Larry's Grand Sire Killyreagh Kim:
In 1984 Killyreagh Kim won all titles at Clifden Show that a stallion could win:
    - Winner Society List Stallion
    - Winner Registerd Stallions
    - Confined Champion    and
    - Supreme Champion!

Larry's maternal Grand Sire Ashfield Alex:
In Ireland Ashfield Alex was always placed at Clifden and in 1982 came 3rd and both Larry's grandfathers (with Killyreagh Kim) shared 1st price for the Best kept Society stallion. Ashfield Alex has also a very fascinating pedigree, as he was the last colt to be registerd by Clonkeehan Auratum in 1977 being conceived when Auratum was 23. The Arab and Thoroughbred were brought into the Connemara blood to strengthen the breed, of which he has both with Naseel and Little Heaven.

Larry's maternal Grand Dam Grey Rock Star has won the following Show Classes :
    - Clifden 1982 5/6 Year Old Mare
    - Clifden 1981 5/6 Year Old Mare
    - Clifden 1980 4 Year Old Mare and Confined Champion
