A report of races July 1829:-
"[In consequence of the boastings of Mr. Hunter Peel, and his usage of the rider of the above bay horse, we have authority to state that Mr. Carruthers will run him for ten guineas within a week, being Mr. Peel's own proposal.]"
Hunter Peel was John Peel; there is nothing to show that the challenge was accepted.
