May 2022 – Dual Champion

Luther’s path to a Dual Championship was both a cinderella story and a quintessential team effort.  Due to a uterine torsion he was the only puppy in his litter to survive and it was decided to grow him out to determine his potential, with thanks to the legion of Trax community volunteers who played a role in his foundational development.  Luther was precocious in field ability winning the Western Classic Field Futurity and Open Derby stakes while still puppy age with fully broke birdwork.  He won his first senior stake while still a yearling and special thanks to professional field trainer Todd Yamamoto who handled Luther to his Field Championship with 3 and 5 point Open Gun Dog all breed horseback stake wins. Luther then hit the show ring where he completed his Championship with 3 majors including Best of Breed and Best of Opposite wins with thanks to Holly McKnight and Mike Boyd for show handling help.
