WINTERWHIP PETER PAUL MOUNDS
Katie Winters 45 Seca Pl. Salinas, CA 93908 (408)484-1558
1980 TURNED OUT TO BE THE "BEST YET" FOR WINTERWHIP:
My Foundation Bitch, Ch. Ardencaple Winterwhip Diana, earned Kennel Review's Top Producer status with the finishing of Ch. Winterwhip Sterling Silver, Ch. Winterwhip White Gold and Ch. Winterwhip Antique Brass (co-owner, Carol Juelfs - AFFINITY), all sired by Ch. Misty Moor's Chalmondoley; in addition to her earlier progeny, Ch. Winterwhip Snow Cone and Ch. Winterwhip Snow Sundae, sired by Harmony's Snow Dance.
Diana's daughter, Winterwhip Cmdr's Candy Cane (Winterwhip Cmdr. Whitehead
x "Diana"), emerges as Winterwhip's Top Producer with her first litter sired by Blarneystone Alcyon Ryder. In the litter are Winterwhip Peter Paul Mounds, who has a Reserve win and 5 points, including a major, from the Puppy class; Winterwhip Almond Joy, 1st AWC Western Specialty 9-12 mo. class; and Winter- whip's Milky Way, 4th AWC Western Specialty 9-12 mo. class - owned by Mike and Donna Garcia. With Candy's litter, the culmination of 6 years of a thoughtfully planned breeding program, comes a significant breakthrough for WINTERWHIP as far as the achievement of our ideal type, soundness and move ment. These puppies have extreme length of neck and rear angulation, good length of loin and proper topline, together with soundness 'coming and going' and fully extended reach and drive. They are refined, elegant dogs with good bone. They are WINTERWHIP!
Candy's sister, Winterwhip's Cmdr's Cotton Candy, is the dam of Winterwhip Zion's Majesty, winner of the AWC Western Sweepstakes and Specialty Reserve Winners Dog. " Zion" is sired by Ch. Winterwhip Snow Cone and owned by Sue and Gordon Woltzen. " Zion" is a refined, sound, excellent moving male, and together with Winterwhip Peter Paul Mounds, should provide a concentrated gene pool of excellence.
Winterwhip Snow Lion, has overcome a "set-back with the Wicket", is winning again, and well on his way to finishing his Championship -- he needs only a 3 point major to accomplish it. WINTERWHIP is more than pleased by "the Lion's" performance at stud. His young daughter, Winterwhip Santa Barbara ("Lion" x Ch. Winterwhip Snow Sundae), co-owned with Carol Juelfs - AFFINITY, has in a short time earned 9 points. Santa Barbara is a very nice, typy bitch in the WINTERWHIP style -- refined with lots of neck and rear angulation. "The Lion's" 6 month old, red-brindle daughters, Winterwhip the Lion's Pride, and Winterwhip Windsphiel (owners, Ron and Carolyn Elmone), are the Winterwhip Up and Coming Stars for the near future. Their dam is Winterwhip Cmdr's Candy Cane. Both bitches are very pretty, typy and look most promising.
Last but not least, are the 29 Whippet youngsters of the "Diana" daughters, Ch. Winterwhip Antique Brass (deceased), Ch. Winterwhip White Gold and Ch. Winterwhip Snow Sundae. All pups are sired by Winterwhip Peter Paul Mounds. From all indications, "Peter" is a dominant sire. His exquisite type, complete soundness and extreme side movement should prevail. We have great hopes for these puppies.

1980 Whippet Race Performance Summary
by Doug Arthur
A total of 42 National point Race Meets were conducted in the United States and Canada during 1980 drawing 1632 adult starters, or an average of 39 adult starters per NPR.
The following fourteen Whippets won race meets during 1980:
Following are the ratings of the top ten race Whippets for 1980 based upon race results reported in the Whippet Newsletter. The standard ARM point scale was used to arrive at national point assignments:
TOP TEN RACE WHIPPETS--1980
Illusion, Knight Kap, Red Kap, Silverado Sue and Panama Red also appeared on last year's list. A brief description of each of the top ten follows:
JANDALL'S FORMULA ONE, ARM (Topper's Zoro, ARM ex I'm True Tone for Jandall) bred and owned by Randall Robbins of California, "Jumbo" was clearly the standout Whippet racer for 1980. This two-year old blue brindle male won a total of ten NPRs, tying the record set by Van Oorshot's Toro, ARM in 1973. He won nine con secutive meets including victories at Santa Barbara (Western Specialty Meet) and Chagrin Falls, Ohio (Midwest Specialty meet). "Jumbo" possesses incredible finish and is presently rated 12th on the all-time race ratings.
