 AU-18-TONYLOFT-12336

 
100% American Trenton
 
Great Long Distance Strain.

===========================

Let us look at a few records flights by the Trentons: 
 
in July 11, 1913, a Blue Checker half Trenton known as 'Bullet' homed into
 
Fort Wayne from Abilene, Texas, 1000 miles late in the afternoon of the 2nd
 
day to the loft of Oscar Anderson, a world record in 1 day, 11 hours, and 24
 
minutes, and 6 seconds making a speed of 1042.54 yards per minute. 
 
On the 24th of June, 1927, 'Bullet's' record was broken by 'Wayne Jr.' a full
 
Trenton bred and flown into Fort Wayne by C.W. Oetting. 'Wayne Jr.' flew
 
1005 miles to his home loft in I day, 10 hours, 22 minutes and 20 seconds,
 
with a speed of 1122.43 ypm. Much has happened since then in relation to
 
this fabulous strain. In fact one of the great exponents of the Trenton's- Milton
 
Haffner of Fort Wayne, Indiana, according to my sources in a period of 21
 
years sent 79 birds to races of 1,000 mile distances and realized a
 
percentage of 71%- that is 57 returns.
 
This is phenomenal! One of the latter a cock named 'Spotty' flew 1,000 miles
 
five times collecting a first and a second with his last race at the age of nine
 
years old. And today representatives of the strain continue to cross the one
 
thousand miles barrier. In fact this great strain of distance racing pigeons
 
went on to create a lasting legacy as the foundation of many of the great long
 
distance lofts in the United States of America.
