EAST WINDSOR, Conn. -- The Northeastern Open Shooting Dog Championship, held Oct.  8-11  at Flaherty Field Trial Area, drew 55 dogs, with one scratch making a total of 54 starters.

Judges were Pat Casey from Virginia, and Kevin Stuart from New York.

Champion was Grand Heritage Motion, a setter male handled by Jeanette Tracy and owned by Bruce Cooper. Motion had five outstanding, beautiful finds and a big forward classy race, always hunting and to the front. Motion also had one heck of a finish with a big forward move down the big edge headed to the top of the hill; he went away fast aand strong. He ran in the 13 brace.

A great combination: Ladywood (Jeanette, Becky and Dillon) and Grand Heritage Kennels.

Special thanks to Jim and Jimmy MacDuff and Fred Bastable
