John Hogan’s Boy has done it again – won first place for his handler, Ernest Allen of Malakoff and his co-owners, A. J. Knight and W. P. Hogan of Rockdale.

John Hogan’s Boy, an orange and white pointer male coming five years old, was declared winner of the Southwestern Championship Stake and the $1.250 purse at the Arkansas Field Trial Association’s 19th annual event.Ernest Allen and Hogan's Boy dec 1967

The field trial was held four miles southwest of Boonville, and the award was made late Tuesday afternoon, November 29.  The courses were laid out over the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission’s 12,500-acre refuge near Boonville.

Hogan’s Boy has been competing one and a half years and made his initial start in Arkansas last year in the all-Age Stake.  In his short term of competition, he has won first place three times in six events.

Allen had six entries in the three stakes – two in the Derby, three in the Championship and four in the All-Age Stake, which event was expected to finish early this week.  He has been a professional handler for twelve years.  The all-Age Stake had 69 entries.

Hogan’s Boy has been competing this week in the Central U. S. field Trial at Ardmore, Oklahoma, with a $2,800 guaranteed purse.
