Lomond (foaled 1980 in Kentucky) was an Irish Thoroughbred racehorse best known for winning the 1983 Classic 2,000 Guineas Stakes. He was sired by Northern Dancer, the most successful sire of the 20th Century, whom the National Thoroughbred Racing Association calls "one of the most influential sires in Thoroughbred history."
Lomond's dam was My Charmer, a granddaughter of U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee Round Table. My Charmer was an outstanding broodmare who produced 1977 U.S. Triple Crown champion Seattle Slew. As well, she produced Seattle Dancer, who sold at the July 1985 Keeneland Sales for US$13.1 million, the highest amount ever paid for a yearling at public auction.
Bred in Kentucky by the partnership of Warner L. Jones, William S. Farish III and William S. Kilroy, Lomond was sold as a foal in a private transaction for US$1.5 million to British racing's leading owner, Robert Sangster, who had built his highly successful stable from Northern Dancer offspring.
Trained by Vincent O'Brien, Lomond made only seven lifetime starts, winning the 1983 Gladness Stakes at the Curragh Racecourse in Ireland and the Classic 2,000 Guineas Stakes at England's Newmarket Racecourse.
As a sire in Ireland, Lomond notably produced:
- Dark Lomond (b. 1985) - winner of the 1988 Irish St. Leger
- Varadavour (b. 1989) - won Carleton F. Burke Handicap
- N B Forrest (b. 1992) - a three-time winner of the Battlefield Stakes at Monmouth Park Racetrack.
