In 1868, the year that Archibald Philip Primrose became Earl of Rosebery, he acquired a two-year old racehorse and, as a result, was sent down from Oxford. He was elected to the Jockey Club in 1870 and married Hannah, daughter of Baron Meyer de Rothschild, thus acquiring the Mentmore Stud near Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire. Despite numerous Classic successes, Lord Rosebery apparently did not enjoy going racing and was far more interested in breeding.
