|Jørgen with DKJCh Agertoften Jalco
|Jørgen started his field trial career in 1966 with an English Setter (getting 2nd in an Open) but
only a couple of months later acquired his first pointer Gitte who was by Torsmarks Gun (Boga
King - Alsbjergs Centa) - Thea (Frydenlunds Gut - Fugledes Karen). A few years later he got
his first great pointer Riff 13014-71C who was by Oksby Fly (Ferreos Tom - Oksby Emilie) -
Tessa (Riskærs Haj - Torsmarks Sue). Riff was a stunning looking dog with great abilities and he
became one of the matadors of Danish pointer breeding. He also had a great impact on the breed
in Holland. Riff is found behind a huge percentage of Danish pointers today, incl. Agertoften.
|Jørgen had further success with some of Riff's progeny, including a strong bitch called Sabina
(who officially became known as Sadina, because of a spelling mistake in her pedigree).
She was a great bird finder who hugely impressed the likes of the visiting Swedish judge Ivan
Swedrup, who gave her a 1st Open. Though the best known Riff offspring Jørgen got in a
superb male called Alsbjergs Don (sometimes referred to as Alsbjergs Dan). Among many top
performances Don won the 1977 Danish Derby in very convincing manners. Don also sired
several good dogs, without getting up to his father's matador status. Don's progeny included
Boga Ambassadeur (sold to Finland), Linka (Henning Mørk) and Jørgen's own Pigas Katja.
