'BLANDFORD Races commenced on Tuesday, the 8th instant [8 August 1815], when the Dorsetshire Gold Cup [the silver-gilt cup and cover in this lot], by subscribers of ten guineas each, for all ages, was won by Mr. Radclyffe's Midnight, beating Mr. Farquharson's b. f. by Eagle. . . The course was well attended, and the sport on both days excellent. – The company at the balls was more numerous than for many years past, and the ball room was graced by the fashion and beauty of the neighbouring counties, as well as by those of the county of Dorset.' (The Sporting Magazine, London, 1815, pp. 231-232)
