Preliminary Results of Red Setter Nationals...

Here are some preliminary results from the ongoing National Red Setter FTC Spring Championship and supporting stakes...

Breakstone, owned and handled by Dr. Roger Boser, has won the Open Championship; runner-up is Rocky's Straight Arrow, owned by Brian Gelinas and handled by Don Jones. A total of 21 dogs entered and ran.

The Red Setter Futurity is ongoing as of this posting, with 2 braces completed and 5 to go...

In the Open Walking Shooting Dog Classic, Her Ruby Red Slipper took the 1st, owned and handled by Al Fazenbaker. Second was Hondo Muldoon, owned and handled by Jim Ashby; 3rd went to Meteu Medicine Man, owned and handled by Al Fazenbaker. A total of 10 dogs in the stake.

The Open Walking Derby was won by "Red" , owned and handled by Bill Aughenbaugh; don't have 2nd place dog name available right now, but I think the dog was handled by Billie Vaughn of Come Back Kennels; third was taken by Conneaut Creek Holly's Memory, owned and handled by Al Fazenbaker.
