The Warwick Gold Cup winning combination was 58 year-old campdrafter, Lloyd Brown, Mallanganee, NSW astride the 17-year-old Chestnut stallion Mallanganee Sampson. 

The NSW duo took home the coveted ‘Melbourne Cup’ of campdrafting, at the Warwick Rodeo and Campdraft today.

“This is the pinnacle of my campdrafting career and I can tick it off the bucket list now,” Lloyd said.

Lloyd went to into the final round on  top the ‘leader board’ with a combined score from the first two rounds of 180 points.

His four closest rivals were Berry Shann, Karl Burton, Terry Hall and Bradley Buttsworth, all sitting on 176 points.

“I was four points ahead, but I left nothing to chance,” he said.

“The steers in this event, donated by Mac and Gayle Shann, Lamont Droughtmaster Stud, Clermont, and fed by the nearby Freestone Feedlot, were tremendous,” he said.

Lloyd has been competing in the Warwick Gold Cup for 30 years, and had nothing but praise for his mount.

“He is a resilient stallion who has produced many winners, including Roxby Park Kambala who was the supreme led Australian Stock Horse at the Melbourne Royal Show,” he said 

“I have made a few Gold Cup finals before, and placed second previously, but this win takes it all.” 

Lloyd bred Mallanganee Sampson, and his dam, Mallanganee Julie, has won 26 open draft winners.
