Arcadia Derby good for Hank and Sandy

Our derby prospects delivered solid performances at the Arcadia FTC event in Exeter, RI, September 18, 2022. Super Storm Hank and Super Storm Sandy were 2nd and 3rd respectively in the amateur derby. Both dogs displayed the requisite drive and class that you’d need to see in a young prospect. Hank, a strapping 55 lb. boy who earlier won the Grand National Grouse Puppy Classic, has the smooth gait and high carriage that makes you pay attention to him on the move. He pointed quail with high style on both ends and was steady to wing and shot on his find. Hank has come along readily in Thor Kain’s summer training program and that work showed itself in his performance.

Super Storm Sandy (Ch. Blast Zone ex Gold Rush) also had clean birdwork coupled with a very classy hunting effort to garner 3rd in this competitive stake. She’s not as big running/wide ranging a dog as her kennelmate, Hank, but she drove hard to the various objectives and exudes class in her every move.
