Day Rose, Charles (Sir) (1847 - 1913)

Breeder (B),  Owner (O)


Charles (later Sir Charles) Day Rose was a member of the Jockey Club and the National Hunt Committee. He admired 'stayers' and donated the sum of £3,000 to the Jockey Club in 1890 for the encouragement of long distance races. One of his best horses was Ravensbury, foaled in the same year as Triple Crown winner Isinglass. Sir Charles' colt was runner-up in the Guineas, Derby and St Leger and also beaten by a controversial 'whisker' in the Grand Prix de Paris.

For many years, Charles Day Rose was the Liberal and Free Trade member of Parliament for the Newmarket Division of Cambridgeshire (Newmarket is now in Suffolk).
