2015 Purina Outstanding Amateur Retriever Award
A quick learner and enthusiastic competitor, “Tubb” powered through 17 Amateur stakes to capture the Purina Outstanding Amateur Retriever Award with 36 points in the yearlong competition. Bred by Ken and Brenda Neil of Jupiter, Florida, NAFC-FC Texas Troubador is owned by John and Martha Russell of Gainesville, Texas. “Tubb has been impressive from the get-go,” says Martha Russell, who handled the 7-year-old male to four wins last year, as well as the final series of the 2015 National Amateur Retriever Championship in Ronan, Montana. “He’s a tremendous marker and always is willing to please.” Tubb is fed Purina Pro Plan SPORT Performance 30/20 Formula.
