Roaring Lion put to sleep

We are absolutely devastated to have to announce the death of Roaring Lion who has been put to sleep after suffering another bout of colic in New Zealand.

Tweenhills owner David Redvers said:

“At approximately midday (GMT) / 23.00 NZ today Roaring Lion was observed to be uncomfortable in his stable at Cambridge Stud. On examination by stud vet Rob Hitchcock, Roaring Lion was admitted to Cambridge Equine hospital.

“There operating surgeons Dr Alanna Zantingh and Dr Greg Quinn performed ultrasound examination and at 14.45 (GMT) the decision was made on welfare grounds to put Roaring Lion to sleep.”

Sheikh Fahad and all the team at Qatar Racing, Tweenhills, Cambridge Stud and Clarehaven Stables have lost a true champion who fought and fought and fought.
