I am sorry to announce the 2020 Triple Crown has been canceled. John is battling cancer and just isn't capable of putting in the work necessary for putting on a race. We have contacted the breeders and let them know. We appreciate everybody who has supported the Triple Crown throughout the years. We also appreciate all the well wishers for John's health. Any questions contact Steve Miner, 619-933-8188.
I'm glad to report John is doing much better after his surgery. He is up and around, taking care of birds daily. Birds have been out exercising for a week or so. Plan on start training in a couple more weeks making sure birds are flying well around the loft. Will do a clocking inventory well before training. Any questions contact Steve or John.
A couple weeks ago John was feeling pretty bad and finally went to doctor and they found a mass near his pancreas so they went ahead and operated. It was a long, 7 hours, operation and John is now recovering and will be for a few more weeks. I have been taking care of Triple Crown birds twice a day and will be continuing to do so until John is back. The 9th and 10th flights were pulled right before John went to doctor so birds are sitting in loft and letting the flights grow in. Any questions contact me and I will pass on to John. Thanks, Steve

We will be accepting birds starting March 1 thru June 15. Once again we will be picking up birds in Yuma, Az. on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Therefore we would like you to send birds on Monday or Tuesday. It would be beneficial to get them in early because it heats up to 100+ in May as a rule. Ship birds to: PO Box 2702, Yuma, AZ. 85366. Try to give us a heads up when they will be arriving. Birds will vaccinated with PMV when they arrive and put in isolation 4-5 days to make sure the health is good before we put them in the loft. Good Luck, Steve Miner 619-933-8188 or John Steinbrenner 619-586-3412.
Please read previous update to keep you up to speed concerning our race this year. It appears the quarantine for counties: Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Riverside will be in effect at least thru middle of May.

We will be accepting birds starting March 1. Any further questions contact Steve Miner, 619-933-8188 or John 619-586-3412.
The Triple Crown for 2020 will be a dual operation with John Steinbrenner and Steve Miner. Steve will do all coordinating and financial and John and Steve wil be working together with the birds. We are aware we didn't take in nearly as many birds as we would have liked however the race went off with no problems. We did have a couple tough training tosses however the races went well. You can ask anybody that attended the Triple Crown this year and they can attest tthings were handled well.
As you know the Triple Crown has a rich history under the leadership of Ron and we are hoping the breeders can see things are back on track and support the race in 2020. The Triple Crown is an integral part of the "Best Week of Pigeon Racing in the Country". We have 5 different races for the week that makes up our fantastic week.
