Day one went to the Nation’s Number One Dog All Breeds, the GWP, Oakley. It’s the second of the week for Oakley who picked up a big rosette in Idaho on Tuesday. That’s a total of 26 this year for Oakley and handler Phil Booth, who have opened a sizable lead on the field here at the midpoint of the season.
