COXCOMB. A chestnut horse, foaled 1771, bred by Lord Ossory, was got by Otho, dam (the dam of Fabius) by Babraham; grandam Chiddy by the Hampton Court Childers; greatgrandam Bald Charlotte by Old Royal, Castaway, Brimmer.
This first-rate horse started many times, but was beat once only: he ran second to Postmaster by Herod, at the Newmarket first October Meeting, 1774, for the Perram plate, beating Salopian and Hephestion, both by Marske; and twelve others. In the first Spring Meeting, 1776, he paid forfeit to Lord Abingdon's Pretender, to whom he was to have allowed 71b. over B. C.
Coxcomb was a stallion at Ampthill Park,Bedfordshire, in 1778 and 1779, at ten guineas; from 1780 to 1783, inclusive, at five guineas ; in 1784 and 1785, Coxcomb covered in the neighbourhood of Northallerton, Yorkshire, at three guineas. Coxcomb was frequently hunted.
