Hurry On (May 7, 1913–1936) was an outstanding British Thoroughbred racehorse and sire that revived the Matchem sire line. For a trainer who conditioned as many top winners as the Englishman Fred Darling, the observation that Hurry On was the best horse he ever trained is high praise indeed. Hurry On never ran as a two year old and was not entered for the Derby, but he was unbeaten in all six three year old starts, including the war time St. Leger at Newmarket Racecourse and the Jockey Club Cup. He cost his Scotch whisky producer owner James Buchanan, later Baron Woolavington, just 500 guineas as a yearling.
Hurry On sired the Derby winner Captain Cuttle from the first mare he covered at stud, and was the Leading sire in Great Britain & Ireland in 1926, the year his colt Coronach emulated Captain Cuttle at Epsom. He sired a third Derby winner in Call Boy, as well as two Epsom Oaks winners, Pennycomequick and Toboggan, and two 1,000 Guineas winners, Plack and Cresta Run. His son Precipitation was a successful racehorse and sire, too. Coronach sired two winners of the Italian Derby before he was given away and exported to New Zealand where he was a successful sire that produced 16 stakeswinners for 23 stakeswins.
