Simon, still on a high after riding the four-year-old mare, Baydale Venus, to take the Horse of the Year Show, Hack of the Year title said: "The foal was purchased in July from Jill and John Knowlson of the Kylebeck Stud near York.
"He is by Thorneyside Cream Boy and out of Kylebeck Coral Reef who is by Crugybar Mabon Mai. He is now entered for the NPS Area 4 Foal show before going to the Royal Welsh Winter Fair in Builth Wells in December.
"We plan to keep him as a colt and show him next season as a yearling; then as a three-year-old before having a ridden career and going to the Royal Welsh in the Senior Welsh Cob Stallion class."

His dam, grandsire and sister Dilwys Moonshine have all been in the top four at the Royal Welsh. Calvert Williams, Walena Stud, West Wales leased his mother from me in foal to his sire which I also owned. We were so impressed with him as a young foal we bought him back to hopefully take over from his grandfather.
"Dilwys Moonraise will be returning to the Dilwys Stud next year. We also took the Reserve Championship with Benhill Stitch in Time, by Ebbw Jason out of Cefnpant Rhosen, by Yorkin Come Lucky. It was her first show. She was bred by Mel Smallman in Gloucestershire and bought at Hay on Wye Welsh Breeder's sale."
