The American-bred sire producing the greatest number of champion get during this period is Ch. Hetherbull’s Bounty’s Frigate, bred by Roberta Arnold of Butler, New York. He sired 26 champions.

There were four American-bred dams tied for this award, each having a total of five champion offspring. They are Ch. Jo-bob’s Duchess of Prestwick, bred by Louis R. and Joan Sclafani of Copiague, New York; Hetherbull Arrogant Ursula, bred by Jean and Robert Hetherington of Swannanoa, North Carolina; Ch. Bowags Po’lar, bred by Beverly and O’Neill Wagner and William Hinkes of Joppa, Maryland; and Ch. Tomel’s Huston Huzzy, bred by Ralph and Barbara McCollum of Midlothian, Texas.

The Beckett Memorial Award is a breeder’s award, and the Committee therefore wishes to express our congratulations to each of the above breeders. – JRL
