  Family 8: Bustler Mare

It appears there are some errors that have been perpetuated via the General Stud Book regarding this family, clarified with the discovery of Cuthbert Routh's Stud-Book, 1716 - 1752, which was published in part by C.M. Prior [Early Records of the Thoroughbred Horse]. Routh, scion of a long-established family in North Riding, Yorkshire, purchased the Dinsdale estate (on the border of County Durham) of Rowland Place, stud-master to Oliver Cromwell, in 1719. Routh married Judith, the daughter of Sir Mark Milbanke of Halnaby (Yorkshire, North Riding), an important early breeder of thoroughbreds. In later life Routh moved his stud to Snape, an ancient seat of his family, and close to Halnaby, in Yorkshire.

Our knowledge of the Bustler mare, until the discovery of the Routh material, depended on the entry of her great-great-granddaughter, the Coneyskins Mare, "Bred by Mr Hutton, her dam by Hutton's Grey Barb - Hutton's Royal Colt - Byerly Turk - Bustler (son of The Helmsley Turk)." However, Routh's stud book has provided additional information on this mare. His horse, Routh's Surley (gr.c. 1720), was purchased from Mr. Hutton in April of 1725. When purchased, he noted the colt's pedigree: "gott by [Hutton's] Surley, which Horse was gott by his Gray Barb, his dam by ye Royall Colt, her dam by Byrley Turk, her dam by Bustler, her dam by a Barb, and her dam by Bay Dodsworth. In addition to showing that Hutton's Surley was own brother to the dam of the Coneyskins mare, contradicting the information shown in the GSB (Vol. I, page 5), it extends the Bustler mare's line back two further generations, to a daughter of Bay Dodsworth. Bay Dodsworth was probably the horse usually referred to as Dodsworth, a "Natural Barb" son of one of the Royal Mares who stood at Hampton Court [See the Hutton-Darcy connection below]. Surley and probably his sister Bowes, as shown in the GSB, both considered part of Family 2 (which see), are actually part of Family 8.

However, it is still the Coneyskins mare, "Bred by Mr Hutton, her dam by Hutton's Grey Barb - Hutton's Royal Colt - Byerly Turk - Bustler (son of The Helmsley Turk)," to whom we must turn for progeny information in the GSB. She has four foals listed, all fillies, all owned by Mr. Hutton.

The first was Northern Nancy, a filly by (Wood's) Counsellor whom the GSB lists as producing produced two foals of note, Lord Weymouth's Jenny-come-tye-me (ch.f. 1729) by Bartlett's Childers, and Mr. Routh's Crab (gr.c. 1736) by Crab. However, Cuthbert Routh's stud book, kept between 1716 and 1752, indicates James Weatherby (compiler of the GSB) was erroneous in the compilation of information on this filly's produce. She is only entered once in the GSB, under her dam, and subsequently listed erroneously as an ancestress of the two aforementioned important foals in their progeny's pedigrees. The true dam of Jenny-Come-Tye-Me was a mare named Northern Nanny (not Nancy), in Routh's stud (along with her daughter, Young Nanny), for many years, and Routh kept Jenny-Come-Tye-Me, her chestnut filly born in 1729, long enough for her to win 100 guineas at Hambleton in 1734, and to be subsequently sold to Lord Portmore in October of 1734. Routh gave Northern Nanny's (1717) pedigree as "Got by Highland Laddy, her dam by the Byrley Turk." Northern Nanny also foaled a chesnut filly named Jilt in 1726, by Mr. Hutton's "little white horse," a.k.a. Hutton's White Turk, who was the dam of Golden Ball; this horse's pedigree is in Vol. 1 of the GSB, p.380, and confirms Routh's description of Northern Nanny's pedigree. It is unknown which daughter of the Byerley Turk Northern Nanny traces to, although it's possible she was the mare listed in the GSB as by the Selaby Turk, who appears to have been in Hutton's possession, and who traces back to the Burton Barb Mare (Family 2).

Further, Routh's Crab, the grey colt of 1736, was not out of Northern Nancy, as Routh's stud book makes clear. That colt, by the celebrated Crab, was out of Routh's mare "Crop," a Sister to Sampson "Given to me by Sir R. Milbanke," in the spring of 1735. She was by Greyhound, of a Curwen Barb mare (GSB, Vol.1, p.73), who goes back to the Brimmer mare.

The next filly listed under the Coneyskins mare was a sister to Northern Nancy, and dam herself of Mr. Bertie's Ramper (gr.c. 1736) by Crab. The next was a mare by Fox Cub, retained by Mr. Hutton and dam of a filly by Bay Bolton. The fourth and last was a filly by Lister's Squirrel, also apparently retained by Hutton as her only foal of record is a filly by Hutton's Blacklegs, known as The Ruby Mare, who became the dam of Marske (sire of Eclipse). Marske was also bred by Hutton, indicating that this family stayed within the same stud for numerous productive generations.

