Great Performances ~ Law’s High Noon wins the 2000 Saskatchewan Open Chicken Championship
The 2000 prairie trials were officially kicked off August 27 with the running of the Prairie All-Age Championship Association’s Saskatchewan Chicken Championship and accompanying Derby.
Law’s High Noon
Competing in a strong field of sixty, Law’s High Noon, running in the sixth brace under the whistle of Rick Furney for owners Joe Johnson and Gary Futch of Statesboro, Ga., set the standard for the stake. When it was all said and done, Law’s High Noon stood well above the field and clearly won the 2000 Saskatchewan Open Chicken Championship with a two-find performance on sharptail culminating from an ever-forward, brilliant ground effort which was highlighted by intelligent all-age casts. Especially impressive was High Noon’s biddability and responsiveness at great range. The help of a scout was not required to maneuver High Noon, a spectacularly-made pointer male, across the vast open Mortlach prairies. High Noon joins other great previous winners of the Saskatchewan Open Chicken Championship — Flaming Star, Red Water Rex, The Texas Squire, Buckboard and many other notable winners.
Runner-up Wheelin N Dealin, pointer male owned by Albert and Lois Ann Necaise of Gulfport, Miss., laid down a strong forward all-age race complemented by two good finds on sharptail for handler Colvin Davis. Wheelin N Dealin also demonstrated a desire to go with his handler as very little scouting was required to keep him properly directed in spite of his having to buffet a strong wind.
