Mace retired from the showring on his 6th birthday 8th Dec 2019,
winning 129 challenges throughout his career, with a 2 year break
as a youngster, following injury.
The highlight of 2019, was winning Best in Show at the Gundog Speciality
show., expertly handled by Christie Mckennie
Always a gentleman, soft and gentle, happy to be in the ring, true vizsla temperament
The handsome son of the late CH Ponsonby Red Hot n'Sassy, and our Hungarian import, NZ CH GRANITEHILL UNGARICUM AT PONSONBY (Bartok)
Mace wins reserve of breed at all 4 shows, PUPPY OF GROUP X 2 and an awesome PUPPY IN SHOW
He continues his winning ways into junior, and is now starting to mature.
He has lots to offer, with his very correct construction, beautiful depth of chest, excellent topline, and ground covering movement, and like his mum and dad, a lovely nature, and we feel the best is yet to come
Back in the show ring, after a 2 year absence, due to injury. Taking BOB at all 4 shows 25/26 March 2017. The boy is back!
Mace now has progeny in USA and the UK, and we wish them well
Ever since I was a young boy
I've played the silver ball
From Soho down to Brighton
I must have played them all
But I ain't seen nothing like him
In any amusement hall
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pin ball!
