Redland’s Jacked Up and Glassilaun War Paint Claim Honors

Purina Top Amateur Shooting Dog and Open Derby Award Winners

Redland's Jacked Up

Amateur field trial competition was keen during the 2017-2018 season, evidence of which is the roster of dogs that earned points toward the Purina Amateur Shooting Dog Award.

When the proverbial dust had settled, the top Amateur Shooting Dog is Redland’s Jacked Up, five-year-old white and liver  pointer male owned by Joe and Tricia Rentz of Fayetteville, Ga., and handled by Joe.

“Consistent” might well be the word to describe the Rentz pointer. Jack last year came in second place in this competition in a very tight competitive race between him and the eventual winner, Sugarknoll War Paint.

This year Jack was not to be denied and left no doubt with a dominating 1870 point lead over the second place dog in the standings.

His record in 2017-2018 shows nine placements (mostly firsts) to earn a total 3060 points and the Award.

He placed first in the following Amateur stakes: Georgia Association of Field Trial Clubs, Fort Mill (S.C.) Amateur Classic, Conecuh Station Field Trial Club, Chesterfield Field Trial Club and the Hatchechubbee Club’s John S. O’Neall, Jr. Memorial Amateur Classic.

He placed second in the Flint River “Pat LaBree Memorial” Field Trial Club’s Amateur Stake.

Jack sealed his win of the Award by winning the National Amateur Free-

for-All Championship, the National Amateur Shooting Dog Invitational Championship and the Region 4 Amateur Shooting Dog Championship!

This is the second Purina Award for Joe and Tricia Rentz. Their Rentz’s Fire and Ice won the Top Derby Award for the 2015-2016 season, handled by Jeanette Tracy.


The Open Derby of the Year Award program was equally hotly contested with 53 young dogs earning points toward the Award.

The winner emerged in Glassilaun War Paint, two-year-old white and black pointer male owned by Jamie Nee of Quincy, Mass., and handled by Toby Tobiassen.

Glassilaun War Paint is sired by Sugarknoll War Paint, which won the 2014-2015 Top Shooting Dog Award and the Top Amateur Award for 2016-2017, and finished second in this year’s Top Shooting Dog Awåard competition.

“Bat’s” record shows eight placements: a first in the Smith Derby Classic; first, New England Futurity; first, Garden State Championship Derby; second, Keystone Yankee Derby Classic; third, United States Quail Shooting Dog Futurity; first, Eastern Open Derby; second, Egyptian  Championship Open Derby; second, Michigan Shooting Dog Championship Derby.

All the Purina Award winners will be recognized the weekend of June 22-23 at the Purina Event Center, Gray Summit, Mo.
