|Pedigree:||Caballo Raptor (CAN) - Obepinedelafayette (FR)|
|Owner:||John and Jill Dodd|
Calix Delafayette is an 8yo Hurdle and Bumper winner for the yard who has not always been the easiest to train as he needs quite specific conditions and has not ever really had a good run of things.
He won a 2 mile Bumper at Ayr and a Novice Hurdle at Kelso over 2m 2f both on heavy ground. Unfortunately he lost his rider on his first time over fences before lock down and so we didn’t really learn a great deal. However, he has never looked better and is ticking along nicely until the softer ground arrives.
Second foal out of a Dam placed over fences at 2 m 3f and half-sister to hurdle/chase winner Yodeli and chase winners Arthur De Donjohn and Miss Charter and Grade 2 Hurdle winner Urban Hymn.
Sire Caballo Raptor was a Group 1 winner over hurdles at 2m 4f in France as a 4yo. He did not have many mares and two of his best products we purchased in France were Pas Trop Tard and Plus Jamais. Other successful performers were Badoudal (4 wins in France) and Raptor who was 140 rated and trained by Willie Mullins
