Lahib makes move to Old Road Stud; BLOODSTOCK WORLD.

LAHIB will stand at James Hannon's Old Road Stud in Tallow, County Waterford this season at a fee of EUR2,500.

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 Mus-If, successful in the National Stakes, and Super Tassa, winner of the Yorkshire Oaks.

However, he is also a useful jumps sire thanks to the likes of Emma Lavelle's smart novice hurdler Kangaroo Court.

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 and Group 2 Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot.

He will join Busy Flight, Cloudings and Witness Box at Old Road Stud.
