Thormanby, born in 1857 was a British thoroughbred. He’s by Windhound out of Alice Hawthorn. Thormanby ran 24 times, and won 14 races.
After he won nine races, he won the Espom Derby in 1860, though he failed to come back to his best forum for his 3 year old season, in 1861 he came back to win four races, which includes the Ascot Gold Cup.
He retired in 1861, where he became a stud and a very influential one at that. His grandson is Bend Or, who became a very popular sire.
When it comes to sire and dam lines, Thormanby's mother was Alice Hawthorn, a very impressive mare who won 52 races. He stood for breeding at Croft Stud.
He bred Atlantic, and Charibert. He also produced Rouge Rose, who is the dam of Bend Or.
He died at the age of 18 in 1875, his tail is mounted and fashioned into a whisk which is hung in the hall of Mathew Dawson’s house in Newmarket.
