My oldest racer is a young-looking 2001 Dark Chequer Cock which I have put on the North this year, he had ten races last year up to Bordeaux and this year he has had four races up to Wetherby 217mls.

I wouldn't say he's the fastest but he's never been last to the loft this year, kept him mainly for his looks (has won in the Club shows) He's had 60 races, 36 across the Channel (bearing in mind my loft location, our shortest Channel race is Picauville 100mls.)
