Lahib to stand
at Old Road Stud
LAHIB will stand at James Hannon's Old Road Stud in Tallow, Co. Waterford this season at a fee of €2,500.
The son of Riverman, who is still managed by Derrinstown Stud, has stood the past seven seasons at Scarvagh House Stud, which closed its stallion operation late last year.
Lahib has enjoyed a successful stud career on the Flat as the sire of Group 1 winners such as Mus-If, successful in the National Stakes, and Super Tassa, winner of the Yorkshire Oaks. However, he is also gaining a reputationas a useful jumps sires thanks to the likes of Emma Lavelle's exciting novice hurdler Kangaroo Court and Helen Wood, a smart jumps mare for David Pipe.
He is also the broodmare sire of the Aga Khan's multiple Group 1 winner Mandesha.
Lahib was crowned the European Champion Older Horse of 1992 following wins in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, in which he beat Selkirk and Marling, and the Group 2 Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot. He also ran second to Rodrigo De Triano in the Group 1 Champion Stakes.
Lahib will join Busy Flight, Cloudings and Witness Box at Old Road Stud.
