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 Champion, 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 a strong. He ran in the 13 the brace.

Runnerup Champion was Great River Ice, pointer male handled by Mike Tracy and owned
by Brian Sanchez of Great River Kennels. Ice was in the 18th brace and had eight beautiful finds with a lot of style and intensity, two backs and a great forward race always hunting and to the front.

Judges said very little separated these two dogs as both dogs did an outstanding job and were
exciting to watch.
