YOUNG MELBOURNE (Y Melbourne), bred by Lord Glasgow in 1855 from Pantaloon mare Clarissa started just once, at age 2, when he was beaten in a match by Whitewall, but he fell in the race, and that was the end of his career on the turf. However, he became a decent sire. Among his get was GENERAL PEEL, who won the 2,000 Guineas and the Doncaster Cup, and was second in both the Derby and the St. Leger. Young Melbourne`s son, THE EARL, owned by (Lord) Arthur Hastings, was favored for the Derby when scratched, creating a Jockey Club uproar; he was likewise scratched for the St. Leger, but he won the Grand Prix de Paris and the St. James Palace Stakes, among other races. In all, Young Melbourne got over 25 winners.
