age 21, was secured by Edmund Lechmere Charlton, another scion of an ancient family, with estates in Shropshire, Worcestershire and Ludford, where his stud farm was located.
He had been racing horses sinceand was distantly related to the Mainwarings in Cheshire. In a turf writer said of Charlton, "He makes a good fight at Newmarket, and in the country he is formidable He gives a large price for a good horse; that is to say, not for a horse that has won once or twice, but for one which has proved himself a runner at all lengths and at all weights.
Another sporting observer noted, "There are not many better judges than Mr. Charlton, though we fear, like other gentlemen-sportsmen, he has paid rather dearly for his experience," no doubt referring to his purchase of Anticipation a good sire of Shropshire hunters, but not racehorsesBanker sire of Chester Cup winner Halston and a very few other good onesHedley sire of Epsom Derby winner Prince Leopold and not much else and other stallions that did not prove overly-successful in the stud.
At Ludford he was bred to very few mares, and got only a handful of foals, including Castrellina, Silkworm later a stallionJack Mytton's Lechmere, a winner of five races at age three, including the St. Leger Stakes at Oswestry, and Pantaloon.
He died at Ludford in Her sire, Peruvianby Sir Peter Teazledid not race, and stood at the Grosvenor stud at Eaton, near Chester, for a fee of 5 guineas, until he was sold to Russia in As a three-year-old, Idalia ran twice, unplaced; she was distanced at Ludlow in a maiden plate, and fourth in a fifty at Bridgenorth.
She was purchased by William Wood of Glocestershire, and first bred at age four, dropping her first foal unnamed, by Ambo in Idalia bred eleven foals total, two of which died young. Charlton secured her inand first bred her to his stallion Manfred.In Elizabethan times women belonged to their fathers (or their brothers if their father died), and then to their husbands.
Women could not own property of their own. This is one of the reasons. Feuds were not as dramatic as shakespear made them out to be. Dueling was illegal during Elizabethan Times in England and to duel, people would go outside of England.
