Gusztav, 5th Prince Batthyany-Strattmann was a Hungarian nobleman who bred horses in England and was commonly known as Count Gustavus Batthyany. In 1843 he established his own stud and was elected to the Jockey Club in 1859. He hired trainer John Dawson to condition his horses at Newmarket and had a long and successful career on the turf. In 1875 his horse Galopin won The Derby and went on to be the Leading sire in Great Britain and Ireland. Count Batthyany's horse Suburban won the Handicap Plate at Newmarket, the Third-Class Wokingham Stakes at Ascot, the Lincolnshire Handicap, the Stand Handicap and the Warwickshire Handicap. Count Batthyany commissioned Harry Hall to immortalize Suburban on canvas with Tom Challoner up wearing his new racing colors. Harry Hall painted another portrait for the Count as well, Prince Plausible with George Fordham up, dated 1864.
