Muszkieta leads way


Horsham Racing Pigeon Club’s 2021 season is nearing completion with two or possibly three weekends remaining.

John Muszkieta leads 2021 championsh­ip standings, but Leigh Arnott recorded a commanding win in a 230-kilometre Bannockbur­n race at the weekend.

Pigeons flew into a north-westerly breeze up to 22kmh resulting in the entry of 313 racing pigeons averaging a relatively slow time.

The leading pigeon arrived home after a 4.59-hour flight.

A Bruce Rentsch entry was second home after allowing for overfly by 7.28 minutes. Results – Section one for small race teams: 1, Bruce Rentsch at 740.39 metres a minute and second in championsh­ip; 2, The Mcphee Family, 575.85mm; 3, Ken Kerr, 397.36mm. Section two for large race teams: 1, Leigh Arnott, 758.66mm; 2, John Muszkieta 669.89mm; 3, John Aisbett, 663.91mm.

This weekend’s racing will be from Bookaloo and Pimba.
