GCH Flessner's International S'Cess snagged the honor in the hound group, as the 3-year-old bloodhound edged GCH Sporting Fields Bahama Sands, a whippet, for the top spot. Behind them were a basset hound and Irish wolfhound that finished third and fourth.
In the toy category, it was GCH Marlex Classic Red Glare that came away on top, ahead of a cavalier King Charles spaniel, a pomeranian and pekingese. It was GCH Brighton Lakeridge Encore that won the non-sporting group, as the standard poodle edged a Tibetan spaniel, miniature poodle and Dalmatian.
GCH Riverside Telltail Coco Posh rounded out the day's group results with a victory in the herding group. The Cardigan Welsh corgi was selected ahead of a puli, German shepherd dog, and old English sheepdog for the top spot.
