In the first open stakes of the fall season here in PA, our derbies are scoring some high quality wins.  Game Winner (Full Blast ex Springfield Show Girl) has won both the Venango Grouse Trial Open Derby and also the Pennsylvania Grouse Trial Open Derby,  “Finn”, black and white speedster, has been not only applying himself in hard driving fashion but doing it with the jump, snap and crack that we have come to insist the dogs we own and campaign must have.  His straight up pointing style has also captured the judges’ attention. Both stakes had double digit entrants that represent the best in our region and beyond.

Only a step behind “Finn” and placing second in the PA Open Derby was our Full Breeze (Full Blast ex Electra).  She too was handled by Dick.  Recall “Bree” won the Grand National Puppy Classic last spring and she continues to impress on the ground and especially on her game.  Credit for “Bree’s” early development goes to our friend Thor Kain.  We should hear much more from this pair going forward.
