Description:

Robert Peck, himself the father of two able trainers Charles Peck and Percy, was born in Malton, Yorkshire and took up training as a young man. In addition to his three Classic horses, Peck reckoned that the unbeaten Barcaldine, who won all his twelve races in a hack canter, to be the best that he ever saw or trained. After retiring from the trainers' ranks, Robert Peck raced as an owner. His Hackness won the 1882 Cambridgeshire and The Bard was unbeaten in 16 juvenile races and was runner up to Ormonde in the Derby.
