No Australian-bred brood mare being returned as such for the first time will be considered for inclusion in the Australian Stud Book unless she has been entered previously as produce under her dam and a name has been registered for her.

Any horse or mare may be considered as eligible to apply for admission to the Australian Stud Book if it has been recorded as a foal in a recognised Stud Book and it can be proved:

1.That it can be traced without flaw on both sire's and dam's side of its pedigree to horses or mares already accepted for the General Stud Book, to certain approved sires, or to the following mares or tap-roots which have not been satisfactorily traced into the General Stud Book:

Adeline by Kingston [C6]
Beatrice by Pitsford [C24]
Belhari by Indian Warrior [C11]
Betty by Hector [C10]
Black Swan by Yattendon [C7]
Contessa by Gemma di Vergy [C12]
Cutty Sark (imp) [C3]
Dinah by Gratis [C5]
Empress by Tamerlane [C13]
Gipsy by Rous' Emigrant [C4]
Heris by Gemma di Vergy [C14]
Josephine by Boiardo [C19]
Lilla by New Chum [C8]
Myrtle by Gemma di Vergy [C15]
Sappho by Marquis [C1]
Steeltrap Mare by Steeltrap [C16]
Sylph by Impudence (V) [C21]
Yatterina by Yattendon [C2]
Young English Mare by Bay Camerton [C9]


2. to have eight (8) crosses of pure blood, to trace back for at least a century and to show such performances of its immediate family on the turf as to warrant the belief in the purity of its blood.

Keeper's Note, --- Cutty Sark (imp) though necessarily included above is somewhat differently situated from the eighteen mares grouped with her. She was imported from England in 1826, with Spaewife, and was for many years allotted the traceable pedigree afterwards shown to be Spaewife's see Vol. VII, page 489. Contessa, Empress and Myrtle, abovenamed, will be found mentioned in Mr W.H.E. Wanklyn's Australasian Racehorse under Marvelette, Kerosene and Cariboo respectively.
