ANNSBOROUGH LOFT’S DOUBLE SUCCESS

This Year’s St Malo Old Bird Derby was as we know a testing race with 8 birds in race time one of which belonged to the Annsborough loft of W Hardy & son who were 4th and they then followed this up by winning the Combine from the Talbenny YB Derby . The Talbenny winner ,a cock racing to the perch had been in every race up to Talbenny and is of the Fuller Isaacson family of birds which they have raced since the late 1950’s .These were two great achievements and Paddy Hardy has asked me to pass on through this column his thanks to everyone who congratulated him on winning the YB derby from Talbenny. It was Very much appreciated and he wishes everyone a very successful 2019.
