Here in Florida for the most part our birds race at a very intense pace. Therefore, developing a bird with speed is of utmost importance. However, it is very difficult to produce a fast bird without losing the stamina of an exceptional athlete. So it is a constant challenge to adjust both physical and mental characteristics to get that fast bird.
My ultimate goal is to use birds with a distance or stamina background and have them be able to fly the fast pace that is required, especially on the shorter races.
These are some of our most influential breeders that I am using successfully at this time to help accomplish this goal.
