Background[edit]
Lath was a bay colt bred by Francis Godolphin, 2nd Earl of Godolphin, and foaled in 1732.[1] His dam was Roxana, a daughter of Bald Galloway. In 1731 she was intended to be covered by Hobgoblin, but he refused her and she was sent to the Godolphin Arabian, who at the time was acting as a teaser stallion to Hobgoblin. The mating produced Lath, who was the Godolphin Arabian’s first foal. Roxana later foaled Roundhead (by Flying Childers) and Cade (also by Godolphin Arabian).[2] After Lath’s success on the racetrack the Godolphin Arabian went on to become a top stallion and was champion sire in 1738, 1745 and 1747. He sired Cade, Regulus and Blank who also went on to become champion sires.[3]
Racing career[edit]
On 23 April 1737 at won a sweepstakes of 1000 guineas at Newmarket, beating the Earl of Portmore’s Squirt and Duke of Devonshire’s John Trott along with seven others. Later in the year he beat Little Partner over four miles for 200 guineas. In October 1738 Squirt, also over four miles, for 300 guineas. He also won a race for £50 at Marlborough. He was described as “one of the best horses that appeared at Newmarket since the time of Childers.”[2]
