Roaring Lion's Introductory Stud Fee Set at £40,00014 Nov 2018

Lightning Spear and Australian star Zoustar will also join Roaring Lion.
Roaring Lion will stand his debut season at Tweenhills Stud for a fee of £40,000 (US$51,932), the highest price confirmed so far for a newcomer to the stallion ranks in Great Britain and Ireland.
The son of Kitten's Joy , who was crowned the Cartier Horse of the Year this week after winning four group 1s during 2018, was paraded at his new home Nov. 15 after returning from his unsuccessful Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) mission.
That final-race blemish took little gloss off what was a remarkable 3-year-old campaign for Roaring Lion, who progressed from promising displays in the QIPCO Two Thousand Guineas (G1) and Investec Derby (G1) to confirm himself the dominant force over 10 furlongs.
Roaring Lion was bought for $160,000 from the 2016 Keeneland September Yearling Sale from Taylor Made Sales Agency by David Redvers, manager of Qatar Racing, who spoke Nov. 15 of his pride at seeing the colt join the stallion ranks at Tweenhills.
"It is a huge privilege and honor to stand Roaring Lion for Sheikh Fahad and his brothers," Redvers said. "He is by some margin the best horse I have ever been involved with and is the toughest horse I have seen on a racecourse. His class, durability, and will to win made him look cut from a different cloth this season, and his pedigree and looks make him one of the most attractive stallion prospects to retire to stud in recent years.
"He's a superior horse, and I believe he will prove an equally strong influence as a sire."