CH. MARIAL'S PADNEYHILL ILLUSION, ARM (Am.Can.Ch. Marial's King Arthur, Am.Can. C.D. ex padneyhill Moonbeam) bred in Canada by Marion Goodwin and owned by Doug and Mary Beth Arthur and Bernice Strauss of Wisconsin. "Louie" is 1980's top dual- purpose champion, finishing his bench championship with his 3rd and 4th majors, including Winner's Dog at the Midwest Specialty. This three-year old black and white was twice clocked at 11.5 seconds for 200 yards at the September Burlington NPR (8.9 seconds at 150 yards). Usually last out of the box, "Louie" is excellent in traffic and has remarkable finish. He is one of six ARMS sired by King Arthur and is now 5th on the all-time race ratings.
EPINARD DALLAS, ARM (Bardon Sara Lawrence, ARM ex Epinard Elsa Love of Hannah) bred by Lynne and Mickey Underwood and co-owned by Ross Dinkins of Texas and Cluiss petty of Missouri. A solid red fawn two-year old male, "Rosebud" has great box- breaking ability and consistent early speed. Won 10 of 22 races against Illusion in 1980. Bears watching in 1981.
REGALSTOCK CIMARRON DEL TORO, ARM (Van Oorshot's Toro, ARM ex Topper's Wistful of Regalstock) was bred by David Rosenstock and Annette McConnell and co-owned by Jo Gore and Jim pence of California. A red-brindle and white parti-color male, Cimarron was the "super pup" of Whippet racing in 1980. Undefeated as a puppy, he came on to win four race meets. He was twice clocked at 11.5 seconds for 200 yards at the August NPR in Burnaby, British Columbia. He is the 7th ARM sired by Toro and also the 7th ARM produced by Wistful. Watch for in 1981!
KNIGHT KAP O'LAZEBROOK, ARM (Ch. Pinetop's opening Knight, ARM ex Love O'Lazebrook) bred by Andrew Bidlingmaier and Anthony Gutilla and co-owned by David Henry and Anthony Gutilla of Ohio. At the age of six "Kappy" continued to win race meets in 1980 and placed second to Formula One at both Chagrin Falls, Ohio and Antioch, Illinois . This popular red-fawn veteran has posted 22 career victories and is now ranked 1st on the all-time race ratings. "Kappy" is one of 10 ARM winners sired by the late Ch. pinetop's Opening Knight, ARM and has become one of the true legends of Whippet racing in this country.
SLADE'S RED KAP, ARM (Knight Kap O'Lazebrook, ARM ex Slade's Edie Ann O'Lazebrook, ARM) was bred by David and Nancy Henry and co-owned by David Gilmore of Illinois. "Reddi" is a solid red fawn 3-year old male. He defeated a strong field at the Amherst, Massachusetts NPR in August and is always a solid threat. "Reddi" is presently 15th on the all-time race ratings.
DON'T BE LATE IN '78, ARM (Challenge To Destiny ex Critter of Destiny) was bred by Louis pegram and owned by Christine Blake of Delaware. " Arnold" is a solid red- brindle 3-year old male who won four NPRs and was one of the top two east coast racers in 1980. Whoo! Whoo!
CH. SILVERADO SUE OF SEA AIRE, ARM (Toppers Zoro, ARM ex Turfside's Butterripple) bred by Joe and Patricia Goss of California and owned by Louise and Nino Spiga of New York. "Suzy" is a solid red-brindle 4-year old and the top-rated race bitch in America in both 1979 and 1980. This popular dual-champion won three east coast NPRs and is now 10th on the all-time race ratings.
WHIRLAWAY'S MR. DILLON, ARM (Ch. Whirlaway's Apache, C.D., ARM, PCC ex Scram Storm Warning) bred by Phyllis Nicholson and owned by Carroll and Ruby Hayhurst of California. "Matt" is a white and brindle 4-year old male who posted three NPR victories in tough California competition in 1980.
