Gainsborough (1915-1945) was a British bred Thoroughbred racehorse who won the English Triple Crown in 1918 and became a superior sire.


Owned and bred by Lady James Douglas (1854-1941), she named him for the town of Gainsborough, Lincolnshire because she liked how it sounded. Gainsborough was sired by Bayardo, who also sired the 1917 Triple Crown winner Gay Crusader, and was out of Rosedrop who won the 1910 Epsom Oaks and £9,809. Gainsborough's damsire was St. Frusquin who won 11 races including the 1896 2,000 Guineas, and £33,960. Galopin was duplicated in the third and fourth generations of Gainsborough’s pedigree. He was not a big horse, but possessed very good conformation and a kind temperament. Gainsborough was quite mature when he was offered at the yearling sales, but did not reach the reserve that was placed on his price.Ahnert, Rainer L.
