Winner of 12 Challenge Certificates a Group 1 award and a Group 2 award in the UK

He then went to live with Warren and Helen Cake, who campaigned him to his Australian Title. At his first show in his new country he went on to Supreme Best in Show under Harry Spira.

This judge told the Cake’s, after he had judged Best in Show at Crufts, that they had a better dog in their yard than the Crufts Supreme Champion. Hero really was that good. But the UK All-Rounder judges were not interested in Rough Collies at that time, so would never place them as high as they should have done. For that matter they still do not do so.

Due to an argument with his co-buyer, he was very little used at stud in Australia, but he did sire one Australian Champion.
