The Hoffman Amateur was held December 9-11, 2022, on the beautiful grounds at Hoffman, N. C. This renewal began with 12 derby entries and 26 all-age entries. Derek Bonner and Kris Clayton of Mooresboro, N. C., judged the derby stake. Coming out on top of this nice group was Miller's Grey Street, a pointer male handled by owner Dennis Snyder. Second place was I Dream of Jeannie, a setter female owned and handled by Kyle Whitfield. Sweet Grass Skipper, a setter male owned and handled by David Huffine, rounded out the placements.
The judicial responsibilities for the all-age were handed over to Larry Cox of Randleman, N. C., and Zach Bradshaw of Claremont, N. C. Both judges rode attentive to each entry, and their decisions were well received. Mohawk Mill Trail Warrior, a pointer male, came out on top of this good field for owner/handler Gary Winall. Second place was Dry Creek Ares, a pointer male owned and handled by Jeff Smith. Woodville's Saddle Tramp, a setter male with owner/handler Carl Owens, took third.
Many thanks go to our judges and all of our participants. Randy and Marcia Bradshaw did an outstanding job of heading up things at the clubhouse and always providing good food to enjoy. Gary Winall and Ellen Clements provided an outstanding supper on Saturday night in honor of last year's winner, Mohawk Mill Gangster. We appreciate their efforts.
Our sport would be in bad shape if not for the support of Purina. We thank them and Greg Blair for their continued support of this trial.
