Junior scores 86 on way to a win

DAVID Dwan recorded his best career score of 86 to win his seventh junior campdraft at the Eastern Downs branch of the Australian Stock Horse Society Futurity, Maturity, Challenge and Campdraft at the weekend.

Most of the campdrafting was held yesterday and Dwan tied with Trent Sheppard on 80 which meant a run off was needed.

While Sheppard only had a camp score of 22, Dwan was victorious with 86.

Dwan has won his seven campdrafts on three different horses after first competing at the age of eight.

“Cash is my best horse,” he said.

The 12-year-old rider is in year eight at Assumption College.

While he has had outstanding success at campdrafting, he rates rugby league as his main sport and plays for the Collegians Dragons.

To make it a real family day, David’s grandfather Michael Boyce, of Felton, won the open campdraft.

Organiser Christine Holmes said the branch attracted bigger numbers for the futurity (yearling to four-year-old stock horses).

“We also had extremely large numbers for the youth events today,” Holmes said. “Overall, it was a better weekend than last year and run in perfect weather.”
