*This is GB09L18854 ‘Son Teofilo’ an absolute stunning cock and top class breeder for Maurice O’Donnell, ABU Lofts that he bought from our auction in Dublin in November 2009 .
I had a call from Maurice O’Donnell the well known Irish One Loft Race specialist to report a great performance in the recent South Africa Million Dollar Pigeon Race .
Maurice had achieved some really top notch results with the offspring of this super cock that have been previously detailed on this site , before he sold him at his Blackpool auction a couple of years ago.
Maurice had retained a few children of him for his breeding loft , and last season Maurice sent two nest sister hens, grandchildren of his ‘Son Teofilo’ to the SAMDPR , one for him and the other for his two Portuguese friends.
In an exceptionally tough final race from 541km he won 1st Ireland & 44th International with ‘Lucky Louise’ and his friends Rui Emido and Rogerio Germano won 1st Portugal & 46th International with her nest mate ‘Algarve 2’.
In 4th UK and 48th International in the same race was ‘Red Dundee’ bred by M & W Mellor of Crewe for their Millys Loft Team. This amazing red hen was very consistent over the whole race series and won almost $15,000 in Noms in addition to her prize money.
We bred her mother a white grizzle hen from our good ‘Warlord’ cock a son of our best ever pair ‘The Young Couple’ when paired to ‘Lady Luck’ a direct daughter of Dirk Leekens famous ‘Lucky Luke’…
We were also very pleased with our own blue hen ‘Iron Maiden (Klein Roger x Kuipers 391) winning 75th International in the final and also ‘Cream’ (Bronco x Perfect Lady) winning 2nd UK & 7th International and ‘Deep Purple’ (Blue Mike x Wind Chimes) winning 3rd UK & 16th International both in the Hot Spot Averages against 2,299 birds.
