Surprise winner of the Irish Grand National this Monday at the Fairyhouse, Lord Lariat gave a moment of glory to his father, the little known Golden Lariat.

Mr Prospector, breed leader and grandfather of an Irish Grand National winner… through a completely unknown son!
A horse with a somewhat extraordinary story that I told you Thierry Grancier (read the full article on Mr. Prospector), Mr Prospector is one of the preeminent breed leaders in the history of purebreds, whose influence lives on in many offshoots, each as good as the next. The history of horse racing, on the other hand, tells us much less about one of his rare sons still actively working in stud farms, a certain Golden Lariat stationed in Ireland in Tullaganslick Stud. Run by generations of the Carey family since 1858, this historic stud farm welcomes this magnificent chestnut that just experienced its moment of glory last Monday in the Irish Grand National won by his son. Lord Lariat.
Here is the famous Golden Lariat, Mr. Prospector’s magnificent son… but who is he?
This amazing Lord Lariat, who allowed his trainer Dermot McLaughlin to retain his title in the flagship race of the Fairyhouse Easter meeting, it’s a little finger, just the way we like it. Descended from a ghost, he is the only winner known to his mother. Johnny Pride who made a career at Point to Point. Lord Lariat himself started in this amateur discipline with his co-owner PJ Caseywhat is connected with Pat Blake..Two friends bought him for 5500 euros at the Fairyhouse at Tattersalls August sale, although he did not find a buyer for 2800 euros two years ago.

Won his maiden at 2 years old, then a head start at 3 years old, without taking a single black type.

She has produced many winners, including Razcalla, 2nd in Dubai Scheme Classic.

His stud farm is renowned among sport horses in Ireland and primarily specializes in preparing young horses for model and gait competitions such as the Dublin Horse Show. He also says about Lord Lariat, our famous Irish Grand National winner, that he would be handsome enough to go to such a competition at 3 years old! The Golden Lariat is a very beautiful horse in its own right, having won drawing and gait competitions since the end of its racing career and has spawned numerous champions of the genre.
