  1. Thanks for visiting. Dunno, FJK, who the chestnut with puffy knee and hocks in the next parish is, but the horse in photo with Tesio begins with an A, and I will now have to find out! Thanks!

  2. The horse in the photo with Tesio is Apelle.

    “Tesio wanted to breed Nogara to Fairway, a tall, rangy horse who had won England’s classic St. Leger for Lord Derby in 1929. However, “the ignorant and arrogant Captain Paine [ Derby’s stud manager], who regarded Tesio as a contemptible little foreigner, turned him down point blank. In dismay Tesio booked a nomination to Fairway’s brother, Pharos.” Although Tesio didn’t believe that Pharos would be as good a cross for Nogara as Fairway, the resultant foal would be Nearco.”

  3. I am in search of stud book kept by tesio o the mares prchased, matings, and foals.

    or a public record of all such, or a verisimilitude of these activities. the object, to study premises infered, if any, and discoveries implicit, if any.

    Many thanks,
