Bella Bulli First in the Amateur Shooting Dog Stake; Second in the Open Shooting Dog Stake

Seven Valleys, Pa. — The Mid-Atlantic Red Setter Club trial was conducted April 5-6 on the beautiful rolling countryside of southern Pennsylvania. We are grateful to our fine slate of judges: Steve Boyer, Daren Boyer, Mervin Eisenhart, Eric Russell and Dave McKay.

The judges commented on the high quality of the prospects in the Puppy Stake. It was especially elating to see the placement by 13-year-old Taydem Boyer who placed a puppy owned and worked by her. The announcement was greeted with a round of applause.

Mike Tracy won the Open Shooting Dog with Greg Strausbaugh’s recent acquisition Sand Mountain Icy which had two good finds and a strong classy race. Consistent competitor Bella Bulli was second with several great finds. Pack’in A Punch completed the placements.

Bella Bulli came back to win the Amateur Shooting Dog with two finds. Second was Calico’s Mr. Wonderful with a two-find performance. Roger Dvorak took third with first year dog Storm Rider with three finds.

Gratitude took the blue in the Amateur Derby with two broke finds and a strong classy race. Second was Calico’s Country Strong with three clean finds. Third was White Knuckles with several finds.
