Erhaab to continue stud career at Batsford

BATSFORD Stud in Gloucestershire is the new home of 1994 Derby hero Erhaab.

The son of Chief’s Crown, who came with a strong late run under Willie Carson to defeat King’s Theatre and Colonel Collins in the Epsom Classic, was originally retired to stand in Japan but returned in 2001.

Erhaab stood until this season at Wood Farm Stud in Shropshire, which was put on the market earlier this year by its owner Bill Bromley.

Erhaab is sire of smart sprinter Sohraab and numerous jumps winners including Grade 2 bumper scorer Sitting Tennant and Grade 3-placed hurdler Ballygally Bay.

Batsford Stud’s Alan Varey said: “We’re so pleased Shadwell approached us to stand Erhaab. He’s a Classic winner and a very attractive horse, and he should complement our other two stallions, Kadastrof and Pasternak, very well.”

A fee for Erhaab will be announced in the coming weeks.
