The Dutch warmblood bred colt Oskar (by Hennessy x Prestige) became the winner of the Overall Foal Championship at the 2019 Devon Breed Show on Wednesday 25 September 2019.
Four foals, the winners and reserve champions of the colt and filly divisions, competed in the champion's ring for the overall foal title. KWPN breeding wielded the axe of power in the 2019 Devon Breed Show as all four foals competing for the Overall Championship were KWPN bred.
Christopher Preston's black colt Oskar was named the foal champion. He is by Hennessy out of Beatrice VDL (by Prestige VDL). He is bred by Dee Osborne.
The reserve champion was Robyn Weaver's KWPN filly, bred by Leslie Feakins. She is by Fabregas out of Glamour Girl (by Ampere).
The third ranked foal was the liver chestnut filly Odezsa (by Gaudi x Zeoliet), owned by Catherine Marcks. Mary Alice Malone's chestnut colt Oxford ISF (by Vitalis x Hofrat) followed in fourth place.
Spirit’s Celeste, Pony Foal Champion
For the second time at the Devon Breed Show pony breeding classes were included in the programme.
Two pony foals contested the Foal Champion's title. It was won by the 4-month old Morgan bred filly Spirit’s Celeste. Bred by Mikaila Isabelle Zanetti and owned by Lindsey Berry, she is by Primal Thunder out of Triplesweet Trinity (by Equinox Challenge). Over two show days she won IBC Morgan, Pony Fillies of the Current Year, Pony Foal Championship, Pony Young Horse Championship, and Reserve Champion of the National Dressage Pony Cup.
The reserve pony foal champion was the grey Arabian bred Jassirah RZ (by Waheed al Azhaar RZ x MD Mistaz). She is bred and owned by Angela White.
