Super Storm Nell, Jeremy Avery’s young derby, got off to a solid start in her first derby event as she placed 2nd at the Setter Club of New England Open Derby, August 29, 2020. Adam Dubriske handled Nell for Jeremy. “Nell”, sired by Blast Zone, was bred by Jeremy. Bob Watts picked up Nell as an 8 week old pup and started her at his kennel partnered with Thor Kain. “Nell” showed strong potential. At about 6 months of age, Jeremy called and said he loved his pup from the litter and wanted us to look at her as he felt his pup deserved a shot at going to the top trials which Thor and Bob attend. We were highly impressed with the pup when Jeremy sent us video. We switched pups, “Nell” went to Jeremy and “Liz” came to Bob and Thor. This was a good move for both dogs as “Nell” won the Ridgerunners Amateur Puppy in the spring of ’20 to verify her ability and “Liz” just won the Mohegan Open Derby. Everyone is happy for these two young females.
Also, in the same open derby stake, Doug Dix placed his female also sired by Blast Zone. Details on “Suzie’s” performance weren’t available at the time of this report. Good luck to this duo throughout the fall.
