Had a nice phone call from Shaun Cooke from Wrexham reporting some winning performances in the Wrexham Federations Weymouth Race on 12th June.

First Fed went to R & S Lewis of Brymbo winning against a 1334 bird entry. His winner has been a very good prize winner during his career having also won  1st Wrexham Fed Cheltenham against 2,079 birds.

He is a grandson of our top breeding cock ‘Nitro’ bred by Dirk Leekens when paired to ‘Half Sister Cowgirl’ bred by Rik Hermans. on the other side of the pedigree of the winner is Mystique daughter of Drum bred by Syndicate Lofts and raced by Crehan & O’Connor.

Shaun and Father also had a good race themselves winning 1st Club 2nd Fed with one of his ultra reliable Lambrechts birds and 2nd Club,3rd Fed with one from a son of SAMBA (Johannesburg x Maxine) and ARIEL bred by Rik Hermans from his super pair ZOON GUUS 1 x RED ATHENA.

Shaun also reports Nick Adshead of Selby’s 16th Open in the BICC Hexham race last week with a gift bird from Shaun bred from the same ARIEL hen coupled with LITTLE BIG MAN (Propere 10 x Foxy Lady). This is the same way bred as the Chip Shop Cooke’s ( Bates and Cooke) entry Erin’s Dream in last years Algarve Great Derby Final winning 1st Wales 31st International in the very testing Final Race from Alfandega Da Fe a distance of 486 km against 1726 birds.

Very well done to all involved.
