Tobougg to continue career at Anngrove Stud

DEWHURST Stakes winner Tobougg is to continue his stallion career at Alastair Pim’s Anngrove Stud in County Laois.

The 14-year-old son of Barathea has stood at Clarendon Farm in Wiltshire for the past four seasons, having started out at  his owner Sheikh Mohammed’s Dalham Hall Stud in Newmarket.

Tobougg is the sire of New Zealand 2,000 Guineas winner The Pooka and German 1,000 Guineas scorer Penny’s Gift, and he is also coming to the fore as a jumps stallion.

His son Bouggler won the Grade 2 Mersey Novices’ Hurdle in 2009, while the Alan King-trained Mcvicar looks a potential star of the the three-year-old hurdling division after an impressive 15-length victory at Huntingdon last Sunday.

Pim said: “We are delighted to stand Tobougg at Anngrove and are extremely grateful to Sheikh Mohammed. 

“Tobougg has proved himself a high-class commercial dual-purpose sire. He is an extremely good-looking and correct individual, which he passes on to his progeny. Being by Barathea and himself an unbeaten champion two-year-old, he has several exciting National Hunt prospects showing excellent form and he has the potential to get to the top of the jumps sire rankings.”

Tobougg will stand at Anngrove alongside Pilsudski, Robin Des Pres and Rudimentary. His fee will be announced at a later date.
