The 2016 St Leger winner Harbour Law, has joined the stallion roster at Batsford Stud.

The five year old will be offered to breeders on a dual-purpose basis at a £4,000 fee, in a deal organised by Nicola Naylor on behalf of owner Nick Cornwell.

Harbour Law struck a blow for the big guns, as he gave Laura Mongan an unforgettable victory at Doncaster.

He is a son of Lawman out of the talented sprinter and Pivotal mare Abunai, while her dam Ingozi also produced the EP Taylor Stakes scorer Miss Keller.

“He will be offered on a dual-purpose basis and is looking particularly like a good National Hunt prospect,” said Naylor. “He’s absolutely beautiful, 16.1 hands, very correct and you couldn’t fault him.

“He’s been a hardy horse, coming from nowhere in the St Leger when he flew past everything. He has a wonderful temperament and you’d hope his progeny will be like that.”

Harbour Law joins two Classic winners at Batsford Stud: Haafh’d and Cockney Rebel, who both won the 2,000 Guineas.
