Florida Championship

For The Love Of Dogs (and Quail Hunting)

“A man’s passion for “big-going dogs” sustains the tradition of one of the nation’s toughest field trials on the Florida prairie.”

A wonderfully written story about Ted Baker, Chinquapin Farm an the Florida Open All-Age Championship by Bucky McMahon appears in the November issue of Flamingo Magazine. You can order an issue of the magazine or read it in their online archive here.

And as a sidebar feature of the story, read about our very own Tom Word!



Running Dog


Strideaway is an online publication founded in 2008. We are dedicated to promoting the great sport of American pointing dog field trials, in particular American Field sanctioned trials for pointers and setters. Our objective is to present the voices and ideas of experienced trainers, handlers, breeders and other knowledgeable participants and enthusiasts from the past to the present — amateurs and professionals alike. Whether All-Age or Shooting Dog, Horseback or Walking Trials, we place particular emphasis on wild bird field trials and the dogs that compete in them. We present richly illustrated articles and stories, podcast interviews and other types of media on a regular basis with the hope of providing an ever expanding, searchable archive of information relevant to pointing dog field trials.Read article

This website is dedicated to our ever faithful friend and Strideaway contributor, Bill Allen, whose book The Unforgettables and Other True Fables we published in 2010.
