Handily winning the Missouri Open All Age stake was Touch's Fire Away, pointer male, owned by Greg and Carmen Adams of Norfolk, VA and handled by Randy Anderson. The pointer male put on a thrilling four find performance with a spectacular race.

Miss Stylin Sue, pointer female, was an obvious choice for second. Sue scored two beautiful finds in which she stood tall until she was collared.

Westfall's River Ice, a pointer male owned by Brad Calkins of Centennial, CO was handled by Andy Daugherty to a very respectable third place finish. He scored four good finds in a hard driving, forward race.

In the Don Fox Derby Haney's Storm Warning, pointer male, was absolutely stunning on the ground and on his two gorgeous, perfectly mannered finds. He was piloted by his trainer, Ike Todd for owner Chris Cagle and son Chris, Jr. of Woodlawn, TN.

Second place went to Knight's Little John, a pointer male who put down a fine all age race with two stylish, well-mannered finds. He is owned by Scott Griffin of Mint Hill, NC and was expertly handled by Ike Todd.

I'm Gallant was third for handler Randy Anderson and owner Jay McKenzie, Eureka, KS. This pointer male turned in a good ground effort and had one find.
