Gutsy Ascot display sees Roaring Lion increase points’ lead for Cartier Horse Of The Year Award

Roaring Lion gained a fourth consecutive G1 victory with a brave neck success in the mile Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (Sponsored By QIPCO) on soft ground at Ascot on Saturday, October 20, to further cement his place at the head of the Cartier Horse Of The Year standings on points.
