Flash for Nikon D60

Which flash attachment do you experts recommend for the Nikon D60 that would take good indoor shots at dog shows from say a distance of like 100 feet?

I searched some posts but didn't find any info.

I'd say at least the SB600 at that range, but SB900 if you more power. You'll also want to invest on fast telephoto lens with the largest zoom and lowest possible aperture all combined with what you can afford.

My husband said SB600 too. He has an SB800 but said the 600 should be good for what you want.

Thanks all for the advise. Have not gotten the camera yet, but we know that will be the one, just had no idea which flash might be best.
