Named for a hunting lodge, this American champion was originally intended for racing in Europe but was held back from making the journey across the Atlantic by the trainer of his owner's American-based racing stable. The trainer was so enamored of the young horse that he faked the animal's illness to keep the colt in his own stable. Who was this champion, and who was the trainer who retained him for American racing?

I believe it's Sysonby. James Rowe Sr. was his trainer that faked the illness that kept Sysonby in the United States for ames R. Keene's American racing stable.
