Numbers for the Golden Retriever National Specialty to be held in Lost Hills, CA on October 8-10:

OPEN: 43
AMATEUR: 54
QUALIFYING: 34
DERBY: 18

But you can probably take a couple off of each stake because you can bet my girls will come in season the day of the trial. :)

Good luck Melanie. I was thinking about taking my Ruby and running the derby but California is a long trip. I am sure it will be fun.........

Thanks for the post Melanie. I like these numbers a lot better than last year! Do you know Jake's #'s? Is it a dow start?

Tell me about it! I had to scratch Spinner from Northern Cal's trial because she came in Wednesday. At No. Cal's spring trial, she came in between the land marks & land blind! I'm leaving Amy with Mike because she's also due in shortly and perhaps I can stave her estreus off for a bit. Hopefully when she comes in I'll be able to get the breeding made that I've been working on.
Tiny numbers this time around--everybody afraid of earthquakes, 90+ degree weather, and forest fires?

I don't have the running order yet but will let you know when I get it. Yes, DOW for the all-age stakes.

But does she have a name yet? :D

Just pulled out my catalog from the last time the National Specialty was in our region...Albuquerque in 2001. Entries there were:

OPEN: 35
AMATEUR: 44
QUAL: 47
DERBY: 21

Interestingly enough, it looks like we have another real "young dog" Derby this year. In Albuquerque 1st place went to a 15 month old, 2nd place to a 12 month old, 3rd place to another 15 month old and 4th place to a 17 month old (who also got a Qual 3rd--go Rev!).

That was their plan. They are coming down after running the Canadian National Open.

There are probably rooms available at both the Days Inn and Motel 6 in Lost Hills. It's easy to check online!

Miriam,

Even if Lost Hills motels fill up, there should be plenty of others within a 20 minute drive. Bakersfield is only1/2 hour away. Bryan Clasby is the property manager and he knows all the great places to eat in the area. I know from going to graduate school at SUNY Albany that the Northeastern palate is not attuned to the Mexican food of the area, but there are some great BBQ places. Ask Bryan if you come out.

Also, there is a field trial before the Golden Specialty if anyone wants to get an early start. I think the entries close next weekend. I will be up there that weekend.
