Prince Palatine was the champion three-year-old of his generation and Horse of the Year at 4 and 5. Winner of 11 of his 21 starts, he became better and better with age, romping away with the St Leger by 6 lengths. In the next two seasons he went on to win consecutive Ascot Gold Cups, The Eclipse Stakes and the Doncaster Jockey Club and Coronation Cups. Then an unexplained defeat in the Goodwood Cup ended his career - he had only just been bought by Mr Jack Joel for £45,000, at that time a record price.

This photograph shows a neat and tidy Prince Palantine posed at stud (he usually looked rather wild). The horse had an undistinguished stud career in England, France and America, although he did sire Rose Prince, the Cesarewitch winner and a good stallion.
