Firefly's Hot Tip First in the Open Shooting Dog Stake

Grovespring, Mo. — The Colorado Field Dog Association fall trial was held at the Sportsmen’s Field Trial Grounds at Grovespring, Mo., on November 4-5. The grounds were in great shape and the weather was beautiful.

The judges for all stakes were Fred Smith and Caleb Bryson; they paid attention to all performances and were a pleasure to have around. We appreciate their dedication to the sport. Caleb was accompanied by his wife Lorie and daughters Grace and Evie who rode most of the trial.

Winning the Open Shooting Dog  (seven entries) was Firefly’s Hot Tip, Irish setter female owned by Dennis and Bonnie Hidalgo, handled by Bonnie. Tippy scored two nice covey finds in a mostly forward race. Placed second was Kindle which ran a forward race for handler Dennis Hidalgo. Rendition, Irish setter male, was third with a fine edge running race for Dr. Roger Boser.

In the Open Derby (shooting dog standards) with eight entries, all dogs were placed on the quality of their races. The winner was Firefly’s Sugarland, Irish setter female owned by Bonnie and Dennis Hidalgo and handled by Bonnie. Second was Black Jack of Snowcreek, pointer male owned and handled by Dr. Stan Haag. Bandwagon Prairie Princess, pointer female, placed third for Dr. Haag.

Rendition put in a terrific race to win the Open All-Age for Dr. Roger Boser. There were six starters in this stake. Dawson’s High Chaparral was second with a nice forward race for Dennis and Bonnie Hidalgo. Dennis handled the Irish setter male.

Five entries were drawn in the Open Derby. Black Jack of Snowcreek won with a strong and forward race. He was handled by owner Dr. Stan Haag.

Firefly’s Beeline, Irish setter female, was second for Dennis Hidalgo with one find and a good race.

Rosie of Snow Creek, pointer female, won the nine-dog Amateur Shooting Dog for Dr. Stan Haag with two pretty finds and a forward race. Bellwether, Irish setter female, placed second with a nice find and a pleasing race. Bell was handled by owner Dr. Roger Boser.
