BLOOMINGDALE, OHIO -- The State of Ohio March weather often is unpredictable, possibly with sunshine, rain, snow and varying temperatures. This year was okay, temperatures in the 50s with sunshine to start on Sunday and then a little uncomfortable for the judges on Monday with cold rain that morning to complete the Open Shooting Dog. The judges decided to wait and start the Derby on Tuesday; the weather forecast of sunshine was more favorable.

With all the necessary "paper work", being new to the position of secretary for the field trial, there were several individuals who "gave freely of their advice and help" -- Mary Jo Trimble, Steve Ralph, Lisa Pollock, and Chris Rider regarding the ABC, AKC and Field Dog Stud Book registration and recruiting judges, etc. for the event at Mingo Sportsman Club grounds in Bloomington, Ohio. Thank you!

With regard to the actual event, it was a success. Twenty-one dogs were entered in the Open Shooting Dog and 13 in the Derby. A few less than participated during the 2018 events.

With the help of the following individuals the event was completed in a timely manner: Gene Stewart, bird planter and dog wagon driver par excellence; Jack and Crystal Alexander, marshals, bird planters, providers of water, and hay; Tom Tracy, laying out the continuous course. Bill McLewis cooked breakfast, lunches, and dinner Monday evening.

The Pennsylvania Brittany Championship Association (PABCA) and the American Brittany Club also wish to recognize and thank Nestl Purina for their continued support of this ABC Championship both with funding and dog food. We recognize their continued cooperation and sponsorship of this American Brittany Club event. While the monetary support helps the clubs, quality of the dog food helps us keep them in a competitive condition.

Rodney Clagg of Bellville, Ohio and Stan Williamson of Lewiston, Mo., were in the saddle to judge the field of 21 entries from professional trainers Tom Tracy, Jr. and Diane Vater, as well as amateur handlers Vince Anderson, John Bell and John Perry.

Starting day, Sunday, was in the 50s with sunshine; the next day was much cooler weather and rain. The event proceeded "smoothly" with three continuous courses, which allowed for a quick change to occur between braces.


The winner came from brace No. 1, Roustabout All In (aka Al), five-year-old male owned by Bo Ackerman of Clermont, Ga., and handled by Tom Tracy, Jr. Al was sired by Maxwell's Outer Limits, his dam Cedar Valley Lilly.

Runner-up was Marjo's Leftover (aka Haley), handled by John Perry for owner Danielle Perry of Claymont, Del. Haley is a ten-year old female sired by Marjo's Red Rum, the dam Elyssa's Allie Baba. Of note is the fact that Haley won the Shooting Dog Championship last year (2018).

Making a strong performance was coming three-year-old in July Saradac's Dangerous Diamond Caper, sired by Diamond Hill Dangerous Man; her dam is Kinwashkly Stolen Diamond. Also in the mix was Kashmir, five-year-old male handled by Tom Tracy, Jr. for owner Dr. Bob Rankin of Edmond, Okla.
