We are so proud to present our New AKC Field Champion, Best in Field Winning, FC JUBILEE TRIPLESTAR APOGEE, SC - yeah GG!!! She finished with a 4 point major by going Best Of Breed over specials on 5/15/2016. This win comes just weeks after her major win at the 2016 AWC National Specialty. From show ring to field, she does it all! As it should be. Huge thanks to the SoCal lure coursing crews for making these great trials possible! Thank you to judges Mr. Robert Newman and Mr. Frank Yeh for appreciating GG on the field.
The new year has begun and things have been busy here at TripleStar Hounds! We have been focusing on Lure Coursing and Whippets Remington (Ch Lishima's All Fired up at TripleStar, SC, CGC ) and GG (BIF Jubilee TripleStar Apogee, SC) are getting close to finishing their Master Courser (MC) titles. GG is also almost done with her hard-earned Field Championship (FC) and we could not be more proud of her! Billy the Ibizan Hound (Ch Ahram's Rebel Yell at TripleStar, JC) Qualified to course (QC) and earned his Junior Courser (JC) title. He has also been picking up Grand Champion (GCH) points when available at conformation shows.
The American Whippet Club National Specialty will be upon us April 23 through May 1st, 2016, held in San Diego, California. We are gearing up for this big event and very excited to attend. I am the catalog advertising show chair and happy to help. I am also on the committee for the American Whippet Club Western Specialty to be held on July 7th at the new location of Cal State Channel Islands in Camarillo. The entire Summerfest shows will be held at this location instead of the Ventura County fairgrounds for 2016. If it goes well, we will see what will happen location wise for the following years.
Our new show prospects are looking wonderful and have just turned 6 months today. Expect to see them hitting the show ring fairly soon! I will be holding some back to be selectively shown and will proudly be presenting them in the Futurity puppy classes at the 2016 AWC National Specialty.
This year holds much promise! We wish all of our wonderful partners and hound owners the best of luck in everything.
At the Orange Coast Rhodesian Ridgeback Club AKC Lure Coursing Trial on 5/9/15 our little TripleStar Beretta Jetfire Mosaic - "Berry" won the big 5 point major for her coursing debut! Thank you to judges Corey Bowers and Rosemary Marnoch! It was a thrill to see Berry effortlessly fly around the field. Berry is loved and owned by Philip Zobel and Marcella Zobel of GoLightly Borzoi and Mosaic Whippets in Aromas, CA. Needless to say, we are all so proud of her!
Billy Idol - Ahram's Rebel Yell at TripleStar, picked up his third major in San Diego at the Silver Bay Kennel Club under Mrs. Kathy Beliew! We could not be more pleased with this exceptional dog. Billy is a few points away from his AKC Championship. Shown here with a previous win picture with judge :
The day after his birthday on 2/13/15, Billy successfully passed his Qualifying Courser test and received his first point toward his Field Champion and Senior Courser titles! Such a good boy!
Ruger completed his Junior Courser title with ease and beautiful running form. This young man has accomplished whatever we have asked of him with great joy! We wish he had time to compete in lure trials as he is quite keen and fast but he will soon be on his way to his new forever home in Australia. Thank you Colleen Summerfield for the photos!
