TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – Trumpet the Bloodhound won the highly coveted Best of Show honor at the 146th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, New York, besting over 3,500 dogs of more than 200 different breeds for the ultimate prize.
Trumpet the Bloodhound’s selection marked history. He’s the first Bloodhound to ever win Best in Show in Westminster’s 146-year history. A Bloodhound first entered Westminster, the second oldest continuously running sport event in the U.S. behind the Kentucky Derby, in 1978. Broadcasters labeled his win an “upset.”
Trumpet is a 4-year-old from Saint Joseph, Illinois. He’s the son of Nathan, who won the Hound Group in 2014, but Nathan fell short of the grand prize. His son didn’t.
