CH. VILMAR’S LUCKY
CH. VILMAR’S LUCKY – (Ch. Captain Speck x Vilmar’s Patty) (1952 – 1966) Bred, owned and handled by APC Hall Of Fame member Mary Ann Wadsworth (Rich), this marvelous liver and white dog won four consecutive APC Specialty Best Of Breeds, a record unmatched to this day. The first of these wins came in 1954 under Paul Palmer from the classes and his fourth was from Mrs. Dodge, both members of the APC Hall of Fame. “Lucky” was shown 40 times; his achievements include winning 38 BOB’s, 28 Group 1’s, 8 other Group placements and 12 Best In Shows. His breeding is very strong in Herewithem on both sides plus Post Road back to forebears of Ch. Governor Moscow and American lines all the way back to Manitoba Rap and Fishel’s Frank. Mary Ann considered him her “once in a lifetime dog”, “an elegant and breathtaking mover.” Dr. Robert F. Parker (HOF) felt that Lucky was the most properly built pointer of all. Bred very sparingly, he is the sire of 3 champions and through Ch. Kenmure’s Rarity is in the pedigree of Ch. Truewithem A Taste Of Triumph, Ch. Marjetta National Acclaim, Ch. Cumbrian Black Pearl and DC Woodspoint Remington, CD MH VAX, all in the Hall Of Fame.
