'Jack,' a Pointer, Wins National Field Trial Championship
With “bottom-end” athleticism — that special ability to finish a three-hour all-age horseback stake with the same hard-charging stamina as it began — a striking 6-year-old white, orange and ticked male Pointer called “Jack” aced the 2019 National Field Trial Championship in February at Ames Plantation in Grand Junction, Tennessee. Dunn’s Tried N True, owned by Will and Rita Dunn of Lebanon, Kentucky, and handled by pro Luke Eisenhart of Leesburg, Georgia, proved his keen bird-finding ability with seven finds. “The stars lined up for us that day,” says Will Dunn. “It was a great performance to watch.” Bred by Chris George of Tallahassee, Florida, Jack was sired by the 2015 National Champion, Miller’s Dialing In. Will Dunn started the young Pointer and handled him to three first-place finishes in derby trials before turning him over to Eisenhart. Jack proceeded to dominate, winning four derby championships and his first all-age title, the 2016 Quail Championship, as a first-year dog. With 12 championships and five runner-up championships to his credit, Jack has shown his versatility across venues, winning trials from the Dakota prairies to southern Georgia and the Midwest. Jack is fueled by Purina Pro Plan SPORT Performance 30/20 Chicken & Rice Formula.
