Impressively Effortless Success For Son Of Westerner
Success never looked in doubt for Len Brennan (6g Westerner - Letthedancebegin, by Flemensfirth) at Sedgefield on Thursday, as he cruised home a clear winner of the Novices’ Hurdle over two miles and five furlongs.
The Tim Vaughan-trained bay had been knocking on the door, with a close second over further last month, as well as five placings over fences. Sent off favourite under Alan Johns, he made all and began to extend his advantage from two out, crossing the line 15 lengths in front.
Owned by The Oxymorons, Len Brennan was bred by Barry Murphy out of point-to-point winner Letthedancebegin (Flemensfirth), herself a half-sister to black-type chaser Sunami Storm.
