Had a message last week from Dave Stokes of the well respected R.Stokes and Son of Clee Hill partnership advising of his two Tarbes saying “They have had the 3 NFC races up to now and been coming consistently up to now”.
Well yesterday he clocked his yearling checker hen GB22Z31406 to be provisional 4th Section J, 46th open in the tough NFC Tarbes against 2026 birds being the furthest flying yearling on the day. She has previously won 169th NFC Messac 4504 birds, 297th NFC Fougeres 5657 birds and 1st club, 14th Heart of England Federation from Guernsey. She is bred from a cock of their old family and we are pleased to have bred the dam from our marathon lines.
A really talented hen prepared and raced by top fanciers and she has to be a top prospect for the future.
