John I agree with you except I believe we have to educate them. For years now I have only raced my young birds first two races and then stopped them,only racing young birds that I think are surplus for requirements For the following year. They donâ€™t have to be raced right out as y/bs to win as yearlings as I have proved, topped fed with yearling from Ypres that had only 1 y/b race, this year yearling home from Reims only 2 y/b races. Fanciers including myself arenâ€™t training y/bs properly through fear, so I think the federation should help all of us to educate the y/bs,and the only way I think thatâ€™s possible is to have 3 or 4 races from Dunbar because for some reason we are still getting good steady returns from that area. That learns Them about the transporter and gives them confidence for the following year.
