Tifto, Major

The joint owner with Lord Silverbridge of the horse “Prime Minister.” Angered because his partner had snubbed him, he lamed the horse just before the Leger and caused Lord Silverbridge a loss of £70,000

"He was a well-made little man, goodlooking for those who like such good looks. He was light-haired and blueeyed, with regular and yet not inexpressive features. But his eyes were small and never tranquil, and rarely capable of looking at the person who was speaking to him. He had small, well-trimmed glossy whiskers, with the best-kept moustache, and the bestkept tuft on his chin which were to be seen anywhere" - The Duke's Children.
