U-turn is the son of Silver and Madonna and like his sister Celia, he holds many of the same traits as his parents. Named after a very large drug dealer in the TV show Weeds, he holds a lot of the same traits as his namesake. A bigger dog with long fur, he is built perfectly for the Yukon Quest and the extreme weather we face on the trail. U-turn loves to please and is a very strong leader, and a lover as well. He will never turn down a good belly rub. He is also very stubborn and when he decides he is going to do something; it is nearly impossible to slow him down. This has worked to his advantage and his disadvantage in his race history. He tends to overwork himself and because of it, has been dropped from a few races because he wears himself out. However, as he as gotten older, he has mellowed and shown he has what it takes to go the distance. In 2016, he mostly trained with the Yearlings and did amazing job. He ran the Copper Basin 300, Two Rivers 200 and the Yukon Quest 300, and was a great influence on the young dogs. He then ran with me in the Iditarod and had one of his best performances! I expect great things out of U-turn in the future.
