Salt x Champ
Spark is a super leader. A crack command leader. At age 3 we can fully rely on Spark to take charge and steer the team as a main leader. Guiding younger leaders around loose dogs and other obstacles. He was incredibly focused as an intense yearling quickly picking up on leader commands as all Salt’s pups do. He works hard and never misses a beat. As a two year old Spark performed like a Champ in his first races. Spark finished his first race while setting a record in the toughest 200 in the state, breaking trail over huge hills in the fresh snow. Spark led all but 30 miles of the 2019 Kobuk 440 with KP. He was having the best race of his career, to date, when he came up with a swollen leg akin to our own arms swelling from repetitive use on the final leg of the race just 30 miles from the finish line. He gave his all and toughed it out before Will decided to load him into the sled. Spark and half sister Lusa were our main finishing leaders in the 2020 race season.