REGALSTOCK PANAMA RED, ARM (Van oorshot's Toro, ARM ex Topper's Wistful of Regalstock) the older brother of Cimarron, owned by Robert Bickers of California. "Pulgas" is a 4-year old red brindle and white parti-color male that was raced sparingly during 1980. He is still considered to be one of the best California racers and is 6th on the all-time race ratings.

British Columbia Whippet Racing Club Annual Report - 1980
The 1980 racing season was once again highlighted by the Double-Header Weekend. However, several other events also contributed to making this a memorable year.
Our first race meet of the year was won by Sailaway Dreamer's Dagget who was closely pressed by Ch Swiftsure Happy Daze and Regalstock Demon Red Rum. The Double- Header Weekend saw the emergence of a new star in Jo Gore and Jim Pence's Regalstock Cimarron de Toro. This young male, while still eligible to run in the puppy class, showed great promise and considerable raw power in winning both days' racing. Our final meet of the season saw Sailaway Dreamer's Dagget edge Dennis and Mary Connor's Regalstock Wildwood Lobo (litter brother to Cimarron) by one-half point to win the meet and complete his Award of Racing Merit for happy owners Bill and Donna Jackson and family. In puppy racing, Tillicum Taffy Si Le Avis, owned by the Dymerton family, ran undefeated in our N.P.R. Meets.
Away from the race track, other events kept club members busy during the summer. On July 20th, Beverly McKibbin (Blarneystone Whippets) judged a most memorable fun match for the B.C.W.R.C., memorable in that the entry of 36 whippets was larger than any Championship show held during 1980 in the Province of British Columbia. Bev's winners were: Best Adult - Reigncoast Ringer's Gamble (G. Satte), Best Opposite Adult - Sailaway Rosedda ( S. & J. Oswald), Best Puppy - Alcyon Man in the Moon (C. & C. Hopperstad), Best Opposite Puppy - Fickle Finger of Course (Turpin Jr. & Sr.). Best Champion - Ch Alycon Eleventh Hour (B. & L. Leinbach). The match, held at the home of Bill and Alice Turpin, was then followed by a barbeque which had been well organized by Barry Leinbach, Linda Dano and Tina Dily.
The Double-Header Weekend, as usual, provided considerable social activity for the whippet fancy. On the evening preceding the first race meet, a salmon barbeque was held at the home of Bill and Alice Turpin so club members could meet visiting whippet owners from out of town. Following the first day's racing, a smorgasbord became the target for the whippet owners' appetites. During the dinner, Mrs Jean Balint, the A.W.C.'s West Coast Race Director, presented Bill Turpin Sr. (Grand Paw) with the A.W.C.'s prestigious Certificate of Achievement, much to Grand Paw's surprise and the hearty approval of those gathered. After the second day's racing (once again this year very well organized by the Vancouver Island Whippet Association), whippet owners gathered at the home of Barry and Lorna Leinbach who provided a tasty buffet in the relaxed setting of their large backyard.
The other major event of the past year was the club's demonstration of whippet racing for the half-time show at the Vancouver Whitecaps-Nottingham Forest Soccer Match before 28,000 appreciative fans.
1980 has been a highly successful year for the B.C.W.R.C. All club members are to be congratulated for their efforts in ensuring this success, in particular Lorna Leinbach, who, along with husband Barry, once again ensured that race practices and meets were fairly run and enjoyable to attend.
Bill Turpin Jr. President, B.C.W.R.C.
Bill Turpin Sr was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta in 1907 and lived there until his family moved to Vancouver, British Columbia in 1913. As a high school student, young Bill quickly grew in stature (to six foot five and a half) and in athletic ability where he teamed up to win the city high school doubles championship in tennis and also represented his school in basketball, rugby and sprinting. At the University of British Columbia Bill starred on the varsity basketball team where not only his play but also his good sportsmanship received notice in the local press.
In 1930 Bill joined the Shell Oil Company. The combination of working full- time coupled with the handicap of a recurring knee injury changed his recreational interests to more leisurely pursuits such as golfing, fishing and curling. After marrying Margaret in 1937 and starting a family in 1938, Bill shifted the focus of his spare-time energies once again, this time to coaching and managing community and church basketball and baseball teams.
