Securing the overall breed championship at Hertfordshire County Show was David and Lesley Sapsed’s Heathbrow Caramel. Sired by Dirnanean Welcome she is out of the home bred Heathbrow Niagra daughter Heathbrow Valentine and was shown with her January-born heifer calf by Celtic Comet at foot. This year she has already won overall champion at Newark and Notts County Show, while last year she was reserve female champion at Royal Norfolk Show and interbreed champion at Suffolk Show.
The Sapseds also took the ribbons in the male championship with Heathbrow Exfactor. This Dirnanean Welcome son is out of the Salisbury Challenger daughter Darsham Real Treasure. Ex Factor carries a TPI of +71 and SRI of +77 and stood overall championship at the East of England Smithfield Festival last December.
