[Gascoigne's Arabian] c 1710c. He appears to have belonged to several generations of the Gascoigne family, namely Sir Thomas (1659-1718), 4th bt, Sir John (1662-1723), 5th bt and Sir Edward (1697-1750), 6th bt. Gascoigne's Foreign Horse earned his place in history as the sire of Daffodil's Dam. Daffodil's Dam (f 1715c), the tapoot mare of Family 20, was owned and bred by Sir Thomas and although she belonged briefly to his brother Sir John, her stud career would have been managed by Sir Edward. She produced Lord Portmore's Daffodil 1725 by Bald Galloway, said to be a high class stayer, and Mr Durham's Favourite (gr f 1728 Royal Ball), who won the Royal Plate at Hambleton in 1733 beating twenty other entries. Family 20 descends from the latter mare, Favourite.
