TRIPLE CROWN UPDATE
Hello Breeders!
Just a quick update on the Triple Crown birds. Birds are looking GOOD, feeling GREAT  and are acting GREAT!!.The last training toss on Thurs Oct 25th we ran into a little problem on the way home to the Triple Crown loft. PERSONALLY I believe its the Falcons and Hawks are attacking the birds. I thought last year was bad, this year is worse and they are frequent and EVERYWHERE!! As of today Oct 27th we currently have 332 birds out of 337. An update about last training toss on Thurs the 25th. Birds were released at 11:45 am and not 10 am as was posted. There was overcast at home and the Triple Crown loft so release time was delayed. Release times are tentatively posted and can change due to the weather. 
Tomorrow Oct 28th -Sunday we will be going 40 miles and this will be their 15th toss as we are on schedule with the training of the Triple Crown birds.
Entry forms can be downloaded on our website, just click "ENTRY FORMS" on the bottom left hand side.
We are very busy here at the Triple Crown loft as we prepare for another year of racing. We hope you are planning on joining us Thanksgiving week for the best week in racing.
AGAIN We would like to thank you all for your continued support with the Triple Crown Classic in which this 30th year will be very sentimental.
Looking forward to seeing you all in November!

Sincerely,
John Steinbrenner

LOFT INVENTORY

Hello Breeders,

Hope you all are doing well.

The birds are doing just fine, healthy and looking good. Most, with their flights are fully grown, are out and about.

We have conducted a physical inventory of the birds and made any correction as needed according to the band number and the abbreviated name,

also ran a loft inventory through the clocking system for accuracy. We will conduct another clocking inventory prior to the start of training.

BTW, if you haven’t sent in your perch fee by now we encourage you to do so, as to avoid any forfeiture of your bird(s) to Triple Crown Classic by October 1st “Training Day”.. Thank You!

WE HOPE YOU ARE PLANNING TO JOIN US THE WEEK OF THANKSGIVING FOR THE BEST WEEK IN PIGEON RACING. MAKE YOUR HOTEL RESERVATIONS SOON AT THE MARRIOTT LIBERTY STATION AND MENTION YOU'RE WITH THE PIGEON RACES TO GET YOUR ROOM DISCOUNT. 

ONCE AGAIN WE LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT OF THIS VERY SENTIMENTAL 30TH TRIPLE CROWN CLASSIC.

P.S.

BIRDS DOING JUST FINE - INVENTORY BY SEPT 1ST

Hello Breeders,

Hope all is fine with you. Us here in San Diego, we are burning up. It's been hot since mid-July and it hasn't let up yet, the temperature is averaging 90º with some humidity which make it worse.

The birds are doing just fine, most with their flights fully grown in but we will keep them in the loft one more week just ensure all birds have grown back full flights and towards the end of the week we will conduct a physical inventory of the birds and do a dry run race to double check for accuracy.

Also, if you haven’t sent in your perch fee by now we encourage you to do so, as to avoid any forfeiture of your bird(s) to Triple Crown Classic by October 1st “Training Day”.. Thank You!

WE HOPE YOU ARE PLANNING TO JOIN US THE WEEK OF THANKSGIVING FOR THE BEST WEEK IN PIGEON RACING. MAKE YOUR HOTEL RESERVATIONS SOON AT THE MARRIOTT LIBERTY STATION AND MENTION YOU'RE WITH THE PIGEON RACES TO GET YOUR ROOM DISCOUNT.

LOFT INVENTORY - BIRD STATUS
Hello Breeders,
Hope all is fine with you. Here in San Diego, It's been hot this past 2 week but the birds are doing just fine. Today we are conducting an inventory to determine if any of your birds are missing and a replacement is needed. Also this past weekend we clip flights, POX and locked up birds for 3 weeks or so, till all flights have grown back.

Please review the loft inventory and if any of your birds are lost, you may send a replacement till the end of this month.
 
A reminder, please send your perch fee before our first training to avoid your bird(s) being forfeited to Triple Crown Classic in which we become the owners of the bird(s).
 
I hope you are making plans for the greatest week of pigeon racing here in San Diego all in the week of Thanksgiving.
