The Last Lion to Stand at Kelvinside

Tuesday, 28th March 2017

Top-class European juvenile The Last Lion (Choisir-Mala Mala, by Brief Truce) will shuttle to Australia where he will stand at Darley’s Kelvinside this season. Trained by Mark Johnston, The Last Lion won 4 of his 10 starts last season highlighted by an impressive victory in Europe’s premier 2YO sprint, the Gr1 Middle Park Stakes over 1200m. Alastair Pulford, Head of Sales for Darley stallions in Australia said: “The success of Danehill-line speed stallions here in Australia has been phenomenal and we are delighted to have two more young stallions who fit that criteria joining our roster this season with The Last Lion at Kelvinside and Holler at Northwood Park.” He added: “The Last Lion was tough and precocious, exactly what the Australian market looks for in a stallion. He also boasts a strong female family. His dam was Gr1-placed on multiple occasions herself as a juvenile and she is a producer of two other Stakes winners already.”