It was not until 1963 that Bill Turpin Sr saw his first whippet, a pup owned by Bill Jr. and his wife, Alice. Shortly afterwards the Turpins Senior lost their old mongrel pet, and in July of 1964 were given as a replacement by Bill Jr., Alice, and son Jack an eight month old pup, Urray Chieftan. "Chief" was Canada's Number One Race Whippet in 1965 and remained a top West Coast contender through 1967 at which time his eyesight deteriorated rapidly. It was during this time that Bill Sr became "Grand Paw" to the whippet fancy, thus differentiating him from his son, Bill Jr.
The lifelong enthusiasm Grand Paw Turpin had maintained for sports now shifted to the new pasttime of whippet racing. Consequently, in 1966 Grand Paw and Grannie Turpin, along with daughter-in-law Alice, grand-daughter Penny, and four whippets travelled to the Santa Barbara races. "Chief" and the Turpin Juniors "Ember" finished second and third respectively at the race meet, but of greater significance were the promotional efforts of Grand Paw in encouraging people to plan a vacation in British Columbia and attend a race meet whilst there.
That these efforts were successful was attested to by the growth of entries at Vancouver race meetings and the fact that many whippet owners from far afield have visited Vancouver more than once - some on a regular basis. Since 1967 the Vancouver races have been attended by whippet owners from Washington, Oregon, California, Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio, Missouri, Delaware, West Virginia and New York. It was during this period that Grand Paw served as President of the Western Gazehound Club, first President of the British Columbia Whippet Racing Club, and worked as one of three members of the American Whippet Club's National Racing Committee.
Unfortunately Bill Turpin Senior's activities were drastically curtailed by a near-fatal heart attack in 1975. His subsequent recovery, during which time he was dubbed "The Miracle Patient" by his cardiologist, has been steady and positive to the point where he now walks a mile or two most days in the company of one or both of his whippets, Ch Madame Tison of Course and Ch Epinard's Sonny Jim of Course A.R.M. and attends all major whippet functions in the Vancouver area.
His being awarded the sixth American Whippet Club Achievement of Excellence has been a fitting tribute to his efforts in promoting good sportsmanship and good friendship through whippet racing.

In 1962, we bought out first whippet, Seven League Boots, from Lanny Shaw and called her Liza. She was Our house dog and "best love" until we lost her at age 6 years. She had 2 litters for us, a Champion in each. We can document over 50 champion decendants, and there may be more we are unaware of. We realize many other Whippet's made equal or greater contributions to the creation of those champions, but we are especially proud of her role because she was ours and we lo v ed her.
In May of 1980 we whelped a litter by Hound-Hill. Paul Scarlet ex Elysian Escapade. "Liza" appears in the pedigree of that lettet 26 times, and in that litter, after all these years, her look-alike, a small red bitch with identical makings and the same expression and personality. We've named her Elysian Elizabeth .
We present her here, because we are proud of her, indeed.
Congratulations to Frances Hembee's Elysian Glorya Rejoice for her recent wins. Watch for our young black dog, Elysian Summer Storm, Glorya's litter brother.

About 15 years ago we were given our first whippet as a college graduation gift - he turned out to be Ch. Kai-Jai's Adonis. Three weeks later we purchased his half-sister, Ch. Tiercelet Gabrielle, and their one litter produced four champions, one of which was the top producing bitch, Ch. Frankly Beguiling.
Over the years we tried to buy, borrow, or steal Jim Gray's half-sister to Adonis and Gaby, Ch. Elysian Especially. All three were by Ch. Pennyworth Ho Ho Ho, a Fleetfoot son, and the bitches were both granddaughters of Ch. Ravenslodge Solitaire. Jim always turned me down! But, finally- there is an Elysian whippet among the Frankly gang.
Elysian Essentially, our "Boy Named Sioux" - made his match debut at the age of four months by defeating six other pups, all older, and going on to Group IV under noted whippet breeder-judge Larry Shaw. Sioux is co-owned and handled by the newest member of the team - Tommy Smith - who, by the way, also made his ring debut at the same match.
We are thrilled with our new pup!! Thanks, Jim - and Liza!
