Throwback Saturday Race

Roaring Lion

The Irish Champions Stakes is the feature in Ireland today and we are taking a look back at 2018's renewal of the race when Roaring Lion took on Saxon Warrior in one of the best resumptions of the contest for some time.

The late Roaring Lion raced 13 times in his career, across three different countries and went on to win eight contests placing in another two of them, overall landing four Group One contests.

The Qatar Racing owned colt hd an amazing 2018 landing four consecutive black type victories in the Sandown Coral Eclipse, York Juddmonte International Stakes, Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown and finally the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on British Champions Day at Ascot.

This race at Leopardstown showed him at his gritty and determined self and what he will be remembered for within the horse racing world.
