Another top weekend racing for Mal & Richard Clement

Rod Simmons
Monday, August 26, 2019

Hi Rod,

 

We had a great weekend racing with some really pleasing results winning on Saturday the 5 races available.  Open fed Young Bird Derby, Fed $2 Blue Band Race, Federation Breeders plate race,  Lake Combine Young Bird  Derby and  first and second in the Lake Combine Breeders plate.

 

Really pleased to win the Lake Macquarie Combine Young Bird Derby, as we had been 2nd or 3rd for a few years straight since our last win in this feature race 4 years ago.

 

A little hen NCF 18- 9903 who is a granddaughter of Top Shelf, (Heremans x Alwin Petrie), and has been going really well for us winning 2 combine races in her last 2 starts was good enough to take out 2nd prize in the Combine Breeders plate  and also the pools yesterday with a velocity of 1738m min.

9903s parents have probably been our number 1 pair this season producing numerous top 3 fed birds and 4 combine winners in their first season together in stock.

 

Top Shelf and Maid Marion (Alwin Petrie) have probably been the best pigeons we have ever bought to be honest and I seriously could not count now how many winners they have sired or are grandparents for.

 

Cheers Richard and Mal

A. M Curcio 2nd Fed VRPU and Jack Hao 18th Fed VHA, both very small team flyers.

With a velocity of 1,116.39 mpm, his Blur Bar hen 17-3179 and a young loft mate having its first race, put up a great effort on a harder race.  17-3179 is a great grandson of Robert Taylors top stock cock CITY BOY, from Winners1 Alwin Petrie imports ALWIN x SUN CITY. The youngster that landed with 17-3179 is off a granddaughter of City Boy to Rob’s Classic Pair, also breed by Winners1.

Richard and Mal Clement 2nd Federation, Wee Waa, 370klms

Rod Simmons
Sunday, July 28, 2019

Hi Rod,

Good race yesterday from Wee Waa which is 370klms to our loft.

We have  again trapped a little yearling hen LM 9903 who was in the clock 2 weeks ago to win the club , combine and run 2nd fed- she is a granddaughter of your cock Top Shelf  being out of a hen fast becoming a real important stock pigeon – LM 15

 9903 has again won 1st club, 1st combine ( by over 50 m/ min) and 2nd fed  this week flying a velocity of 1254 m/ min

There were two clocks in the fed almost 50m, or over 12 mins in front of third place so this was an amazing effort by a pigeon having only its 4th start.

This little hen was also equal trap with her full sister LM 9913 in her first start when amazingly the result was 1st club, 1st combine and 2nd fed so she is already effectively a triple Lake Macquarie Combine winner..............

Our 2nd  in today’s race finished 4th fed this week but was  14 mins behind the first 2 birds however still a great effort by another yearling hen having only her third race start

 

On a side note-

Another sister out of the same pair that bred LM 9903, a little hen rung  LM 1603 today finished 12th in the Hunter Classic $10,000  2nd lead up race from around 200klms against over 300 birds landing in the 3rd little kit by the looks of the times.  She was also in the top 35 from the first lead up race so she is going ok.

 

Cheers Mate,

Richard and Mal

Rod, 

Saturday was another race from Boggabri which is around 295klms to our loft.

 

We have flown a velocity of 1421m/min trapping a 2yo hen LM 17 1826 ( her second time in the clock this year).

 

This hen is a full sister to this years quadruple combine winner ( LM 17 1816). She is a direct daughter of the Alwin Petrie hen, Maid Marion when paired to 695- the son of Top Shelf, Heremans x Alwin Petrie.

 

Saturday she has taken out 1st club, 1st Lake Macquarie Combine and 4th overall Newcastle/ Coalfields federation against almost 1200 pigeons.

 

 

We jump to Wee Waa now which is approx. 370klms so looking forward to the step into the mid distance racing leg of the season .

 

Cheers Richard and Mal

Jack Hao 1st Club, Centre and 14th Overall VHA

Rod Simmons
Saturday, July 20, 2019

Racing from Wycheproof, 254 km and 3,996 birds, Jack Hao placed 1st Club, 1st Diamond Valley Centre and 14th Overall in a race with strong north winds helping the deeper VHA flyers.

His young Blue Bar cock VHA18-14119 is by Mighty Robin out of our imports ROBIN (Alwin Petrie) x MIGHTY HEN (G & C Koopman). The mother of 18-14119 is Lan Se Gaby, out of our Gaby Vandenabeele imports DREAMING x GABY’S GIRL. 

The result is enormous encouragement for Jack, as only a few months ago he had a fox get into his loft, killing 55 out of the100 race pigeons.

Hi Rod,


Raced from Breeza which is 230klms on the weekend and had  good results with both clocks running first and second in the Lake Macquarie combine and 3rd and 4th in the NCF federation.

 

We trapped LM 17 -1816 again- this is this hens last start and she has now been stocked. She has been clocked 4 times this year for 4 club wins ( against approx. 120 birds each race) , 4 combine wins ( against approx. 500 birds each race) and 4 fed places all in the top 3 that included 1st, 2nd, 2nd and 3rd NCF Federation against averages of approx. 950 – 1300 birds.

She is out of Maid Marion and 695 ( a son of Top shelf)

 

We had 2 together on the weekend with the second pigeon across the pad being a yearling NCF18 243 and she is out of ncf 16 0015 who is a daughter of top shelf. I only took 6 out of 15 and 3 have now been in the clock and all have been in top 4 in federation results.

Rod Simmons
Saturday, July 06, 2019

Congratulation to Alex for an excellent result in today’s race. His Blue Bar hen WPF18-4034 is breed from 2 pigeons Alex purchased from Winners1. The father of 4034 is ROYAL and a full brother to a fed winner and fed placed birds. The father of Royal is BLUE BLOOD a mix of Alwin Petrie, Marco. K. Falckenborg and our best Goodgers. The mother of Royal is TRUE BLUE; her breeding is Van Loon, Alwin Petrie and G.S Verkerk. More evidence to dispel the old argument that crosses can’t breed winners.

 

The mother of 4034 is DAUGHTER CHAMPION; she is one of the first pigeon Alex purchased when starting out in racing pigeons. Daughter Champion has also produced 1.club, 2nd Federation from Deniliquin 256km and 2,628 birds. Her breeding is Marco. K. Falckenborg and the same Goodgers lines.
