"During the period between 1900 to the Great War the most prominent winning pointers were Mr. and Mrs. Horner's Lunesdale, T. Steadman's Mallwyd and Dan Davies' Ferndale. "Ch. Coronation" was another pointer well to the fore at this period. She earned undying fame by winning Spratt's Coronation Gold Cup Competition for dogs born in coronation year." -- Edmondson and Robertshaw, 1978


""Lurgan Loyalty" was the sire of "Ch. Coronation", owned by Mr. E. Newbitt, but also destined to join Mr. Sawtell's string, and probably one of the best-known Pointers ever, since she earned undying fame as the winner of the Spratt's Coronation Gold Cup, for dogs born in the Coronation year." -- Lola Macdonald Daly, 1938, The Pointer as a Showdog


""Haisthorpe Shot", a son of "Loyalty" (out of a champion bitch, "Princess May"). -- Lola Macdonald Daly, 1938, The Pointer as a Showdog


""Haisthorpe Shot" has been mentioned as the sire of "Mallwyd Dick", and therefore ancestor of "His Majesty". He also was the sire -- in the same litter as "Mallwyd Dick" -- of "Ch. Steady Tom". "Tom" sired "Ch. Lunesdale Myra" ... One of "Ch. Lunesdale Wagg's" sons was "Lunesdale Ted", and he, mated to "Wagg's" dam, "Druidess" (a lemon and white), threw "Ch. Lunesdale George". "George" was mated to "Myra", and from this further union of champions ... there came "Lune Snowflake", sire of that most celebrated of post-war Pointers, "Lune Prince"." -- Daly, The Pointer as a Show Dog


"The success of "Mark's Rush" on the bench inspired Mr. Bleistein to branch out farther and he soon acquired a kennel of pointers that could not be beaten on the bench by anybody, but it must be remembered these were all purchases and we do not believe up to this time that he has bred one that could hold its own with the really good ones. Among the earlier dogs which Mr. Bleistein acquired were "Baron Faskally", "Thelbridge Boy", both importations and the two American-bred dogs, "Lansdowne Arizona" and "Lansdowne Montana", both of which were very successful. Among the bitches were "Beatrice", "Halberton Judith", "Lansdowne Sensation", and "Coronation". These were all importations, but with the exception of "Coronation" we could not see any extraordinary merit in any of them. "Coronation" came to this country as the greatest England ever produced, and with such a reputation it was natural that she attracted a great amount of attention. She is a very smoothly made one, not just right in expression, but very clean in shoulders, legs and chest and remarkably well made in loin quarters and stifles. A year later her daughter, "Mallwyd Glory" was brought over and she, in our opinion, was more of a pointer than "Coronation", being better in head and having a more useful appearance." -- Hochwalt, 1911

"In the early part of 1909, or rather December, 1908, Ben Lewis again made a trip to England and brought back another draft of pointers for the Bleistein kennels. Among this lot was a bitch called "Melksham First Choice". She also is a daughter of "Coronation" by that great English bench winner, "Lunesdale Wagg". This is decidedly the best that we have yet seen in bitches from the other side among latter day importations and back of her head wich does not quite impress one on account of its houndiness and some expression, little fault can be found with her." -- Hochwalt, 1911


"Perhaps, at the period referred to, George Bleistein was the most enthusiastic of all the exhibitors of pointers, but he never could be induced to take up field trials. His first dog was the very handsome "Mark's Rush", which was shown year after year until (the last time I saw him I think it was 1909 or 1910) he was nearly ten years old and one of the best preserved pointers that one could possibly find at his age. This dog went back on both sides to "Rush of Lad". Among the other good dogs Mr. Bleistein had in his kennels were "Landsdowne Arizona", "Lansdowne Montana", "Thelbridge Boy", and others of almost equal note. In bitches he imported "Coronation", which was considered one of the best of her time. And then there was "Halburton Judith", "Landsdowne Sensation", "Beatrice", and later on "Mallwyd Glory", a daughter of "Coronation". All these, however, were imported, and not bred in the Bleistein Kennels. Another daughter of "Coronation" was brought over from England a little later. This was "Melksham First Choice", by that good English dog "Lunesdale Wagg", and, in my opinion, one of the best pointer bitches which caem over in recent years." -- Hochwalt, 1923


"Born in July, 1900, was "Ch. Lunesdale Wagg", bred and exhibited by Mrs. Horner, and a winner of over 30 certificates. On the age-old principle of mate a Derby winner to an Oaks winner, Mr. Sawtell sent "Coronation" to "Wagg", and in the resultant litter, among others, was "Mallwyd Glory", which, in the hands of Mr. Tom Steadman, made her title. "Glory", mated to "Ferndale Wagg", threw "Mallwyd Harold", sire of "Broom Hill Dan"." -- Daly, The Pointer as a Show Dog
