Silken Windhounds Become ASFA’s Newest Provisional Breed!

Silken Windhounds are the newest breed to be accorded ASFA provisional status, the next step on the process to becoming a fully eligible ASFA lure coursing breed!

The Silken Windhound breed entered provisional status on March 1, 2012.  According to a recent ASFA clarifying policy, the provisional classes in which a provisional breed may compete at an ASFA Trial are the open stake, field champion stake and veteran stake.  Results from the classes shall be recorded and published as provisional open, provisional field champion and provisional veteran.

Eligibility to enter the provisional field champion class will be based on points and placements earned during the provisional recognition period that would otherwise entitle a hound of a breed fully recognized by ASFA to be awarded an ASFA Field Champion title.

Congratulations to all the Silkens and their owners who have come out in record numbers during the two-year period the breed has competed in Limited Stakes competition!!!
