Trumpet, a bloodhound, wins Best in Show at the Westminster Dog Show | CNN


Trumpet, a bloodhound, was crowned the Best in Show winner at the 146th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Wednesday night.

The show is the second-oldest continuous sporting event in the US after Kentucky Derby and crowned its winner from among the winners of the earlier best-in-group competitions.

The show began Saturday, and was held at the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, New York, marking its second year at the location instead of its usual home at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The competition was originally relocated due to Covid-19 concerns.

Nearly 3,500 dogs – representing more than 200 breeds and varieties – took part in the competition, according to a news release from the organizers.

The show’s selected finalists represent the best of seven different groups of dog breeds: hound, toy, non-sporting, herding, sporting, working and terrier.

Here’s who won in each of the groups:

Hound: Trumpet the Bloodhound

Toy: Hollywood the Maltese

Non-sporting: Winston the French Bulldog

Herding: River the German Shepherd

Sporting: Belle the English Setter

Working: Striker the Samoyed

Terrier: MM the Lakeland
