After only four years of breeding, Sonny Lagon with his Blue Blade Sweater – Crosses has undoubtedly established himself as one of the most formidable rooster-raisers in the Philippines today.
Guided by his strong friendship Bruce Barnett of Blackwater, Alabama (the “hidden” breeder behind the Blackwater line), Sonny Lagon has evolved from a neophyte gamefowl farmer in 1999 to be among the bests in the local cocking scene.
With his superb-fighting Blue Blade Sweaters, Sonny Lagon has won among others, the prestigious United Cockers Association of the Philippines Stagfighter
of the Year title in 2000, 2001 & 2003; several Cocker of the year finishes; numerous big time derby championships including the most recent NCA Grand National 8 Stag Derby held at Araneta Coliseum, 480-entry P8.8M Roligon 10th Anniversary 7-Cock Derby and the 142-entry Balbina Cup 2002 7-Stag Derby in Negros last October with a perfect 7 win score fielding stags trained and conditioned at the Blue Blade Farm in San Pablo City.
Through his entry Blue Moon, Sonny was undefeated as he closed the 2002 stag season in November with a 5 win-2 draw-performance during the “Bakbakan 7-Stag National Derby” at the Araneta Coliseum hosted by the National Federation of Gamefowl Breeders Associations.
For 2003, Lagon starts his renewed bid for the elusive Cocker of the Year Award with a sterling 7-0 win-loss card for a solo victory during the UCAP 7-Cock Derby held at the Mandaluyong Coliseum last February 4 & 6 hosted by Danding Cojuangco & Major Bobby Doromal.
Young at 34, a telecommunications engineer, successful in business, daring, good-looking, well-mannered and generous, but humble and down-to-earth, Lagon epitomizes today’s generation of cockfighters and gamefowl breeders: the generation that will make sure that cockfighting will be here to stay.
