Bailey, Abe (Sir) (1864 - 1940)

Breeder (B),  Owner (O)

Description:

Abe Bailey, who received his knighthood in 1919, was associated with a host of high class horses from the time of his first British winner in 1895, but had just one Classic success, with Lovely Rosa in the Oaks. Other good horses to win in his colours included Dark Ronald (Royal Hunt Cup), Son-in-Law (the great stayer and sire of stayers), Foxlaw and Tiberius (Ascot Gold Cup) and the very speedy Portlaw (Middle Park and Champagne Stakes).

Born in South Africa, Abe Bailey was a great upholder of the British Empire. He took part in the infamous Jameson Raid in 1895 and was sentenced to two years' imprisonment, commuted to a fine. He became an MP in South Africa in 1915.

His trainers included Reginald Day, Harry Cottrill, John Lawson, Hon George Lambton, Atty Persse (Henry Persse) and Ivor Anthony. Colours: Black and gold hoops, gold cap
