Description:

From the second small crop of The Tetrarch, who was extremely shy in the breeding shed, Tetratema was champion two-year-old himself. Indeed, many considered him even better than his sire. Tetratema won all of his five starts as a juvenile with consummate ease, and added the 2000 Guineas, two King George Stakes, the King's Stand Stakes and the July Cup to his tally, earning £21,776 for his thirteen victories. The race run before the 2000 Guineas was won by Arch Gift, Tetratema's full older brother. 'He's just showing the young 'un how to do it' was heard as he entered the unsaddling enclosure. A princely looking colt, Tetratema had a charming temperament and beautiful action. He was a success at stud, being Champion in 1929.
