Madison Square Garden and the Westminster Kennel Club.

Westminster Kennel Club is America’s second longest continuously held sporting event, after the Kentucky Derby. For all of its 135-year history, this classic event, now often referred to simply as “The Garden,” has been held in New York City, although not always at the same address.

The first dog show sponsored by the gentlemen who called themselves “the Westminster Kennel Club” was actually billed as the First Annual New York Bench Show of Dogs and was held in 1877 at the Hippodrome at Gilmore’s Garden, on Fourth Avenue between 26th and 27th streets. For many years, the Harlem Railroad had operated an office at that address, and the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad had a passenger station there until 1871, when Grand Central Station was completed at 42nd Street. more

Jenny shares a bit of what that looks like in Pilar Kuhn’s latest podcast for Best In Show Daily. It takes a whole team of people, and, of course, problems arise. That never seems to prevent the Wornalls from going home with some very nice, often BIS, wins. play
