German Shorthaired Pointer Club

Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer

LINDA FLINT MEMORIAL STAKES  

 

My sincere thanks to the members of the GSP Club for the kindness and hospitality that was extended to me. I was most impressed with the excellent venue and I thoroughly enjoyed my day with your lovely breed. I was delighted with the great entry and despite the extreme heat most of the dogs coped very well.  

Junior Dog or Bitch  

1 Harvey’s Soellis Jamie Pammie at Imaniz. Feminine and very steady on the move with some drive from the rear. Well angulated, good length of rib and good breadth of loin. Pleasing head with a kind intelligent expression.  

2 Stopforth’s Taftaznie Cesar Chance. Mature and handsome and he presents a pleasing outline with his short back and good neck and shoulders. Well boned with good legs and typically shaped, well-padded feet. Moved out well with a smooth, easy action.  

3 McArdle’s Archerpoint’s I Want It All  

Post Graduate Dog or Bitch  

1 Milligan’s Isara Kurzhaar All Spice. Very pleasing for both balance and type, good head proportions, kind expression. Decent forechest with well laid shoulders. Good depth of chest and rib. Good hind angulation with good muscle tone. Impressed on the move both out and back and in profile.  

2 Beverley’s Bryburn Artemis of Vinita JW. Close up and she too is feminine and very unexaggerated. Attractive head with good eyes, large open nostrils. Clean neck and shoulders. Good length of rib. Moved out well with a smooth easy action.  

3 Staley’s Jomeel Midnight Rambler  

Open Dog or Bitch  

1 Coghlan’s Sh Ch Soellis Smug Doug JW ShCM. Despite the intense heat, he really looked as though he could have done a day’s work. Grand head, adequate length of neck and clean shoulders and outline. Good length of rib. Strong broad loin. Well-muscled hindquarters. Moved out soundly with evidence of both reach and drive. Coarse coat.  

2 Drew’s Sh Ch Cushatlaw Illustrious JW. Teeming with quality and she is feminine and has a lovely kind expression. Pleasing to handle as she is well made with a decent forechest, good ribbing and strong hindquarters. Stands well covering plenty of ground and did not disappoint on the move.  

3 Brown & Burns’ Sh Ch Magregor Threesacrowd at Pothouse JW ShCM.
