Breed Notes for 22.6.17
With the sad events concerning Dog World, I have posted below the Greyhound Notes that were submitted for this weeks edition. I would like to thank all the staff at Dog Word for their support to the showing community over the years. It has been a great pleasure writing the Notes.
I was away for Saturday 10 June judging the Greyhound Club of The Netherlands’ annual club show. The greyhound show is held in conjunction with the East Netherlands Sighthound Club, which hosted classes for Afghans, Pharaohs, Portuguese Podencos, Azawakhs, Galgos, Sloughis and Salukis, and the Irish Wolfhound Club making 9 breeds from the hound group represented. Before coming to the results, I wanted to say how very well the show was organised. The Sighthound Club Chairman, Willem Buitenkamp was very entertaining and hosted me and fellow judges for dinner the evening before the show. I was collected from the airport by Janet and Gerard Bosveld and the Greyhound Club Show was run by Koos Van Der Oetlaar. The venue was at Lelystad race track which was a very well appointed all-grass track which was being used the next day for sighthound racing. Interestingly, there were no greyhounds racing as greyhound owners in Holland tend to prefer lure coursing ahead of racing. This meant the racing was confined to other sighthound breeds. Lelysed is a delightful seaside town about 40 miles east of Amsterdam.
CAC dog and BoB was Barbara Thiel’s NL Ch Tahuara’s Conversano (Sobers Cadiac ex Tahuara’s Autumn Sun). CAC bitch and Best Junior in breed was Melanie Woltersdorf’s Rumford Ultramarin (Mariki’s Pequot of March-Hare ex Rumford Silvretta). The reserve CAC’s went to, in dogs Sasha Terwel and K Van Gemert’s NL and Sw Ch Grandru Newton (Aryal Aroi Double Down ex Am Ch Grandcru Stag’s Leap With Mistweave) and in bitches Ingrid de Prins’ Artefakt Nikita at Cassie’s Time (Artefakt Deluxe ex Bluemoon Serebro at Artefkt). BV was Barbara Thiel’s NL Ch Rumford Rollercoaster (Sobers Ibicus ex Joasis Sand In My Shoes). Away from the group ring I was pleased to see that Alice, Koos granddaughter won the junior handling with their Ransley Simply a Treasure under judge Mrs Bussenmaker.
An interesting aspect of the show was that BoB was not judged until before the BIS in the big ring at the end of the day. I thought that this was an interesting way of keeping exhibitors interested during the day. The group judging was shared between the breed judges and the greyhounds I put through did well winning Best Junior in Show under Mr Tesics (from Hungary) and Best In Show under Frans Gerritsen. I judged the best brace in show and this went to the greyhound brace.
Greyhounds were judged at Three Counties without CCs on Friday 9 June by Michelle West. BD and BoB was Claire, Liz and Mia Millward and Linda Race’s Windspiel Northern Scribe For Alouann (Estat Classic Windancer At Windspiel ex Ch Windspiel Northern Stylo). BB was Kay Vernon’s Artefakt Gala (Rus Ch Artefakt Dominant ex Rus Ch Artefakt Legacy). Reserve BD was Daren and Alayna Allen’s Zoraden Love Man (Ch Boughton Brigadier ex Mistweave Miss Sunshine At Zoraden) and reserve BB and BP was Denise Isaac’s Jet’s Midnight Sonata For Blakeskerra (Multi Ch Sobers Vagabond ex Multi Ch Jet’s Moonlight Serenade). Denise’s pup went on to take the puppy group under Gavin Robertson and BPIS under Mr M Armstrong – well done on a fantastic achievement.
At Newmarket & District KC on Saturday 10 June, Carita Toikka & Mrs S Norhio-Hanski’s Int / Fin / Sw / Est Ch Sobers Nobilia (Multi Ch Showline Sporting Trophy A Sobers ex Ch Sobers Idelia) won BoB under Claire Millwood and G1 under Maggie Holder. In addition, she won best Hound Veteran and reserve Best Veteran in Show. Maria and Carol Hill’s Zoraden Your Precious Love at Simmeree (Ch Boughton Brigadier ex Mistweave Miss Sunshine At Zoraden) was BPIB and PG4. Litter sister Zoraden My Girl at Chosovi owned by Jody Cutter and Hadley Lubin, won a big Puppy Stakes class at the show.
On Sunday 11 June at the Hound Association of East Anglia Zoraden Your Precious Love at Simmeree was BoB, BP and RBIS. Zoraden My Girl at Chosovi was RBoB and won the RBoB winners class. The breed judge was Glen Dymock and BIS judge was Mandy Dance.
