Excerpt from American Turf Register and Sporting Magazine, Vol. 4 Until the season just passed, he had been absent for three years from the state of Virginia, standing in the west; where his get, from mares of good blood, are represented to be very promising; for one of them, out of the dam of Sally Hope, and another, the produce of the dam of Sally McGee, it is stated that very large offers have been refused. It is fair to state further in his behalf, that amongst the causes which have prevented his attaining that height of celebrity to which his blood, figure, and powers would have elevated him, is the fact of his having passed much of his time in Louisa, Orange, Madison, Culpepper, Spotsylvania, and Fauquier counties, where there were few thoroughbred mares, and scarcely one regular racing establishment. On the score of his family, few can sustain higher claims to distinction. One-half of his blood being derived from Sir Archy himself, it will be admitted there is no alloy there. The other branch comes through his dam by the imported Druid; his g. grandam by Americus, his g. g. grandam by the imported Old Janus, his g. g. g. grandam also by Old Janus, his g. g. g. g. grandam by the imported horse Moor's Partner, his g. g. g. g. g. grandam by the imported horse Old Jolly Roger, out of the imported mare Kitty Fisher. Carolinian was bred by Major Philip Claiborne, of Setwood, in Brunswick county, Virginia, and was foaled 28th of May, 1815. In confirmation of his blood, his owners have exhibited a certificate from P. N. Edgar, Esq. from which the following is extracted. Mr. E. it is known has made pedigrees his assiduous study for years, in the compilation of his American Stud Book. "I do certify, that I have traced the pedigree of the celebrated racehorse Carolinian on the General Stud Book of England, and pronounce the aforesaid horse to be thoroughbred, and the whole family whence he has descended I consider to be of as pure blood as any horse either in this country, or in England. Carolinian's blood can be traced in the above book as far back as the following horses in England: - Place's White Turk, imported by Mr. Place, stud-keeper to Oliver Cromwell, in the year 1652, when he was protector. The Lyster or Straddling Turk, 1653. Dodsworth's dam, 1546." Of the performances of Carolinian the account before us is not full, but it authorizes the statement, that he commenced his career at Warrenton, in the autumn of 1818, then three years old, beating Mr. Plumer's mare, by Sir Archy. At Drummondsburgh he won the great postsake, and the high distinction of beating the afterwards so much renowned Virginian. In the race he also beat Mr. Worsham's Quickstep.
