We've had some inquiries on what dogs are leading for the Purina Award in regard to Field Champions, Futurities and Derbies. ABBA will honor each class winner in the Derbies. Overall, Derby entries have been increasing.
For the Field Champion Award Grass Lake Lionheart is in the lead with 2 Wins, 3rd and 4th. There are two Males that are tied with a Win and a 2nd. If Bee Lick Braveheart or Close Call Chaplin would win the Northeastern, one of them could win Field Champion Award, as their 2nd beats 3rd and 4th.
The Futurities are still battling for the Overall Purina Award. The 13" Female Winner is Ruppe's Lady Dillon with 4 Wins and breathing down her neck is the 13" Male Winner, Duncan Creek Justin with 3 Wins and a 3rd. The 15" Male Futurity Leader is Tanglewood Banjo with 1 Win and 2 2nd's and breathing down his neck is Mon Valley Ean James B with 1 Win, 2nd and 3rd. The 15" Female Leader is Mon Valley Bryar's Janelle Rose with 2 Wins and a 4th and breathing down her neck is Kop Hollow Harvest Moon with 1 Win and a 3rd.
The Derbies are also having a close race. The 15" Female Derby, R and R Monique has 2 Wins and 2 4ths. The 13" Female Steeler Town Boomin Business has 3 Wins. The 15" Male Derby Contenders are Little Ease Son of Sam with 1 Win and a 2nd followed by Nottingham Slick Willie with 1 Win and a 4th. The two 13" Male Derbies battling it out are R and R McGuyver with 2 Wins and a 2nd; followed by Breath Taker Brock with 1 Win, a 2nd and 3rd.
So as you can see, once again the Northeastern will settle the Purina Award Winners for Derby, Field Champion and Futurities and the ABBA Derby Award Individual Class Winners. We thank everyone for participating and those who made the ABBA Derby Class Winners an added attraction. It has been a tough race and we hope you will come and support the Northeastern. Remember on the derbies we can get 1 Win and up to 40 Points toward our Field Champion Title, as the Derbies are License Trials.
Hope to see you at the Northeastern!
