Black Type Yeats Mare Records Effortless Victory
The talented Lilly Pedlar (6m Yeats - Mathine, by Malinas) gained a well-deserved win on Monday when justifying favouritism in the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle at Ffos Las.
The Nicky Henderson-trained mare was sent off favourite with three placings to her name, including at Grade 2 level over Monday’s distance of two and a half miles. Tracking the leader under Nico de Boinville, she led from three out and went clear from the second last, going on to win by nine and a half lengths with ease.
Owned by Hot To Trot Jumping, the daughter of Yeats was bred by JL Lightfoot out of a half-sister to Long Run.
