Not at all settled on the move but when he gets his act together he will be quite something. 2 Bethel’s Hampdach Celebrity. 6 months b/t and rather raw at the moment and lacking body. The best mover and showman in the class but it could not take him to the top of the class on the day. 3 Walkley’s Churchoak Red Adair.
