REDCASTLE Pretty Amazing Grace proved to be just that when she secured the champion of champion honours for Sandy Aitken, at Aberfeldy Show.
The eight-year-old Clydesdale mare, by Millisle Solway Bay, is a past Cawdor Cup winner and already has a number of top titles behind her this year, including the championship at Fettercairn as well as the reserve at Kirriemuir.
It was a close call for the supreme, however, as the championship that was judged on a points basis saw only one point place Grace ahead of the commercial cattle and Blackface winners that shared equal reserve.
