Super Storm Cliff came back on day 2 of the Mountain View BDC trial and set the standard for the field in the Open Derby. Sunday, October 17, was an overcast morning but that didn’t dim Cliff’s desire, effort or competence. He ran stronger than he did the previous day in placing in the amateur shooting dog stake and he rang up 4 sharply executed, mannerly finds to win the event.
With his second performance on these grounds in two days, Cliff showed even more confidence as he reached boldly when the cover allowed. His demeanor on his four finds was also bold. It was a thrilling performance for a young setter really reflecting his genetics (thank you Blast Zone and breeder Jeremy Estep) and training (trainer/handler, Thor Kain).
