Catalogue Note

Don John, winner of the Doncaster St. Leger in 1838, was by Tramp or Waverley out of Mars by Cosmos bred by Mr. Garforth of Wigginthorpe, Yorkshire and sold as a foal to Mr. Ridsdale.  He was subsequently purchased at the sale of his stud by the Earl of Chesterfield and went on to win the Two Year Old Stakes at York, the Champagne Stakes at Doncaster and the Claret Stakes at Heaton Park all in 1837.  He was riden by the jockey William Scott for his 1838 win at the St. Leger, who himself won that prestigiuos race nine times in all.
