Doncaster Rover to stand at Hedgeholme

SMART sprinter Doncaster Rover has been retired to stand at Hedgeholme Stud in County Durham.

The son of War Chant has been a regular feature in leading sprint races over the last five seasons and he won three Listed contests - the Queensferry Stakes at Chester, the Hopeful Stakes at Newmarket and the City of York Stakes at York.

Doncaster Rover also compiled some good form in defeat, including when he split Genki and Regal Parade with a head second in the Chipchase Stakes, finished runner-up to Main Aim in the Jury Stakes and was beaten less than a length by winner Prime Defender when fourth in the Duke of York Stakes.

Hedgeholme Stud owner Andrew Spalding said: "Doncaster Rover is a very good-looking horse and stands just under 16.1 hands. He was a precocious, smart horse and has a fine race record."

A fee of £2,000 has been set for Doncaster Rover, a half-brother to American Grade 1-wining two-year-old JB's Thunder. Spalding added that "suitable concessions" will be made available.