There may have also been a fifth daughter of the Coneyskins mare, a filly by Bay Bolton, who appears later in the GSB in the entry for a mare by Mixbury "her dam by the Mulso Turk, otherwise Hutton's Bay Barb - Bay Bolton - Coneyskins - Grey Barb - Royal Colt - Byerly Turk-Bustler." It's also possible that this entry has accidentally overlooked a generation, neglecting to include the Fox Cub mare, daughter of the Coneyskins mare and dam herself of a filly by Bay Bolton.

What can be guessed about the founder of this family, the Bustler mare, sometimes referred to as Hutton's Bustler mare, is that she probably belonged to John Hutton II, master of the manor of Marske outside of Richmond in Northern Yorkshire. Hutton was a cousin of James D'Arcy of the nearby famous Sedbury Stud, and in fact, his son, John Hutton III married D'Arcy's daughter, Elizabeth.

The first real evidence of Hutton breeding in the Bustler mare's family begins with her daughter, a Byerley Turk mare being bred to Hutton's Royal Colt. This stallion was, like Bustler, a son of the Helmsley Turk out of a Royal Sedbury Mare (D'Arcy breeding), which the GSB notes "was bred by Sir William Ramsden and sold to Mr [John II] Hutton in 1700." The next mare in line was sired by Hutton's Grey Barb, which the GSB explains "was given by King William to Mr [John II] Hutton in 1700." This mare produced a daughter by Coneyskins (gr.c. by the Lister Turk - mare by Jigg). Since Jigg was by the Byerley Turk, she was therefore linebred to the Byerley Turk, also sire of her third dam. Coneyskins was also a Hutton stallion, being bred by the Duke of Rutland and sold to Hutton in 1720. Since both Coneyskins and Hutton's Grey Barb were grey, it's very likely that this Coneyskins daughter was also a grey.

Bold Ruler dk.b.c. 1954
(Nasrullah - Miss Disco)
Game champion sprinter won 23 of his 33 races from ages 2 to 4, including Vosburgh Stakes, Wood Memorial Stakes and Bahamas Stakes.

The result was American Triple Crown winner Whirlaway. Of her other foals, six were winners, including Feudal Lord winner of 28 races and Reaping Reward winner of seven, including the Jockey Club Stakes and the Latonia Derby. Her daughters, mostly unraced or lightly raced, included Panoramic, Golden Melody, Lost Horizon, King's Choice, all successful producers, and Whirl Right, fourth dam of Conquistador Cielo.

Havresac II br.c. 1915
(Rabelais - Hors Concours)
"As ugly as a Haversac II," was a common sentiment regarding his looks; still, this in-bred (to St. Simon) colt won 9 of h is 14 races in Italy, including the Premio Ambrosiano. As a Leading Sire in Italy 11 times, and also leading sire of broodmares, he significantly raised the quality of Italian bloodstock, primarily through his son, the unbeaten Cavaliere d'Arpino (grandsire of Ribot and Tenerani), and his daughter, the top miler, Nogara, who was the dam of Nearco. Also sire of Italian Derby winners Manistee, Lui and Dervio, and four Italian Oaks winners.

John P. Grier ch.c. 1917
(Whisk Broom II - Wonder)
Caused momentary concern in the last furlong of the 1920 Dwyer Stakes, when he briefly headed his nemesis, Man O' War, and drove the latter to an American record for 9 furlongs.

Successful sire of 27 stakes winners from 264 foals, his offspring included Boojum, Jack High, El Chico, and Miyako.

La Sega br.f. 1959
(Tantieme - La Danse)
Big, lop-eared filly was out of a mare that won three sprint races in Canada.

Marske br.c. 1750
(Squirt - The Ruby Mare)
Although he won the Jockey Club Plate in 1754, beating some horses, generally he was not a good performer on the turf. However, at stud he gained immortality by siring Eclipse, and after Eclipse's wins became the most popular sire in England. Among his 154 winners in 22 years of service were Young Marske, Sharke, Masquerade, Leviathan, Hephastion, Desdemona, and many other famous early race horses.

My Prince b.c. 1911
(Marcovil - Salvaich)
Won the Tudor Stakes and Gordon Stakes, among others, but his importance derives from his success in the stud as probably the most pre-eminent sire ever of top jumpers, among them Grand National Stakes winners Gregalach and Royal Mail, and Cheltenham Gold Cup winners Easter Hero and Prince Regent.

Nijinsky II b.c. 1967
(Northern Dancer - Flaming Page)
