Therefore it would have been only reasonable to expect Wallace to do best with mares of St. Simon descent. That, however, does not appear to have been the case. As a matter of fact, most of his important winners returned him his own Golds-brough, Fisherman, and, in a lesser degree, Musket blood. Wallace seems to have had a predilection for Robinson Crusoe mares. From them he sired Emir and the Derby winner F. J. A. In the case of Queen o Scots he got a return of his Musket and Goldsbrough blood through Trenton, the sire of the dam of Queen o Scots. Tortile, the dam of Queen o Scots, was out of a Robinson Crusoe mare, sa in her ens? there was a double-banking of Fisherman, as Goldsbrough was out of a. Fisherman mare. Wilari was out of the Haut Brion mare. Muma. but her grainlam was Etra Weenie, a daughter of Trenton, so in her case there was a return of the Goldsbrough and Fisherman blood through Trentons dam. Wakeful did better with Wallace than anv other sire. To him she bred a smart horse in Blairgour, and probably did best witli Wallace, because she gave him back his Goldsbrough and Fisherman blood, supplemented by Musket blood. Aura, the dam of Aureus, was a daughter of Richmond, which was a grandson of Fisherman. Mari-byrnong. a son of Fisherman, appears in the back lines of the pedigree of Mother Goose, and Angler is prominent in the back lines of Wallalo, a winner of "the Australian Cup. There is no Fisherman. Musket or Goldsbrough blood in the iiedigrees of Mountain King, Charles Stuart Wallace. Isinglass or Trafalgar, but in their case the St. Simon blood is also lacking. Barcaldine mares seem to have been suited to Wallace, as he got Mountain King, Scottish King and Bonnie Cliiel from the Barcaldine mare, Bonnie Rosette. Barcaldine was a horse of Matcheni descent and Fisherman was a Herod horse, and Wallace, of course, belongs to the line of Eclipse. Barcaldine and Fisherman probably were good outerosses from the Eclipse line, and that, in a measure, accounted for Wallace doing well with mares witli Fisherman and Barcaldine blood. Pa-trobas is out of a Simmer mare, but Ms grandam was a daughter of Goldsbrough. The dam of Trafalgar brought .three lines of Stockwell to Wallace.
