Jack Millar and son Derek from the Harryville HPS in Ballymena had the best bird in the INFC Yearling Nat flown from Sennen Cove last Wednesday on a perfect flying day. Liberation was at 8.30am in a Lt NW wind and with helping conditions at the home end a good race was expected. It indeed turned out one of the best for many years with over 1,000 birds recorded on the day across Ireland in one of the top races of the year. J Millar & Son timed at 5.07pm to record velocity 1124 for the 329 miles to the lofts at Cromkill on the main Antrim Road. Former winner of the race Alan Darragh was next best taking 1st Clllybackey (1076), followed by Danny Diixon 1st Ballymoney (1075) and G & A Eagleson 1st Ballymena & District (1074). J Millar & Son win 1st in the Mid Antrim Combine and will be even more pleased with 7th North Sect & 12th Open INFC 800/4,474.
