In America the Kentuckiana Cluster is the second largest cluster in terms of entries in the land, second only to a California cluster in January. About a dozen terrier breeds had their regional specialties (Bedlingtons held their National there), the full roster of big name handlers, and all 28 Terrier breeds were represented in the Group so that says how big it is.

On two of the days Bruce and Curry were the only owner-handler in the Group Ring and on the third day they were joined by the owner-handled Bedlington so not an awful lot was expected in the middle of all those professional handlers. On two days though they were actually shortlisted in the Group so “nice one” for the Glen of Imaal Terrier and congratulations to Ch Coleraine’s Mandalay Royalty.
