Annie wins again at Waingake trial

Going the right way: Annie Flood and her dog Scott have things under control in their run in the short head and yard event at the North Island and New Zealand sheep dog trial championships at Pouawa.

THE penultimate Poverty Bay centre dog trial of the season was held at Waingake last Friday and Saturday and Annie Flood and her dog Scott scored another outstanding win.

Annie beat out the highly performed John Macpherson by half a point to win the long head.

Bob Bryson picked up another win, in the short head and yard.

Graeme Cook was a standout in the zig zag hunt, with Ned George consistent again.

“Overall there was a great turn out, with good entries and beautiful weather on both days of the trial. The food was delicious that the ladies in the kitchen put on,” said trials spokeswoman Maria Jeffery.

“All four courses were set up very well and the sheep climbed well on the hunts and the heads.

“Well done to Annie Flood for another great win and great to see this woman dominating the men.”
