A recent chat with Garry revealed not only a fantastic start to his season but also the emergence of a new star breeder that is proving to be simply top class.
Three years ago after the season Garry visited and saw fell for a young dirty blue hen GB19V51684 in the aviary from Renegade and Gold Dust Woman however the hen was already entered as Lot 19 into our Uttoxeter Auction later that year. Garry attended the auction and bought the hen anyway.
She was a full sister to our own young hen that won 2nd Niergnies 433 birds , 19th Combine 3,864 birds and many other prizes.
Price Brothers and Son from Stourport also has the nest sister to GB19V51684 that has bred them a couple of winners. What a great line!
The first breeding season he paired her to a full brother to Rhiannon but only managed to get one nest from them before the cock died. From that nest came GB20N64999 and she won 3rd Club Wincanton and 5th Fed Honiton.
Her nest brother was GB20N65000 and he won:
*1st Club Yeovil, 2nd Fed 2279 birds
*2nd Club Guernsey, 15th Fed 1377 birds
*2nd Club Weymouth
*3rd Club Exeter
*4th Club Yeovil
This was in the Lambert club racing against 250 to 450 entries per race.
*40th Open NFC Guernsey (1) 2021 against 6,956 birds
*92nd Open BICC Guernsey (1) 2021 against 5,281 birds
*248th Open NFC Guernsey (2) 2021 against 5,853 birds
This season he was:
*26th Open BBC Guernsey against 2,156 birds
and last Saturday he was:
*39th Open NFC Guernsey (Provisional) 6,599 birds pooled all the way Section and Open.
The Blue Hen GB19V51684 (Renegade x Gold Dust Woman) was paired to a son of Junior (Son Young Couple) x Rhiannon and they bred Blue Hen GB20N6492820 winner of :
*1st Club Minstead

Blue Hen GB19V51684 (Renegade x Gold Dust Woman) also bred GB21N64888 *6th Club Honiton and 3rd Club,12th Fed Yelverton.
Garry also owns GB19V51867 a full brother to the Blue hen from Renegade and Gold Dust Woman and when paired to a full sister of Foxy Lady they bred:

This hen was the only hen from the pairing that raced however the same hen from Basil x Daughter Junior x Rhiannon when on loan to Paul Weems and paired to a son of Warrior (Son of War Drum x Sister Blue Baron) x Rhiannon bred his 1st North West Section in the first Central Southern Classic Flying Club race of the season 2022 from Guernsey on 7th May against 521 section entries.
Sometimes any fancier who loves the sport and is a sportsman can only stand back and admire a class fancier with class performances. And I can only applaud the level of results achieved by Garry not only for many years but this season in particular. Last Saturday on the day when his good cock GB20N65000 wins Provisional 39th Open NFC Guernsey Garry had the misfortune of his new neighbours kids playing football over the fence and spooking the cock on his return to lose approximately 30 open positions (Thats Life!) , he also had four cocks drop together from he BBO Fed Race from Exeter spooking two yearlings but the two experienced cocks hit the trap with no hesitation. The result was 1st and 2nd Fed against 1636 birds.
The 1st Fed winner was bred from the good son of JUNIOR x RHIANNON paired with a daughter of WARRIOR (Son of War Drum x Sister Blue Baron) x MATA HARI our top breeding daughter of OUTLAW x ZELDA (Dtr.Young Couple) and the 2nd Fed winner was bred from a grandson of OUTLAW x ROWEN (Dtr Young Couple) paired to RATHENS GINA and she is another league above again not only being the nest sister to BOBBI MAC Garry’s 1st Open NFC Young Bird National Winner in 2017 but she is also one of the very best National and Classic racing hens in the country at the moment.
