Gary Warner holding the Sire of Hot Spot 1 Winner. The Dam being a previous R.P.R.A yearling final entrant racing under Madden & Warner. We would like to thank Jeremy Davies and the One Loft Team for the work that they have put in. We also would like to wish everyone else the best of luck in the next Hot Spots and Final Race. Yours in Sport Gary Warner In 2nd place - Just The One Here is a little right up about one loft racing I have been sending to one loft races since 2004, I first sent 3 birds to the Europa classic and finished just out of the prize money I entered 3 again in 2005 and won it. I sent 3 in 2006 and finished in the top 50 so to me one loft racing has been good.
Jeff Davies and his familyYou do need a lot of luck with all the hazards and the loft manger keeping them healthy Jeremy Davies the loft manager of the old is doing a great job, I have been sending to the rpra one loft race for the last 6 years me and Mike and John Hughes sending one bird each but as mike didn't like to pair up early I would breed the two birds and every year we sent we have had a bird in the final race so Jeremy Davies is doing a great job.

Foster, Sons and DaughterWe haven’t raced directly we for the last few years due to problems with the birds of prey but enjoy the One loft Races. We have entered the RPRA One loft race for the last 3 years and are impressed with the way Jeremy runs this one. With the regular training and care of the pigeons and keeping us informed of all that’s going on, with his updates and videos. So, Thanks to Jeremy and everyone else at the RPRA One loft! Foster, Sons and Daughter. Second place - Costa Del Lofts Some details of the pigeon and our syndicate (Costa del lofts). We started going in the RPRA one loft in 2017 we bred the ace pigeon. Since then we have entered our own small team. We have had some more success in the hotspot races each year. Our syndicate is basically the Silvester family. Me my Mrs, 2 boys and my parents which aren’t pigeon fanciers but enjoy following the updates off Jeremy and Benzing live. The birds which we have done well with are from Peter fox (syndicate lofts). We first went to Peter in 2015 and his birds have won for us from the start. Each year we add to these from Peters Doncaster auctions. The parents of our 2nd hotspot pigeon we bought from Doncaster last year. They was my 40th birthday present off my wife. The father is from Peters Portugal pair (same way as peters ace pigeon winner in the Algarve race) and the mother is from his top breeder Max x Ninty. I have enclosed a picture of our syndicate.
Phil Silvester and Costa Del lofts3rd place - North Man My 3rd in the recent RPRA Hotspot is bred from a cock we call “Oban Express” and its dam is “ Miss Magic” Oban Express raced as a yearling, I don’t race young birds, scoring 1st & 2nd club, he had 2 more races but came back from his 4th with his wing badly damaged by peregrines. Given my location, flying into Oban but with Glasgow Federation. This means the last 40 or so miles over 1000 metre mountains they do on their own, I felt he had proved himself as worthy of a box in the stock loft. He has the best of Steve Fosters C & C Lambrechts, Ogilvie Lofts Tam Blair’s and GWP Macaloney in his pedigree. Miss Magic is a direct GWP Macaloney hen from their fantastic Mr. Magic and is proving to be a great addition breeding pigeons to score for me and also in Lanarkshire federation for my good friend George Baird. The Grand dam of Oban Express is also the Dam of George’s Lanarkshire Open winner last year, she is a dtr of Steve’s Mighty White and one of my best breeding hens. It’s great to see my bird’s right up there with the best but the final races in these one lofts can be a different thing all together so we will be keeping our fingers crossed in the coming weeks. Jeremy does a fantastic job looking after and racing our hopefuls and, yet again, I have thoroughly enjoyed participating. Kind regards Al.
