Today was the 5th and last Hot Spot in this years South Africa Million Dollar Race. This race also determined the Hot Spot Ace Bird. We are very pleased with the result of our entry ‘Shoot To Thrill’ winning 1st UK against an entry of 120 birds and 29th International against 2807 birds in today’s Hot Spot Race from 268 km and in the Hot Spot Ace Bird he wins 1st UK against 202 birds and 12th International against 3034 birds. He also qualifies for the last 68 birds in the Knock Out competition from an original 2734 entries.
What is particularly pleasing is ‘Shoot To Thrill’ is the same way bred as ‘Blue And Lonesome’ our Overall Ace Bird and Car Winner in this years Golden Algarve One Loft Race. These are the only two we have raced from Pharaoh and Femke the yearling parents. So the future is promising for this young pair.
We will now look forward to the South Africa Million Dollar Race Final on February 3rd and hope for a little luck.
