New introductions at Rasbull Lofts!

Rasbull Lofts have made their first purchases of the close season! I attended the Welsh show today and headed straight for the clearance sale of Clive Akers (Amesbury, Humphreys and Akers). I purchased a cheq hen Clive pointed out was his best racing hen. The details on the pedigree were a little vague but on doing a little research this afternoon I have found the following results this little hen has achieved. She was bred in 2008 so has only had 3 years racing to date!

2010- Club Result not known,6th Fed, 13th Combine (1,348 birds), 11th National 818 birds - 458 miles
2010 -Club Result not known,9th Fed, 16th Combine (6,563 birds), 9th National 2,693 birds - 193 miles
2010 -Club Result not known,74th National 2,649 birds - 196 miles
2010 -Club Result not known, 119th National, 1,679 birds, 368 miles
1st Club Maidstone
2nd Club Newbury, 17th Fed (3,000+)
2nd Club Guildford, 7th Fed (3,000+)
1st Club Newbury, 11th Fed (3,000+)
3rd Club Newbury
5th Club Epsom

To say I am over the moon with my new addition is an understatement! 4 times in the top 120 of the National in 1 season!
I am trying to find out further results especially from last season in the National races if anyone has any I would love to hear from you. I have contacted Clive but because he was in partnership he only has limited results/information at his address but he is going to have a dig and see what he can find! I also purchased a Wall, Lunt and Green Cheq Cock that Clive had brought into his loft in 2009 for stock purposes. 2 full sisters to the sire have topped the fed and combine in 2007. His dam has bred 5 separate fed winners. So fingers crossed this cock will produce the goods! I also bought a son from this cock that Clive has bred this year and was keeping for stock until he decided to sell up.

More new introductions will be brought in the end of the month and I will put their details on here once they have been secured!
