American Field

Flashback . . .

Aug 31, 2018

Only September, but fall is fast approaching and then winter. Turning back the clock some 45 years to 1973, and Waynesboro, Georgia. Pictured here is reporter Bill Allen trying to “dig out” following an unprecedented ice and snow storm during the trials. Forty Grand, handled by the late Bob Lamb, won the Derby Championship that year, and  Oklahoma Flush, owned by General Motors executive Roger M. Kyes, and handled by John Rex Gates, won the all-age Georgia Quail Championship. On the shooting dog side, Elwin and Inez Smith’s white and black setter Tomoka, handled by Harold Ray, won the Georgia Shooting Dog Championship.
