Beatrice Brown Memorial Trophy

Best of Breed at National Bench Specialty

Through the generosity of its members and friends, the English Springer Spaniel Field Trial Association offers the Beatrice Brown Memorial Trophy, a Pewter Plate and Ladle. This trophy will be awarded to the English Springer Spaniel that wins Best in Specialty at the ESSFTA National Bench Specialty. For permanent possession, the trophy must be won three times by the same owner, not necessarily with the same dog. In 1990 this trophy was re-donated by Delores Streng and Celie Florence after their dog CH Telltale Royal Stuart won the National in 1987, 1989, and 1990. This trophy was again re-donated in 1997 by Gary Zayac when he co-owned both CH Springquest ‘N Ridgewyn Vision, who won the National in 1992, and CH Ridgewyn Legacy, who won in 1996 and 1997. Gary also elected to continue the history of this challenge trophy. The trophy will remain in the Association’s permanent possession until retired.
