Whelped December 1881; orange and white; by "Sensation's Son", out of "Champion Grace", by "Match", out of "Nell"; "Sensation's Son", by "Sensation (1261)", out of "Flirt".

""Sensation" was the sire of but two field trial winners. These were "Belle" ... and "Sensation, Jr." ... "Belle" was out of a bitch named "Grace" and was owned by D.S. Gregory, while "Sensation, Jr." was out of "White's Grace", who belonged to Luke White. "Grace (White's)" was bred back to the Sensation blood, this time to "Sensation's Son" -- the same breeding -- and in this manner "Lalla Rookh" was produced. She was a lemon and white bitch of very handsome proportions and decidedly the best field trial performer carrying the Sensation blood that had yet been seen, but as the blood of "Grace" figures very strongly in her breeding, it may be inferred that she is more responsible for "Lalla Rookh's" quality than "Sensation", since "Grace" produced from sire as well as son."

"Later, during the same year (1882), the first important Pointer derby stake
wins were made. This was in the Eastern Field Trial Club derby in which 10 English
Setters, 2 Irish Setters, and 4 Pointers started. The black Pointer "Darkness" won first,
the liver and white Pointer "Tick" was second, and the lemon and white Pointer
accounted for divided third. One of the judges in this stake was Elliott Smith, who was
also a judge in the All-Age stake, except, according to the records of the late
Major J.M. Taylor, when Pointers ran!. In which direction he was supposed to be
prejudiced the record does not state, but "Lalla Rookh" also won divided third and the
Pointer "Croxteth" was second in the All-Age stake."
