2018 OLR Breeders (Updated 12-30-18)

ALL RACES ARE COMPLETE!!!!  Unfortunately, we are still waiting to add the final race and champions from the SD Triple Crown.  We can’t seem to find out the final payout on the birds.  Once we have the information the stats will be done for 2018 and we can all focus on 2019!!  Again, the criteria to be tracked is to have at sent at least 25 birds to 3 separate races that we are tracking.  If you have any questions please send an email to olrstats@gmail.com.

NOTE:  There are multiple pages of breeders (3 pages) and you can scroll through the pages on the bottom of each PDF viewer. 

BREEDERS – TOTAL ENTRY

 
NOTE:  We had several requests for an easier say to see how many birds breeders entered into the races.  Here you go.  We hear comments like “Oh, if I entered that many I would…”  In our opinion, there may be some truth to that (especially in the money categories), but there is also a lot to be said that it is harder to be at the top of the OLR stats if you send more birds as it counts against you as we use the number entered as a factor in almost every category.
 

BREEDERS – % OF ENTRIES TO FIRST RACE

 
NOTE:  This report simply shows the breeders that are getting the highest percentage of entries sent to the first race.  Those who do well here probably pick the right races and know how to get healthy birds to the OLR managers.
 

BREEDERS – % OF ENTRIES IN TOP 10% IN RACES (200 Miles+)

 
NOTE:  This report is the report that – in our opinion – shows the breeders that have the best breeding program and most consistency.  Please note that this is done cumulatively and is not individual birds.  So one bird could win multiple Top 10% positions and each Top 10% position is counted.
 

BREEDERS – $ WON PER ENTRIES (All Races)

 
NOTE: This report demonstrates the breeder that is winning the most money per bird when total winnings is divided by total entries.  With large prize payouts this can be skewed to those who are fortunate to win a big prize.  To help give the full picture we have added a new column to show the number of birds that actually won money next to the money won so you can see if it was one bird winning all the money or a lot of birds winning little prizes or some combination of all the above.  Also, if you want to speculate on who is making money in one loft races take a number around $450 (perch fee & entry fee) for the average money won per entry – everyone above that number is likely making money.  Everyone below is likely losing money.
 

BREEDERS – % OF MONEY WINNING POSITIONS (200 Miles+)

 
NOTE:  This report demonstrates the breeder that is putting birds “in the money.”  This factors in the total entry of the breeder and not money won so this is a very valuable report in evaluating a breeders success.
 

BREEDERS – TOTAL MONEY WON

 
NOTE:  This report simply shows how much total money a breeder has won.  Not a super valuable evaluation tool in a breeders success, but very interesting data to look at for obvious reasons.  What does it take to top this list for most breeders?  Just do well in the Hoosier and you are near the top of the list.
 

BREEDERS – % oF BIRDS TO THE FINAL RACE

 
NOTE:  This report shows the breeders that pick the right races and have the right birds to make it to the Final Race.
 

BREEDERS – % OF MONEY WINNERS ON FINAL RACE

 
NOTE:  These are what we call the “gamers” in that their birds bring it when the money is on the line. In a OLR it is all about the Final Race and those that get excited about training tosses or short races are missing the reality of one loft racing. Kind of like golf – “Drive for show, putt for dough.”  It is all show up until the final – that is where the champions are crowned!
