ON Saturday, we had a yearling race from Paul Roux, which is a distance of 272 km.

The liberation was at eight, with the first arrival clocked at 11:48,36 to the loft of the Naicker brothers who are having a great season. Close on its heels came their second bird at 12:01,13.

RD Lofts not to be denied, grabbed third position at 12:06,57, followed by another for the brothers at 12:08,36.

Not to be outdone, RD Lofts quickly filled the next five positions to leave 10th place for the brothers.

“Old Grizzle” claimed 11th and for once beat Leon Potgieter who took 12th place.

The Naicker brothers won the Red Cup with the first red bird home and RD Lofts the Blue Bar Cup with the first blue bar bird clocked.

Next week’s race is from Boshoff, which is about 490 km away. The M.R. Trophy will be the nominated trophy.

To nominate, one cock and one hen must be clocked.
