TRAINER: Willie Mullins, Closutton
FAROUT is a four-year-old son of Dark Angel who joined Willie Mullins for Thurloe Ireland after he was purchased for €65,000 at the Arqana Deauville Autumn Sale in November 2020. As a two and three year old Farout was trained by Francis Graffard in Chantilly and during that time he won a Handicap at Vichy over 1m 2f. He has a strong female family with his dam a half sister to the dam of top class National Hunt sire Maxios.
He has slotted into the string at Clostutton well and is pleasing his trainer who has been thrilled by how he has taken to jumping.
Farout has been given a speculative entry for the Grade 1 Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in March.
