Westminster Dog Show - Bourbon Wins!

Postby Elyse » Tue Feb 11, 2020 11:23 am

Congratulations to Gr Ch Bourbon (Pinnacle Kentucky Bourbon)! She won the Hound Group last night at the Westminster Dog Show! We can all root for her to win Best in Show tonight.

Ch Starline’s Chanel was the last whippet to win the Hound Group in 2010.

Yes! And for further history, a Whippet has won Best in Show there only once, Ch. Courtenay Fleetfoot of Pennyworth, back in 1964 :) Good luck to Bourbon!

And last night she was awarded Reserve Best in Show - not bad!

While I was hoping for her grand win, I am quite satisfied with reserve since there will not be a ton of publicity about the breed and an emergent whippet fad to feed illicit breeders.

That’s right - number 2 is perfect. It’s a big honour but not too much publicity for our breed.
