*Leach Brothers famous foundation breeding cock ‘The Syndicate Cock’ a direct son of our ‘Zabel’ (Direct son of Kannibaal of Van Dyck) with ‘Doran’ (Daughter Emerveens Hope x Golden Lady of Koopman).

‘The Syndicate Cock’ is sire of ‘Joint Venture’.  

Many thanks to Gerry O.Mara and Family the top class Dublin fanciers for sending me this information on his super breeding cock ‘Joint Venture’. He was bred in a joint pairing of Leach Brothers famous ‘Syndicate Cock’ and the mother of Gerry O’Mara’s incredible ‘Rocket Ronnie’.

‘Joint Venture’ has bred top winners for the O’Mara’s from the beginning with the best so far probably being the 2019 Best Young Bird in the ultra competitive Irish South Road Fed with birdage off 6000 to over 10,000 entries per week.

Very well done indeed Gerry and Adrian.




This handsome cock is ‘Robbies Rocket’ is not only a ‘looker’ but he is a racer of the highest caliber winning 1st Section 10th Open NFC Cholet 3395 birds with the other nine birds ahaead of him flying at least 100 miles shorter! And then a few weeks later 1st Section 4th Open MNFC Vire 3574 birds.

He was raced by C and K Lee of Nottinghamshire and is bred from a grandson and granddaughter of ‘Drum’ via Mr Wright.



Drums offspring continues to breed at the very top at National and Classic level through the generations. ‘Ronnies Rocket’ was bred from a grandson and grand daughter. Drums winning DNA is still as potent over 15 years from his first offspring racing. The most important reason why we still have the bloodline in abundance.
