Much like a proverbial
flaming star, his field trial performances were brilliant
but often cut very short. This grandson of CH Commander's
Hightone Beau out of Turnto's Hightone Pete and Miss Boo's
Loch, seldom made it around the course yet he had the stuff
legends are made of and won a pair of ALL AGE PRAIRIE
CHAMPIONSHIPS for master trainer/handler Herman Smith of
Alabama as an 8 year old, when the Setter star was waning...
Living until the ripe age of 16, his major contribution to
Setterdom came as a producer. Especially through his
daugthers when crossed onto Mr. Thor and Toronado blood.
Flaming Star was possessed of undiminishable stamina able to
withstand excessive heat and still find birds. He stamped
his get with those qualities plus desire for hunting seldom
seen before him. Everyone thought they broke the mold when
FLAMING STAR was made BUT Harry Bensen/NESNEB KENNELS and
Steve Henrikson/OUTBACK KENNELS of Delaware both carried his
legacy into the future for the rest of us to enjoy!
