2.1.1

Winner OF THE DERBY, 1854.

ENGRAVED BY E, HACKER, FROM A PAINTING BY HARRY HALL.

BY CASTOR,

Andover, bred by Mr. W. Etwall, in 1851, was got by Bay Middleton, dam (sister to Ægis) by Defence, out of Soldier's Joy, by the Colonel-Galatea, by Amadis.

Bay Middleton, bred by Lord Jersey, in 1833, is by Sultan out of Cobweb, by Phantom-her dam Filagree, by Soothsayer-Web by Waxy-Penelope by Trumpator. Bay Middleton, who as a race-horse never was beaten, ranks himself in the records of Derby Winners, where his two sons, the Flying Dutchman and Andover, have become also enrolled. For the last few seasons he has been rather going out of fashion as a stallion, though now the tide is likely enough to turn again in his favour.

Sister to Ægis, bred by Mr. W. Etwall, in 1844, was put to the stud at four years old, throwing a filly to Venison in 1840, Longstock Lass in 1850, Andover in 1851, a filly by Thistlewhipper in 1852, and a brother to Andover this season. The mare never ran but once, without a place in the July Stakes of her year.

Andover is a good hard bay horse, standing barely fifteen hands, two inches high; he has a very blood-like handsome head, strong neck, beautiful shoulders, and great depth of girth ; if anything, he is somewhat slack in his loins, but has strong quarters, short gaskins, with very good knees and hocks-large in the bone and short in the leg. He is altogether a low, lengthy, and very good-looking horse, with a capital even temper to carry out his other accomplishments. His only “mark ” is the white off-side heel.

PERFORMANCES. Andover was sold when a yearling, as it is generally understood, to Messrs. Gully and Padwick, Mr. Etwall having certain contingencies dependent on his future success. The colt went at once into the Danebury stable. In 1853, as Andover, then two years old, in Mr. Gully's colours, ridden by Alfred Day, and carrying 8st. 71b., he ran third for the Ham Stakes at Goodwood, T.Y.C., won by Lord Clifden's Alembic, &st. 10lb. ; Lord Derby's Sortie, 8st. 41b., second. The following were not placed :-Mr. Holland's Eccleston, Sst. 7lb. ; Mr. Kent's Stonehenge, 8st. 71b. ; Mr. Payne's Boer, 8st. 41b. ; Mr. Knowles's Baalbec, 8st. 101b.; and the Duke of Richmond's colt by Van Tromp out of Reel, 8st. 7lb.-5 to 4 on Andover, who was beaten a neck for second, and a length from the winner.

At the same meeting, ridden by Alfred Day, carrying 8st. 7lb., he won the Molecomb Stakes of 50 sovs. each, &c., T.Y.C., beating Mr. W, Cookson's Mincemeat, 8st. 41b. (2), Mr. Knowles's The Caliph, Sst. 71b. (3), Lord Exeter's Amos, 8st. 71b. (4), and Mr. Payne's Strutaway, 8st. 41b.--Byen on Andover, who won by a length and a half.

At Brighton Club, carrying 8st. 9lb., he walked over for a two-yearold Sweepstakes of 50 sovs. each, &c., T.Y.C.-Mr. Thelluson's Donna Sabina, 8st. llb., withdrawing her stake.

At the same meeting, ridden by Alfred Day, and carrying 8st. 111b., he won a Sweepstakes of 10 sovs. each, with 100 added-half a milebeating Mr. Greville’s Quince, 8st. 41b. (2), Duke of Richmond's colt by Van Tromp, out of Reel, Sst. 41b. (3), Mr. Spence's Trump Queen,
