Dates & jockeys of important wins:

Derby
1913  Edwin Piper

Description:

Aboyeur was the winner of the sensational Derby of 1913, in which the first past the post Craganour was disqualified and the King's runner, Anmer, was brought down at Tattenham Corner by a suffragette. Aboyeur, winner of just one of his juvenile starts, was a 100/1 outsider for the Derby. He was a queer tempered customer to train, galloping loose on the downs on more than one occasion. His maternal grandsire Morion had been an absolute savage.

Aboyeur never won again after the Derby and was sold to Russia, where he disappeared during the Revolution.
