Derby Arona Training Update

Update on our 3 entries that have been entered into the Derby Arona One Loft Race!

3,059 birds were sent to the first training toss and for today's 7th training toss there were 2,709 basketed with 2,514 showing on the clock as things stand. So potentially 500 or so birds dropped in the first 7 training tosses! We are pleased to announce that after 7 training tosses all 3 of our entries remain in the loft.

The birds have been very steady to date mainly arriving with the main batch and in no hurry to trap but no concerns at present. You cant win the event in these early races but you can rule yourself out so its important to just get some time on the wing and arrive with the main batch and stay out of trouble.

Our leading contender in the Ace Bird standing is 'Rasbull Bob' who is direct from our No.1 stock cock 'Rasbull Semtex' when paired to 'Rasbull Nefertiti'. He took over as our leading bird in the 6th Training toss. He started very slowly and didn't like the traps but he appears to be improving as the time is going on. His positions have been:-

1st Training - 987th
2nd Training - 2095th
3rd Training - 2005th
4th Training - 1800th
5th Training - 706th
6th Training - 465th        
7th Training - 629th

Rasbull Bob currently standing in 836th Ace Bird Overall (3,059 Entries) and 38th Ace Welsh Bird (135 Entries)

Hopefully our 3 entries can keep improving now we are nearing the sea races and the hot spots!
