Pigeon Pixels One Loft Race 2014 Hotspot 4

 

 

Pigeon Pixels One Loft Race 2014

Hotspot 4

After the success of the first three Hotspots in this year's Pigeon Pixels One Loft series where Boxer's (Rob Beynon) birds were on fire claiming 1st Open in all 3, the remaining 42 birds in this year's race were going to the 124 miles stage in the 4th Hotspot. The race took place on the 9th August 2014. All 42 birds from the 3rd Hotspot were marked in anticipation for another close race. The birds were released as part of the NIPA convoy at 7.45am into a South West wind. Eamon has the team firing on all cylinders and once again the returns proved fantastic with all 42 birds being clocked by 12.30pm. That is outstanding when there were over 21,000 birds in the NIPA liberation!

For the first time in 4 races we had a new member at the top of the result sheet! Taking 1st Open and clocking at 9.46am was Bunny (Paul Bunclark from Rotherham, South Yorkshire). Paul strongly fancied this bird as it was activated in the Gold Ring and in the Nom and duly collected the £294 prize! Paul only bred 4 pigeons this season. 2 went to the Somerset One Loft Race and two were sent here! The nestmate to this pigeon finished 2nd Open last week and won £194, so this pair are raking the money in for Paul! The dam is a 2012 pigeon from Allan Jones and she raced in the RPRA OLR and 2013 yearling season in which she raced with credit and then bought in subsequent auction. The sire is a 2009 pigeon bought from Herbots from the Daniel Beelen auction and is a stunning cock.

2nd Open and under 3 minutes behind the winner was Poppy Lofts (Mark Knight from Hereford) the Sire is a Louella Albert Marcelis (bought as one of their 10 for £180) and the Dam is one of Tom Scotts of Ludlow own strains who has helped Mark no end since he started in 2012. Mark has not been in the sport very long but already has birds performing very well indeed.

3rd Open was that man again - Boxer (Rob Beynon) with the same pigeon who has been 1st Open in the previous 2 Hotspots! This hen is flying out of her skin and is extending her lead in the Ace Bird standing with every race! She was under 5 minutes behind the winner. This bird is a Verheye / Frans Zwols. On the dam side is a Verheye bred by Franny Perruzzi of Norwich and on the sire side is a Frans Zwols from Johnny Strachan of Scotland.

4th Open was Billt (Bill Tanner from Llansawel, Carmarthenshire) with a bird named Raffles who Bill won when 2 birds were put up for a competition with the prize of a venturer bird and entry into the event. The bird is bred by Eamon Wright out of birds with top Open and Section performances in the Nipa via Wayne Doonan.

5th Open was Fletch (J Fletcher & son). This pigeon was 2nd Open in the previous Hotspot, so hitting form just at the right time! The bird is a Van Reet bred from their stock loft. This pairing also bred a pair of good yb's last year in their first nest and also bred their club winner (Tibbington club) this season. The sire of the pigeon was breed from their good friend R Gelder & Sons who won several races for them before going into the stock loft. The dam is their line of Van Reets, she is a daughter of their number 1 stock cock, as a young bird she won twice herself, before being put to stock as her breeding lines were ideal for stock.

6th Open was Brother Loft (Luc and Ioan Zimmer from Brecon) with a venturer pigeon bred by Eamon Wright. Brother Loft are two young lads from Brecon. Luc and Ioan Zimmer 13 and 9 years of age respectively. They have only had pigeons just over a year and have one of the most unique loft in the Uk - 10ft in the air on top of a pergola! Their own entries were not ready to send in time so a venturer bred by Eamon Wright was entered on their behalf. Brother Lofts pigeon is a Herman Cuesters / Lambrect cross. First time pairing. The hen is from Premier Lofts and the cock from Wilkes Farm lofts.

Eamon Wright the loft manager has performed wonders all through the series to date. We started with 60 birds and 42 went to this the 4th Race of the series and all 42 were home by midday! To prove how well this team are flying I am pleased to report that the 1st Open Pigeon belonging to Bunny (Paul Bunclark) also recorded 6th Section E (5,416 birds) and 55th NIPA Open 21,391 birds! Outstanding for Eamon, Paul and the Pigeon Pixels One Loft Race!

Next week the race point is going to 156 miles and I am sure the birds will be tested once again, but with the form and condition Eamon has these birds in I am sure they will be able to take it in their stride! I am sure the forum will be buzzing with excitement in the lead up to the 5th Hotspot.

In the Ace Bird competition - Boxers - 04108 has now extended her lead with the 2 x 1sts, 1 x 3rd positions to give her 28pts and a commanding lead over Brother Loft and Fletch's pigeons who both have 15pts and these are clear of Rasbull Lofts who is sitting in the 4th with 11pts. All to play in the Ace Bird competition with £150 at stake and just 2 races left!
