Roaring Lion, the world champion 3-year-old of 2018 and Cartier Horse Of The Year, who stands at Tweenhills Stud in England, has taken to stallion duties with ease and has had his first mares scanned in foal, including Qatar Racing-owned Common Knowledge.
Common Knowledge is the dam of dual stakes winners Astrophysical Jet and Coral Wave and boasts a strong pedigree herself. Her granddam was blue hen Highclere – dam of the great Height Of Fashion, who foaled Nayef, Nashwan and Unfuwain.
Roaring Lion has already been visited by Group 1 Falmouth Stakes heroine Giofra and has at least another seven G1-winning mares to cover in his first breeding season, including; Lightening Pearl, Just The Judge, Simple Verse, Bateel and Golden Lilac.
The team at Tweenhills are very happy with the way all six Qatar Racing stallions are covering but are especially pleased with Roaring Lion.
David Redvers, Qatar Racing manager, and owner and manager of Tweenhills, said: “In everything Roaring Lion has done so far he has excelled and therefore it is no surprise to see that his first three mares have all been scanned in foal. He is having a busy season but has taken to his new role with aplomb.”
Roaring Lion's fee for 2019 is £40,000 (US$53,134).
The Qatar Racing stallion roster includes record-breaking first season sire Zoustar, G1 Sussex Stakes winner Lightning Spear, the returning leading British based first season sire Charm Spirit, permanent residents Hot Streak and Havana Gold, and four-time G1 winner and Cartier Horse of the Year Roaring Lion.
