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.
