First mares scanned in foal to Roaring Lion

28 Feb 2019

Lion cubs are on the way for the 2018 Horse of the Year!

Roaring Lion, World Champion three‐year‐old of 2018 and Cartier Horse Of The Year, who stands at Tweenhills, 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 Gr.1 Falmouth Stakes heroine Giofra and has at least another seven Gr.1‐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.”
