    Default Mid Illinois

    Open - double and blind. Marks go down, pull dog off and run blind up the middle, then pick up the marks. Dog had to go through a pond for all three birds - thank goodness. Very hot and windy.

    Callbacks to water blind: 1 13 14 17 18 21 23 24 31 34 35 38 39 42 44 50 51

    Rotation will be #54

    Heard that the Derby was called after 3 series with only 5 dogs left.

    Five dogs left after the 3rd with a 33 dog Derby
    entry? That's one way to encourage people to remain in the game!

    It is if you are one of the 5.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    No pal...were you? I have recently run again several of these dogs having a Derby dog that aged out on 6-25. I know that it was a strong field and I'll be very curious to see who the 5 were that finished and what the placements were.

    Bev has been in the game a long time also. And she has helped out new amateurs as well. I think the point is is that usually we try to keep as many playing in the minor stakes as possible. This was one tough derby. While I didn't run it, I know someone who did. 50% of the dogs were lost in the first series. I am not sure where all this hostility is coming from.

    There really is no need for personal attacks.
