Lanarkshire Federation -Hexham race 4th May


Hexham in Northhumberland, North East England, proudly holds the title of England’s favourite market town as voted by Country Life magazine. The town centre is filled with winding streets with Hexham Abbey.

Hexham racecourse is built on a hill overlooking the town, so as well as getting a good view of the racing, enjoy grandstand views of the rolling countryside surrounding the town too.

The temperature plummeted over the week with a cold icy front moving in from the North. When the North wind blows then the velocities are going to be around the 1100ypm.

Saturday broke with sunny a stiff cold wind but bright with some sunshine, but when it wasn't three then it wasn't pleasant. The communication came through that the 5,600 birds plus 20 Fauldhoue club crates had been liberated at 10 15 am in a North wind.

This week’s winners like the previous two races are the brilliant GWP Macaloney whose Pencil yearling cock covered the 97 miles in 2hrs 25 minutes for a velocity of 1179ypm.

GWP Macaloney winners of 1st Open Federation Hexham

Well done to Wullie and Paul.


The reports that an excellent race was had by the federation. Well done to everyone that makes this happen. 


This week’s winner Yearling Pencil C "Hercules" Bred by GWP Macaloney.  Supermac lines x Peter Fox Sunday Girl lines. Their first five birds are all bred from full brothers of the 4 x 1st Fed winner "Supermac II". This equals their 2006 record in old birds of 3 consecutive Fed topping weeks..
That's three weeks three wins in three different winds, same result ,1st Federation Open Lanarkshire federation. World Class!
They also had a terrific team performance with seven pigeons in the top fifteen of section. Can they create a new record of recording four 1st Open federation in a row in Old bird racing? You wouldn’t count it out for four in a row.
