|Slaneyside Hare´s rise to the top of
the stud table was not an instant success story. He stood at stud with Paddy Sweeney, his
owner George Lightfoot and Nick Savva before eventually joining Micky O´Sullivan´s
Ballingarry range where the success story took off.
Hardly an oilpainting, Hare threw many better looking than
himself and a very few poo specimens. He threw for all distances. Most of his offspring
stayed 500 m and ungenuine Hare´s are virtually unknown.
Hare was the reigning champion sire and is now dead. The dog who threw th 1997 English Derby winner Some Picture and He Knows, developed cancer and was put to sleep within the last month.
Handler Micky O´Sullivan said: "Considering he only served half as many bitches in a year as many of the other top dogs he really showed his quality. He was a real superstar and a huge loss."
