USRCC Memorial Day trials
Last spring, Sonic wowed us by winning back-to-back BIFs at the USRCC Memorial Day weekend... and this year he did it again!!! He won Best of Breed on Saturday for a 5pt major, then went on to win Best In Field in a very impressive runoff. Phoenix ran in the Open stake, but having just come out of season she is going through a hormonal false pregnancy and was not running competitively. She will spend the summer showing and running LGRA and we will try her on the lure coursing field later, once she has matured more and (hopefully) has better focus.
We rested Sonic on Sunday so that I could focus on my apprentice judging and huntmaster duties, but Monday morning Sonic was raring and ready to go, and won Best of Breed over an entry of nine Greyhounds, and then went on to win Best in Field running against multiple BIF winning dogs in what has become his signature style - breathtaking speed, agility and LOTS of stamina!
