South Africa Million Dollar Race Stats Hot Spot #1 Results

December 29, 2017



It is without dispute that the South Africa Million Dollar Pigeon Race (SAMDPR) captures the pigeon world’s attention unlike any other race every year.  With so many pigeons, so many countries and such a significant amount of prize money available it is by 1,000s of participants, most of which are not even in the race.  The SAMDPR is a type of Olympics where breeders greatest desire should they not win is that one of their countryman stands atop the podium!  The Loft Report has completed its first year of tracking One Loft Race results in the United States and they have now turned their attention to tracking the SAMDPR.

Thank you again to everyone for your words of encouragement, ideas to make this better and support!

Yours in the Sport,
