The Poeta Trophy
The Poeta Trophy, is offered by Louise Hoelscher (Poeta Whippets), in celebration of Windwalker Born in the USA, "Poet", who went undefeated, as a First Time Entered (FTE), to win the 2002 WRA National Race Meet.
Its purpose is to reward a young dog's first foray into adult racing, and at such a competitive event as a National meet. It will be given, at each years national, to the High Scoring FTE, who has never run as an adult in any of the racing venues.
It was first presented in 2003.
