Charlotte Young, of Hall Stud, Ayr, continued her winning form at Lanark Foal Show, last Saturday, taking both the foal championship and reserve.

It was Doura Imelda, a May-born filly foal, which took the foal and supreme championship honours. By the imported stallion, Doura Geronimo, and out of Braehead Rowan, she had taken the same awards the previous week at Kilmarnock.

Charlotte’s colt foal was reserve from the youngsters. Doura Catalyst is a May-born son of Doura Aird Ambition, out of the Irish-bred mare, Rosegift Golden Rose. He won the colt foals this time, having been reserve colt at Kilmarnock.

The day’s reserve supreme title went to the senior champion, Scott Greenhill’s Fordelhill Queen Victoria, from Leuchars Lodge, Fife. No stranger to the limelight, this home-bred 14-year-old mare is by Collessie Whinhill President, out of Fordelhill Lady Margaret.

The reserve senior rosette went to Jim Neill, Rossiebank, Dunning. His yearling filly, Rossie Moira, is by Redcastle Brelee Majestic, out of Rossie Miriam.

Reserve filly foal was Freezlund Heidi, from John and Margo McIntyre, Gillmill Cottage, Stewarton. This one has imported breeding on both sides being by Freedom Majestic Dreamliner and out of Webers Sadie Jakey Victoria. It had been reserve overall honours the previous week.

Bob Hamilton, Dillars, Lesmahagow, had the reserve colt foal in Dillars Moneymaker. This one is by Dillars Excelsior.
