# of dogs running FT

I just got my RFTN yesterday. It listed some statistics from 2006. Is that info correct?!?!?!?!? It showed over 15,000 running in Open alone. I was astounded. Just because we have all been watching the Westminster pageant, it raised the question for me, how many dogs compete in the bench venues? I cant believe that there are that many field trialers out there, not to mention the hunt testers, and the ones in the show ring are considered the bench mark for the retriever breeds. Does anyone here know the numbers for the dog show world? Just curious.
Meaningless trivia regards.......
