And without doubt we can say that he succeeded in doing this. At his lofts there are several One Loft Race champions. During the years he bought many winners of the famous One Loft Races in the world, especially in the South Africa Million Dollar Pigeon Race (SAMDPR). Mike owns an impressive collection of SAMDPR winners, they are all at his breeding loft now.
