Teddy's Sireline in the United States

Error report

Teddy began his stud career in the United States in 1932, at the age of 19. His French classic-winning son Sir Gallahad preceded him in 1926, and so did Sir Gallahad's French-bred full brother Bull Dog in 1931. Gallant Fox, the American Triple Crown winner sired by Sir Gallahad, entered stud the same year. It's a great irony that the line survived most of the 20th century thanks to the third and the least-known son, whom Teddy sired in the United States, no less.

Nowadays, young racing fans know Sir Gallahad mostly as the sire of Gallant Fox, and as the grandsire of another Triple Crown winner Omaha. One of the most common associations, connected to Bull Dog, will be Nijinsky, whose damsire Bull Page was a tail-male descendant of Bull Dog. The other one will be Bull Lea's Triple Crown-winning son Citation. But who knows the name of this third son right out of his head?

Sun Teddy ran third in the Hopeful Stakes at the age of two and second in the Travers Stakes 1936. He entered stud two years after Teddy's death and was active only for six years, but his line led to Damascus, one of the greatest horses in American racing history. Damascus' sons flooded the United States right about the time when the other branches disappeared, and the dynasty kept on two more decades thanks to Private Account. Damascus' great-grandson Skip Away stunned the racing world at the end of the century with the Horse of the Year title, and even though he was a weak sire, his son Skipshot was able to produce a G1 winner from his first crop as of 2018.

Even small hope is hope. And in any case, Teddy's dynasty remains the great part of the American racing history.
