Inola, Okla. — The Cecil Proctor Open All-Age and Lee West Open Derby began on February 27 at the famed McFarlin-Ingersoll Ranch in Inola, Okla. The Open All-Age saw 26 starters brought to the line from handlers Allen Vincent, Andy Daugherty, Randy Anderson and Travis Gellhaus. Nine dogs made up the field of the Lee R. West Open Derby.

Brandon Johnson of Guthrie, Okla., and Tom Curtsinger of Collinsville, Okla., judged both stakes.

Owner Dan Hensley of Claremore, Okla., was in the saddle to watch his pointer male Lester’s Jazz Man win the Cecil Proctor Open. Randy Anderson handled the sleek white champion.

Jazz Man is no stranger to the winners’ circle at Inola, having claimed multiple victories at the ranch over the last few seasons.

Westfall’s River Ice claimed second for handler Andy Daugherty and owner Brad Calkins. Daniels Creek Whitehawk was third. He was handled by Travis Gellhaus for owner Terry Reinke.

The Cecil Proctor was supported by Greg Blair and our friends at Purina and we certainly appreciate their support.

The Lee R. West Open Derby accompanied the Cecil Proctor. From the nine entries that made their case to claim the top spot, Hackberry’s Chris Kyle, handled by Allen Vincent and owned by Vic and Kirby Little, was named the winner. Hush Money, owned by Jay McKenzie and handled by Randy Anderson, claimed the second spot. Marse Jeremiah, also handled by Randy Anderson and owned by Leon Bechet, picked up third place.

The 2017 Cecil Proctor Open All-Age and Lee R. West Open Derby were a tremendous success.

The field trial was enjoyed by all in attendance. We are blessed to have such a tremendous venue to run the trial and we thank Win and Kay Ingersoll for the continued support of this trial and so many others.

The trial would not have been possible without the help of the dog wagon driver Aaron Allard. As always we are grateful for the contribution of the judges.

Finding judges is one of the most difficult aspects of putting on a trial and we always appreciate their willingness and sacrifice. Juli Johnson also deserves much credit for making sure that no one went hungry.

We look forward to seeing everyone  at the 2018 Cecil Proctor.
