    Retriever News publishes the judging ratings for each dog for each series -- fair, good, excellent. You can count the excellents and the goods to determine pretty much the overall performance as rated by the judges.

    now you want a Reserve JAM for the National ? all it ends up doing is to give the armchair Monday crowd some fodder to scrutinize the judges...it would carry zero AA points so why bother ?

    I agree with Bon. There is one winner and there are finalists who made it to the end. There are no runners up nor placements. I think that is how it should be.

    As I said, read the evaluations when they are published in Retriever News and figure out who you think might have been in the running... but was not #1.
