1891: Lady Invercauld goes missing in Chicago

“J. H. Davidson’s valuable chestnut filly Lady Invercauld, 3 years old, got away from her attendants at Washington Park Sunday night, slipped through the gates and into the park, and has not been seen since, though persistent search has been made.” (Chicago Daily Tribune, 06/23/1891)

Lady Invercauld, a full sister to the high class colt Burlington, would ultimately be located and go on to have a successful career in the breeding shed, foaling stakes winners Conroy and Duster. Through daughter Floral (GB), Lady Invercauld is the fourth dam of South American stakes winner La Cuarta (ARG).
