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.
