Open is a big land quad, two retired, about 8 minutes per dog. Raining this morning and expected rain throughout the day. First series should go into Saturday with 79 starters.
Update; spoke with a contestant at 10:30am cst. None of the first 14 dogs have done it. Two picked up all the chickens but with handles.

Congratulations to Sam and Levi on the Derby win. For those keeping track of Lean Mac line breedings, Levi is out of a half-brother/half-sister mating with both sired by Lean Mac.

How about the Qual?

I know that Ottercreek's Isabella got second in the Q. That's my girl, Bella with my husband, Steve running her. Hoss had an Open jam and I would presume, but don't know for sure that Dillon got a jam in the Am--handles on the last bird. Steve was highly complimentary of the tests in all three stakes that he ran. He was really proud to have two dogs do that big quad in the first series of the Open and to have two of the 11 dogs in the last series of the Am. Memphis really puts on a nice field trial--I would love to have gone, but Eve is doing her long walks for rehab.
Congrats to Jimmy D on Cane's Am win! From what Steve told me, it was one to really be proud just to finish, much less with the blue. Way to go!

I was marshalling at the Q and the tests were nice. First series a triple with a well placed retired up the middle which challenged many of the dogs. Then run a land blind behind the flyer. Water blind over a point for the third. A challenging triple on water for the fourth with a long punch bird up and out of the pond which the dogs lost site of while in the water. Nice tests...thanks Steve and Butch for donating a weekend of your life.
Here are the results:
1st - 46 Sand Valleys Blew Star Scott Butler Greg Lister
2nd - 27 Ottercreek's Isabella Steve Faith Steve Faith
3rd - 14 Coolwater's Ready Set Go Alexandra Washburn-Weidlein
4th - 31 Becky Lou's Bayou Beamer MH Louis and Becky DeJohn Ronnie Lee
RJ - 20 Lucky If He Makes It Jason Fleming Jason Fleming
