Since then she has bred more than 158 Pointer Champions, nine Best in Show winners, a National Specialty winner, and Ch. Marjetta National Acclaim, the Westminster Best in Show winner in 1986. She also breeds English Cocker Spaniels. A former AKC-licensed handler, she became a judge in 1981. Martorella is approved to judge the Sporting, Hound, and Working groups, and several Non-Sporting breeds, Junior Showmanship and Best in Show. She has judged numerous national specialties as well as many assignments abroad. This is her fifth Westminster judging assignment. All daytime preliminary breed and junior showmanship judging, and the Masters Obedience Championship at Westminster competitions will be held at Pier 94 on the West Side of Manhattan.
