Vol. 23 registry. b/b John Madden, Hamburg Place, KY MARGARET PARRISH t,T2:06¼ [1908-1939]
A foal of 1908 by Vice Commodore out of Lady Leyburn, she was a fast performer on the track, but gained immortality as a broodmare. One of her first offspring was Arion Guy, 1:59½. Other famous foals included Margaret Arion, the dam of Protector, The Marchioness, 1:59¼, winner of 1932 Hambletonian and Kentucky Futurity, and Princess Peg, 2:00¾, who took the 1934 Kentucky Futurity. Margaret Parrish\'s most remarkable achievement, however, was the foaling of Margaret Castleton, 1:59.2 at age twenty-six. There is no other case in horse breeding history of a mare so old producing a champion. Margaret Parrish died at Walnut Hall Farm in 1939.
