de Rothschild, Anthony Gustave (1887 - 1961)

Breeder (B),  Owner (O)

Associated Places:  Palace House, Newmarket,Southcourt Stud, Beds

Description:

Anthony de Rothschild's wish that 'Palace House at Newmarket be used by the Royal Family when they attended the races' may not have been realised, but the house has been lovingly restored and is well worth a visit in Newmarket.

Son of Leopold de Rothschild, the owner/breeder of St Frusquin and St Amant, Anthony de Rothschild inherited his father's horses and breeding interests including his Southcourt Stud. He won the 1000 Guineas with the outsider Pillion and the Grand Prix de Paris with Galloper Light. Midstream, who ran in Mahmoud's Derby, became a leading sire in Australia.

Important successes:
