Jen and Blake Finished the Race and Set a New Record!

March 14, 2008

Blake and Jen FrekingJennifer and Blake Freking have finished in 50th and 51st place in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race and set a new record for Siberian Husky teams racing in the Iditarod. Blake’s Siberian team finished the race in 11 days, 21 hours, 40 minutes and 36 seconds–sliding past the previous record set by Shawn Sidelinger in 1998 of 12 days and 8 minutes.

An all Siberian Husky team was once the standard in sled racing, but it has since fallen to the leaner, agile hybrid Alaskan Husky and other mixed breeds made up of greyhounds, labs, and pointers.

Stunt Puppy is proud of Blake, Jennifer, their dogs performance, and their perseverance in the face of grief. Being a part of Blake and Jennifer’s amazing journey across the Alaskan trail has truly been an honor.
