Judges Critique for GG (BIF FC Jubilee TripleStar Apogee, SC) from the 2016 AWC National Specialty , Dr. Barbara Henderson.
Open Bitches – This class was large
and had thirty-two entries. The winner
of this class was Jubilee Triplestar Apogee
SC, a very elegant brindle parti that caught
my eye as she entered the ring. She did not
disappoint me when she was examined.
She was a substantial female, moderate
with no exaggeration with a pleasing
head and expression. Her topline flowed
nicely into her well let down hocks. Up
and back movement was flawless. Showed
at moderate speed she exhibited an open
easy side gait never letting her handler
down. Balanced front and rear angulation.
Complementary topline to underline. This
was my eventual reserve winner’s bitch and
one that I would like to take home. Her
overall quality was superior.
Well what more can be said? We had a fantastic American Whippet Club National Specialty 2016 in San Diego, CA. In 6-9 puppy dogs, our boy "Aidan" (TripleStar Handsome Devil) was placed 2nd in a lovely bunch of puppy dogs. In 6-9 puppy girls, our 3 pups showed beautifully, "Penny" (TripleStar & Destiny Penny's From Heaven at Pinewood) was wild and joyous, "Wisp" (TripleStar Lighter Than Air) made the cuts to 5th place but ultimately their sister Jazmine (TripleStar & Destiny's Mystic Romance) placed 1st in the class. In American Bred Bitches, "Francie" (Winway Francie Fairchild at TripleStar) placed 2nd in a quality entry. To top all of this off, "GG" (BIF FC Jubilee TripleStar Apogee, SC) placed 1st in Open Bitches and on to Reserve Winners Bitch for a National Specialty major. As a breeder-owner-handler, I could not be more proud of the appreciation and nice comments from judge and fellow exhibitors on all of my hounds. My sincerest thanks to judge Dr. Barbara Henderson of Whippoorwill Whippets for these honors. And as always, a huge thanks to my friends and mentors who have stuck by us.
Francie opted to channel her English Whippet origins for this Best of Winners photo with judge Mr. Irving Bonios at the Kennel Club of Pasadena, CA 5/31/2015. Mr. Bonios had found her before in competition so we can say that his judging is consistent. He definitely likes his job and makes the experience pleasant. Never stop showing for this judge!
At the Pasadena Kennel Club Sunday on 5/29/15 Francie was chosen by judge Mr. Irving Bonios as Winners and Best of winners! She now needs just a major to finish. She always makes me so proud! She also won a ton of goodies in the Southern California Vizsla Club Raffle and Silent Auction to benefit Friends and Vets Helping Pets and Southern California Vizsla Rescue!
Thank you again to Ms. Esther Joseph of Triseter Kennels Australia for this huge honor of Best of Winners Major for Francie!
At the San Gabriel Valley Kennel club on 5/23/15 (Mission Circuit, Pomona CA) - Winway Francie Fairchild at TripleStar was selected for Winners bitch and Best of Winners in an entry of 15 bitches by esteemed Australian judge Ms. Esther Joseph! We worked very hard together as a team for this win and Francie never stopped trying to please her people. Our dear friends cheered for us and that only made her more happy! I could not be more proud of this correct, sound moving, classic blue brindle whippet!
After this awesome win, Francie had her OFA heart echo-cardiogram and auscultation done for 2015 and her heart is absolutely perfect! Perfect eyes and a perfect heart, we could not be more thrilled!
At the Conejo Kennel Club on 4/17/15, Benelli was chosen as Winners and Best of Winners by judge Mr. Jason Hoke from the bred-by exhibitor class. She is truly my heart dog and I love her SO much. Thank you to our friend Toyomi Tsumura for always taking such lovely photos of Benelli!
