|Name:||Calix Delafayette (FR)|
|Pedigree:||Caballo Raptor (CAN) - Obepinedelafayette (FR)|
|Owner:||John and Jill Dodd|
After his Hurdle debut at Hexham in November 2017 Calix won his second race impressively at Kelso in heavy ground. He missed last season due to a very severe bout of colic. It was a supreme effort by the home team and vets Urs Schaeli and Carolyn Cummins to nurse him back to health and we hope he has now made a full recovery. He has a handicap mark of 120 and has won at both Ayr and Kelso. He has schooled well and the ultimate aim is Novice Handicap Chasing but he does need a good break in between races.
By Caballo Raptor, who was a Group 1 winner over hurdles (2m4f) and from a small crop of mares has had some good winners Raptor Badoudal etc. and about half of his products are winners. Out of Obepinedelafayette who is half-sister to three winners and from the family of Urban Hymn a Grade 2 Hurdle winner. We saw this horse at a French AQPS show.
