Pat's ability to develop a young dog is certainly proven by years and years of winners bred and handled by him to a load of trial placements! Congrats to Nebraskan Steve Auxiere who owns Scoot and could not get away from work to handle him in this field trial. Steve has been winning with his dog on the Midwest circuit.
Congrats to the other finalists and those placing their Derbies in this stake. It isn't easy to win a Futurity which validates your breeding and the selection of sires and dams.
Looking forward to seeing these dogs mature and continue their winning ways.
