Prignitz "was foaled in Germany, but is of pure English .blood, by Galtee More Princess Patti, by Royal Hamilton. After racing in Germany she was sent to England and became the property of II. ile la Rue, who passed her on to Count Szapary, and, with a filly-foal by Cicero and bred to Mintagon. she went to Hungary in 1911. Taking the krone at its normal value of twenty-one cents, this youngster by Adam fetched in round figures 7,150, while the average for the whole band of yearlings panned out at upward of ,500. Prignitz was fouled in 1907, and should therefore be in her prime.
