Today was the grand final of the Who Dares Wins One Loft Race flown from Falaise a distance of 292 miles.
Very pleased to report Mrs Ann Smith of Derbyshire flying as the Telly Tubbies wins 3rd place with their entry Tinky Winky collecting £8350 in prize money. This bird was bred from a son of our PORTUGAL PAIR coupled with a hen bred by Mrs Smith from a son and daughter of DRUM.
I am super pleased for them on this exciting performance.
We must also mention Mr Stephen Fearns from Liverpool flying as The Sky Pirates winning 8th in the Final and provisional 2nd Ace pigeon just pipped for the 1st prize from almost 2000 entries with GB23S55707. This bird is via Dave Rothwell and the remarkable thing is it is from the same sire as last years 1st Ace Pigeon in the Pride of the Potteries race as well as a multitude of other great performaers including S.Gildea and Sons 1st MNFC Nom Race winner. The sire is from KING KANON paired to CENTREFOLD a daughter od ATTILA x LITTLE STAR. The dam is from PROPERE 10 (Propere x Athena of Rik Hermans) with STARDUST a super breeding daughter of DI CAPRIO,
