You got it bad Alex. I apologize if UJ had anything to do with this addiction...

UJ is responsible for this addiction. But that's ok, it's what I love about the place.

My boy Touch’s Gallatin Fire (Bob) got 3rd at the Ricky Chism Memorial Derby. Glad he finally got a placement, now I’m hoping he will get on a roll.

My Touch’s Gallatin Fire picked up another placement today, a 3rd at the KY Quail Classic derby. Proud of him and congrats to his trainer/handler Ike Todd.

Congrats, Alex. I am afraid you stayed at the dance too long. You are hooked now. Ike will do right by you, he is as good as it gets at dog training.

Thank you, Dave. Hook, line, and sinker! You are correct about Ike, it's pretty remarkable what he can do with a dog and a horse.

Yes, right now the GA Derby Ch and W TN Trials are on the calendar. The W TN Trials run during Ames and is only 20 or so miles away so riding some braces at Ames is also on the agenda.

Another outstanding job by Ike Todd. My dog Touch’s Malcolm Story got 2nd at the American Quail Classic Derby. Ike also won first place with Dr. Corder's dog Game Warden.

I am extremely proud of my dog Bob (Touch’s Gallatin Fire) and his trainer/handler Ike Todd. They just won the GA Derby Championship. This is a big win and he’s now half qualified for Ames.

Congratulations Alex. There are few if any championships more prestigious than the Georgia Derby Championship. It sounds like Ames could well be in your future.

Thank you Dave and Mike!

 

It’s pretty surreal and feels a lot like beginners luck on my part, but I’ll take it.
