I received my two birds from Rick Mee’s Apple Cup Yearling Classic last week. I have to give major props to him for a great race series and conditioning of the birds. My birds came back with such great muscle and silky feathers. I entered three birds last year in his race. It was only the second OLR I’ve ever entered. One bird was lost off the loft in the early months, but two of them raced and completed the entire series against the top lofts in the USA. Some flyers had entered 18-20 birds in this race!
These were some tough conditions with a mix of cross winds, head winds and heat. Right Turn Clyde finished in the money (27th Average Speed) but Amazeballs came in too late to finish high enough for money. Still happy she toughed it out and made it home.
Right Turn Clyde is out of my Koopman pair (my only pair like this) and is line bred to Kenny’s Girl (Protege Loft) and Witoger 720 (also Protege Loft). Amazeballs is actually a niece to Right Turn Clyde and is a cross with my Koopman’s and Evans Gaby’s via the Wicked Pair.
Thanks for the fun and entertainment, Rick, and I’ll be sure to enter again!
