""King Cyrano" ... was a white-and-lemon dog, out of "Kate Kent", by "King of Kent", out of "Bang's Mollie". He was a prominent winner in the trials held in Illinois, Ohio and Iowa during the period between 1899 and 1901. The dog was one of the most perfectly broken ones ever seen at a field trial. His trainer was the late Walter Updyke, who believed in the theory that a field trial dog should be as thoroughly finished as the most approved shooting dog, and substantiated this theory in "King Cyrano". He was placed nine times. The dog acquired considerable patronage by reason of his brilliant performances, but he was not a great success as a sire, although "King Woolton", his white and liver son, out of "Druid's Zephyr", was a consistent performer. "Red Wing", another son, out of a "Hal Pointer bitch", also did some winning during the first decade of the present century. The other performing sons and daughters of "King Cyrano" are: "Cyrano Kent", "Ledger II", "Mab's Lad", "Wide-Awake", "Cy's Belle", and "Princess Mab". These were all winners in minor trials. Perhaps "King Cyrano's" greatest claim to distinction lies in the fact that he is the sire of "Lady Cyrano Rush", which became the dam of "Manitoba Rap", the first pointer that won the National Championship." -- Hochwalt, 1923
