1X CH, 1X RU CH Worsham’s Silver Streak (“Rex”) Notable Quotes Joe Worsham He was a true prairie dog…I ran him fearlessly in “Open” and “Amateur” competition. His win at the 1998 Mid America Open All Age Championship was very special…He drew the first brace after lunch…it was 85 degrees. He ran to the extreme on the Rafter J prairies and found 3 covies of birds – his last coming at pickup time and ¼ mile to the front…
1X CH, 1X RU CH Worsham’s Silver Streak (“Rex”) Rex was a pick of the litter pup for Ferrel Miller. Clifton Gardner had carted the whole litter to Miller’s farm to show them off and Miller said that the solid white pup just stood out head and shoulders over the rest as Miller put his claim on the pup. A while later Miller let Joe take the pup. Miller’s usual cryptic style is showcased in the note displayed on the next slide.

3X CHDelaware River Jackpot (“Lucy”) Quotes Josh Palmer • “Her impact on the sport will not be measured through her progeny as none exist, rather her impact can be measured by the requirement to work harder, train harder and compete harder that she inspired in any competitor… that set out to win against her.” • She was an early starter as Josh Palmer points out: “Her most special moment came … when… she won the AFTCA National Walking SD Championship at the tender age of 2 yrs 5 mos.”
