2015 bay filly by Yeats (Ire) ex Mathine (Fr) (Malinas (Ger))
Lilly Pedlar is by legendary multiple Ascot Gold Cup winner Yeats and out of a half-sister to none other than Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Long Run (also trained by Nicky) so she is bred to be smart! ‘Lilly’ has been given plenty of time to mature and impressed us all on hurdling debut. She could progress into a very nice mare.
Nicky Henderson needs no introduction as the five times Champion National Hunt Trainer. His Seven Barrows base in Lambourn has delivered the likes of See You Then, Long Run, Bob’s Worth, Binocular, Remittance Man and Punjabi to Championship Race glory at the Cheltenham Festival and his handling of mares is exemplary.
