There are three big trials in North America that pay the biggest money and give the biggest recognition : The National Finals, The Bluegrass, and Meeker. Pleater has won all three but in the last five years there has been a new "Big Trial" - Soldier Hollow. Pleat had never won this one but he had one last kick at the can over labor day weekend. And you know what? He won it. Now he can go out as the only dog ever to have won the big four. We are just a little proud of him and the press couldn't get enough of him.
