Lordship was New Zealand–bred Standardbred pacer. He is notable in that he won two New Zealand Trotting Cup races, the richest harness race, and sometimes the richest horse race in New Zealand. [1] He won 45 races and as a leading sire he sustained the Globe Derby sireline through his successful sons.

In 1962, and as a four year old, he beat the great champion racehorse Cardigan Bay in the New Zealand Trotting Cup on a rain affected track. He was a bit of a mudlark, and won the 1966 version of the cup, again on a wet track. The manner in which he eventually won merely confirmed that he is a world class champion fit to rank with the Cardigan Bay, Bret Hanover and Adios Butler circle.[2]

He won the following major races:
