Wolfhound (22 April 1989 – 2009) was a Thoroughbred racehorse and sire. He won the Haydock Sprint Cup and the Prix de la Forêt.

Background[edit]

Wolfhound was a chestnut horse bred in Kentucky by W S Farish III & W S Kilroy. He was acquired by Sheikh Mohammed and was sent to race in Europe where he was trained by John Gosden.

Racing career[edit]

Wolfhound raced for three years and won six of his sixteen races. As a three-year-old in 1992, he won the Diadem Stakes at Ascot and the Prix de la Foret at Longchamp. In the following year he added another major victory when he took the Haydock Sprint Cup.

Stud record[edit]

Wolfhound stood as a breeding stallion in Europe and South Africa but made little impact as a sire of winners.
