Purchased for €25,000 at the Arqana Sale in Deauville, November 2013.
A high-class performer on the flat in Germany earlier in his career, Lamool made a bright starts in his initial switch to hurdling, running well in defeat in Graded company, but he failed to progress and his sole NH win came in a minor chase in the French provinces.
However, given his status as a novice hurdler (and chaser through to May 2014) and the ability he had shown on the flat as a youngster, he looked capable of winning races in the UK and was bought on behalf of trainer Tim Vaughan.
Given a short break, he made his debut for his new connections at Ludlow in April 2014, jumping well and showing a good attitude to win a £12,000 chase on his first start for the Tim Vaughan yard. Congratulations to Tim and Lamool’s owners Jeff and Rachel Frost.
