Description:

It was not Pommern's fault that his Classic season co-incided with the second year of the Great War, but even so, appreciation of his Triple Crown success was distinctly muted. Perhaps he was the best of a moderate bunch. Pommern won 7 of his 10 starts from 2 - 4 years including the Derby substitute race at Newmarket in a very fast time. He was not a great success at stud but did sire Adam's Apple, winner of the 2000 Guineas and one other race in his lifetime, but soon forgotten.
