Antti was bred by Tiina Illukka, (Caballus kennel, Finland) and was owned by Michele and Ludo Ivaldi, Ludstar Kennels, Italy.

In 2002 Antti gained his UK crown becoming the first overseas bred and owned UK Show Champion. Prior to this he won extensively in Europe for his owners. After a brief visit back to Italy he returned to Surrey where he has remained achieving the breed record for most CC's won by a male Gordon Setter, all from different judges................

I am proud to have had the privilege to handled him to the success he achieved, winning 41CC's and Best Veteran at Crufts 2010 after which he was retired whilst at the top.

Sadly Antti left me all too soon leaving me with so many memories of all the fun and great times we had together.

He has left some wonderful offspring behind, to their owners treasure them.

He will be a hard act to follow....................


Antti farewell but not goodbye...................
