Rend Lake Field Trial Club
Galatia, Ill. — The Rend Lake Field Trial Club’s spring trial held March 3-5 marked the 20th year of trials held at Peg and the late Jim Fornear’s Outland Ranch.
Outland has been a unique and greatly appreciated venue that Jim established and Peg Fornear has wholeheartedly supported since his passing.
Unfortunately, it appears that 2017 will be the end of trials at Outland as the property is now for sale and will no longer be maintained for field trials.
As usual, Greg and Kenny Robinson had the grounds and facilities ready for the spring round of trials to be enjoyed by everyone in attendance.
Twenty dogs were drawn in the All-Age Stake with Phillips Off Line taking first with two good finds and an all-age ground effort. Second was Touch’s Knight Rider with one find and a good race. Touch’s Fire Dancer took third with a strong race.
The Derby saw Wiggins River Stone and Thunder take first and second with strong ground races. High Drive Awsum Justice had one find and a nice race in taking third place.
Windy Hill War Creek and Woriotos Crazy Daisy shared a find in taking first and second, respectively, in the Shooting Dog. Lolita was third with a well applied ground effort.
Thanks to our judges Don, Scott, Bill and Roger for their well received placements.
