Vari­able re­sults in pi­geon rac­ing

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Horsham Rac­ing Pi­geon Club had two races – one from Lake Bo­lac on a south­east line on Fri­day and an­other from Mil­dura on a north line on Satur­day.

With less-favourable weather con­di­tions pre­dicted for Sun­day, the club rescheduld the Lake Bo­lac race to Fri­day.

Lead­ing pi­geons took two hours and 18 min­utes to cover the 121-kilometre flight from Lake Bo­lac, rel­a­tively slow given the south­west­erly breeze on Fri­day.

The win­ner, owned by John Muszki­eta, av­er­aged 871 me­tres a minute which equates to an av­er­age of 53kmh.

Muszki­eta’s win­ning en­try was 3.46 min­utes ahead of the Mcphee fam­ily’s sec­ond-placed pi­geon.

In con­trast, the win­ning pi­geon in the Mil­dura to Horsham race, owned by Rob Nel­son, av­er­aged 84kmh.

It cov­ered the 277km in 3.19 hours, a quick flight, in part aided by the fresh­en­ing northerly breeze on Satur­day morn­ing.

The mob of 669 race pi­geons owned by 17 mem­bers were re­leased at 8.30am and the win­ner en­tered its home loft in Horsham at 11.49am.

Next week­end’s rac­ing will be from Coom­bah on the north line and from Mort­lake on the south­east line.
