Show horse supremo Robert Walker fielded both supreme placings with Jill Day’s two promising young horses.

His showstopper was the four-year-old middleweight Greenhall Treasure Island (Larry). Bred by Derrie Rothman and by Island Commander, the lovely bay gelding was shown by Dessie Gibson as a two-year-old and his tally that year included the young horse supreme at Royal Dublin.

“He has so much limb and movement but the best thing about him is his brain,” said Robert, who rode Larry to win the novice championship at UK Nationals the week previous. “My wife, Sarah, thinks he could be the best one we’ve ever had.’
