LexusLexus Risky Run for Gold
Owner/Handler: Jeremy Hoyt
575 BDC Points
2 SM wins
29x Champion
Legendary Status Champion

Every competitive upland game hunter starts out in the game with high expectations, usually with a puppy that shows big potential.

For Jeremy Hoyt, it was his new Risky Raider female Labrador Retriever that would make him a name in the game.

Lexus Risky Run For Gold dominated the late 1990’s in the flusher division, winning puppy titles and High Point awards. She also won the hearts of the “new class” of competitors that had the great opportunity to handle her in the field.

She showed the desire to work for the gun like few dogs ever have or ever will, and changed the game with the ability to handle between two hunters and retrieve to each with ease.

Over her career she whelped some of the top litters, and is the mother to some of the best Labradors in the game today.

Her focus on the job at task never faltered. Her drive, consistency, quick retrieve, and incredible nose for birds were her best attributes.

Lexus Risky Run For Gold made Jeremy Hoyt the great player he is. She changed the way the game is played and she will never be forgotten. Lexus enters the “BDC Hall of Fame” a Legendary Status Champion with 575 Champion points, and a 29x Champion who has won 2 Super Major Titles.

National Bird Dog Circuit

16 hours 45 minutes ago

It is impossible to forget a dog that has given someone so many special memories. Ken and Mary Sweeney and their girl, JayDee, are no exception to this. Ken knew early on that he had something special in JayDee and loved to compete with her. He especially enjoyed the privilege of competing with her alongside Mark. Unfortunately their time was cut short as JayDee succumbed to liver cancer. JayDee earned 173 Champion Points in her short career, she was the 2014 Amateur Dog of the Year, and she was also the 2014 National Puppy Champion. She was paving the way to a very promising career. She was a special dog in the BDC and an even more special dog to the Sweeney's. Please keep them in your thoughts as they mourn this loss. RIP Sweet JayDee.
