Last year’s reserve winner went one better amongst a strong section of Clydesdales to win the supreme.

Judge Pete Black presented the winning ribbons to Matthew Carrick’s home-bred two-year-old filly, Littleward Katy, a daughter of Collessie Monarch that was champion at Gargunnock and reserve at Ayr, Dunblane and Drymen last year. She also bagged a blue rosette at the Winter Fair.
