First Roaring Lion Foal Born

Recommended Posts

The first foal from the lone crop of 2018 Cartier Horse of the Year Roaring Lion (Kitten’s Joy), a colt, was born on Jan. 11 at Jeffrey and Phoebe Hobby’s Brightwalton Stud in Newbury. He is the second foal out of Counterweight (Ire) (Azamour {Ire}), who is a sister to a trio of stakes horses including the G1 Irish Oaks and G2 Ribblesdale S. second Scottish Stage (Ire) (Selkirk) and the G2 Blandford S. winner Eleanora Duse (Ire) (Azamour {Ire}).

Brightwalton Stud Manager Sean Keane said, “He is a well-made, attractive colt with plenty of athleticism. He is full of energy and is a joy to be around. The Hobbys are delighted with him.”

Roaring Lion stood at Tweenhills Stud, and that farm’s Zoustar (Aus) also had his first Northern Hemisphere foal born late last week, a filly at Peter Winkworth’s Merton Place Stud in Surrey. Zoustar stands for £30,000 in 2020 and had yearlings sell at Magic Millions last week for A$900,000, A$600,000, A$580,000, etc.
