WCA Hall of Fame 1990

The pride of Pete and Dot Ogilvie, King compiled an impressive record in WCA National Field Trials, where he recorded five of his ten placements – all of the five blue ribbons. After topping the National Open Derby Field in 1951 and gaining his Bench Championship a year later, this remarkable dog reached the pinnacle in 1954 by capturing the inaugural WCA National Open Championship recognized by American Field, in the process becoming the breed’s first Dual champion. In addition to these laurels, King also was the first dog to retire a National Trophy, taking firsts in ten Amateur All Age stakes of 1952, 1955 and 1956. Son of the 1959 National Open All Age winner, King in turn sired FT Ch. Grafmar’s King’s Aide, titleholder of both the 1959 Open and Amateur Championships. Overall, his producing record lists 19 winners with 74 recognized placements.
