Quality Blues Realise £2,765 Average At Perth

A small but select, quality entry of Belgian Blues at Perth, realised an average of £2,765. "Leverhulme Raleigh ET", from Leverhulme Farms, was put up as Supreme Champion, by Judge, Jim Reid, Bengall, Lockerbie. This animal, out of " Leverhulme Miriam ET" by "Elkehard Van De Wolvendreef", topped the trade at 3,400 guineas.

Coming a close second, as Reserve Champion, was "Bonerbo Rascal ET" out of "Vaporeuse De Miecret" by "Repute De My", from Messrs J Stevenson & Co. He went on to sell for 2,500 guineas.

Douglas Shedden & Sons found a new home for "Newfield Rambo", out of "Petteril Kylie" by "Valley Jackaroo" at a very respectable 2,000 guineas.

There was keen interest around the ring for this small consignment. Society Secretary, John Fleming, commented "Buyers at Perth are looking for quality animals with good mobility, which are well grown for their age. They were certainly not disappointed in those forward at Perth this February."
