In this year Kingcraft sustained a succession of defeats by horses whom he had before easily beaten, viz. at Newmarket Craven, in the Claret Stakes, by Palmerston; at Ascot, in the Triennial, by Nobleman; and, lastly, at Newmarket (Second October), in the Cesarewitch, by Corisande, and in the Cambridgeshire, by Sabinus-the only races for which he started. These reverses quite tarnished the good name lie had previously established. Equally unfortunate was he in 1872. Hlad he retired from the Turf after his half-length defeat in the St. Leger (the severity of which race probably subdued his spirit), he would have ranked deservedly high as a race-horse) It remains to be seen what he will do it b 2 KINGCRA4TE. 3 71
