There was local success at last weekend’s Horse Show of the Year in Birmingham when Billy Twomey emerged victorious in the Speed Horse of the Year competition with Ardcollum Duke.
Ardcollum Duke is based in the UK with Billy Twomey but the stallion has connections much closer to home as he was bred and is owned by Joe Flynn from Arigna.
