Throwback Race Wednesday

Roaring Lion

The Coral Eclipse takes place on the Sunday of this week on what rounds three pieces of Group One action and we have looked back at the 2018 renewal of the race.

The race was full of superstars including 2000 Guineas winner Saxon Warrior, 2017 Eclipse winner Hawkbill and Derby second Cliffs Of Moher, but they were all no match for the winner.

Roaring Lion had an electric career going on to land four Group Ones in a row and that sequence started with his win in this race at Sandown.

He renewed his rivalry in the final stages with Saxon Warrior and again just managed to get the better of him before the line.

The John Gosden trained grey was a joy to watch in the sport and is still sadly missed after passing away as a four year old from Colic.
