Driffield Championship Dog Show

Breed: Stakes - Veteran & KC Breeders

KC Breeders Competition - Day 3 Gundogs

I thoroughly enjoyed judging this stakes class. All five entered were really super and there was very little between everyone.

1st: Westwood - NSDT Retriever. Really well matched trio who were foot perfect throughout. Really super presentation and moved in complete unison.  

2nd: O'Neill - Pointer. Lovely team - very well matched and coordinated. Close up to the winners.

3rd: Mort - Lagotto Romagnolo

Rob Farnsworth Veteran Stakes - Day 3 Gundogs

1st: AMOS-JONES, Miss S Sh Ch Veratey Vincenzo At Cassom JW. Cocker Spaniel. What a treat to be able to judge this famous dog now in semi retirement. Hard to believe he is 9 years old. Excellent balance. Well chiselled head of good length. Low set ears. Clean neck leading to well laid shoulders. Well sprung rib cage with short loin. Scores in hindquarters. In gleaming coat and condition. Really powered round the ring.

2nd: BRADLEY, Ms Elaine M Sh Ch Vizslanya Vivmany by Highforce JW Sh.CM ShCE. Hungarian Vizsla. My BOS earlier in the day. Can hold her own in any company. So sound on the move with a ground covering stride. Well balanced all through. True head, clean through neck and shoulders. Well muscled hindquarters. Excellent bone and feet.

3rd: CARR, Mr, Mrs and Miss M, D and LD Braccibrook's Wild One
