Llama Farmer reaps first win

24/1/10 - Son of Sagamix lands decent novice hurdle at Haydock

The memorably-named Llama Farmer, by Overbury’s new recruit Sagamix, got off the mark on his third racecourse appearance with a determined win in the 2m4f novices’ hurdle at Haydock on Saturday.

Challenging for the lead at the final flight, the five-year-old then took up the running to draw away for a three-and-a-quarter-length victory. He becomes the first winner for his dam Quick Quick Sloe, by Scallywag.

Bred in Britain by Dr S G F Cave, Llama Farmer was sold to his trainer Paul Webber as a three-year-old for 28,000gns at Doncaster’s May Sale.

Webber is not the only British National Hunt trainer to have latched on to the potential of young jumpers by the formerly French-based stallion. The stable of Champion trainer Paul Nicholls currently houses the top-rated juvenile hurdler in the land, Royal Mix, who has been given a Timeform rating of 137p, a pound clear of Me Voici, the recent winner of G1 Coral Future Champions Finale Juvenile Hurdle at Chepstow. Royal Mix is entered in the G1 Spring Juvenile Hurdle at Leopardstown on 7 February.
