Glamorgan WPCA Foal and Youngstock Show 2015

Pencoed College,
31st October 2015.

The Glamorgan WPCA Annual Foal and Youngstock Show was held at Pencoed College on Saturday 31st October. Entry numbers suffered owing to an unfortunate clash with the WPCS Judges Conference at Stoneleigh which many of the regular exhibitors attended. Nevertheless the standard of the exhibits was excellent with Mrs Kitty Bodily winning both Foal and Overall championships with her Section C colt foal Glebedale Rizzle Kicks and Mr Martin Davies reserve for both awards with his WPB foal Chaseford Teadance and his Section B yearling filly Nefydd Eilwen.

Glebedale Rizzle Kicks and Nefydd Eilwen

Glebedale Rizzle Kicks is full-brother to the Dutch Grading Show champion Glebedale Razamataz and also to Glebedale Razzle who has won consistently ridden by Eleri Marshalsay of Llanddeiniol. Chaseford Teadance is home-bred by Mr Martin Davies, sired by Borderland Aristocrat out of Blueriver Tapdance and he bought Nefydd Eilwen on the 2014 Brightwells Fayre Oaks Sale; she is sired by Rhoson Adonis out of Nefydd Alys, grand-daughter of the 1972 Royal Welsh champion Brockwell Chuckle.

Glebedale Stud had more success in Section A judged by Mr Richard Miller when their colt foal Glebedale Jimmy Choo (Thistledown Let it Be x Pendock Jingle) was foal champion with Dr Wynne and David Davies’ cream colt Ceulan Calib (Ysselvliedts Highwood x Ceuan Cara, a full-sister to Royal Welsh champion Ceulan Calon Lan) reserve.

Section A youngstock champion was Sian Reynolds’ yearling gelding Marsh Casius (Haverford Walk In The Clouds x Temptye Wishing); geldings of this standard are very hard to come by and we could well hear a lot more of Casius under saddle. The reserve champion also came from the yearling class, this was Stewart Franklin’s yearling filly Sarum Rose D’anjou (Vechtzicht Hywel x Sarum Rose Marie) produced by Katie Parry.

Section Bs, which in the past have been struggling for numbers, this time staged the strongest classes of the Show. The champion foal was the bay filly Bryngwennol Fair Treasure by Moelview Chester owned by the Russell family from Cardigan who have been good supporters of this Show from the beginning. Reserve champion foal was Mrs Pellington’s colt Wellizjemz Candyman by Waxwing Glimmer. Bryngwennol Fair Treasure was then reserve youngstock champin to Nefydd Eilwen.

Sections C and D were judged by Miss Katie Girdler. Apart from the five Section C colt foals, the classes were poorly supported but provided the overall supreme in Glebedale Rizzle Kicks. Reserve to Rizzle Kicks for both foal and youngstock championships was Nick Smith’s home-bred filly Welshview Rhiannon by Brynseion Dynasty produced by Popsters. It was good to see Mr Smith competing in Glamorgan again, the previous time was with the Section A Pentyrch Pip Arall over thirty years ago.

Champion Section D foal was local exhibitor Mrs Claire Davies with her home-bred filly Tirygelli Glitz N Glamour by Tirygelli Crusader and reserve was Jack Bowerman’s colt foal Llwynhywel Lord of the Ring by Tymor Fame and Glory. Glitz N Glamour was then reserve youngstock champion to Lee Harman’s three-year-old colt Kiron Jacobite by Pennal Calon Lan who has been a consistent winner all year.

Martin Davies’ Welsh part-bred filly foal Chaseford Teadance was foal champion and reserve youngstock to Steve Everett’s yearling Brookvale Prince George by Llanarth Decision.
