Algarve Golden Race 2022 Final…

Saturday 2nd October was the Final Race of the Algarve Golden Race held from Bragança a distance of 505 km. Around 7100 birds was initially entered into the series with 3623 birds going to the final.  The final was a tough affair with only 623 birds home on the day leaving 3000 out on the night.

In the autumn of 2019 we coupled Pharoah the cock of our Portugal Pair who had just bred some exceptional performers as a yearling and two year old to Stella one of the best breeding hens we ever bred from our old legendry couple Drum x Gerrie. The result was only one of the pair of eggs survived and was a really smart looking Blue Cock that matured very well indeed and we decided to include him in our Doncaster auction of that year to present as varied a selection of our very best bloodlines that we had available.
