Alice Hawthorn was one of the greatest English racemares of all time, winning over fifty races in over seventy starts in five seasons throughout the 1830's and 40's and earning the title "Queen of the Turf." In 1844, she won all but three of her races, including this Newcastle cup, which she won in a canter. She was retired to the breeding shed after 1845, and she produced six notable offspring, including Derby winner Thormanby.
The arms are those of Salvin of Croxdale, Durham with numerous quarterings, for Gerard Salvin, esq. J.P., 1804-1870, married in 1834 Louisa, sister of Thomas Reavely esq., of Kinnersley Castle, co. Hereford.
