In 2016 for the 2017 race, McLaughlin Lofts shipped the 1st Place winner of the Million Dollar Race, for the 2nd year in a row, including nearly every possible prize winner!  USA dominated the 2016-2017 season again, due to pigeons that passed through the hands of Frank McLaughlin!
In 2015 for the 2016 race, McLaughlin Lofts worked very hard to export every USA pigeon to the Million Dollar Race, including the winner and ALL prize winners!  We give you the best chance to win! 
In 2014 for the 2015 race, McLaughlin Lofts exported EVERY prize winner in each car race and ALL the top USA and Canadian pigeons in the final race.  McLaughlin Lofts shipped 94% of the pigeons that scored in the final race prizes AND 100% of the prize winners, leading up to the final race!  Our track record of excellent care of export pigeons, speaks for itself!  As always, McLaughlin Lofts give you the very best chance of success! 

Massachusetts has cool temperatures in May & June – VERY advantageous for receiving-exporting pigeons!

Please vaccinate the pigeons for Paramyxovirus (PMV), two weeks prior to sending them to me. If needed, I can also vaccinate the pigeons. Once in South Africa, they will be vaccinated for PMV, Salmonella and Pox.

The “entry fee” for the Million Dollar Race is $1,100 for each four-bird team, which includes one entry and three backups. You are welcome to mail the $1,280 (entry fee and export fee) for each team to me, and I can wire the money at NO charge to you.  Make check payable to: Frank McLaughlin.
The pigeons will have unlimited grits, pick stones, pink minerals, pro-biotics, apple cider vinegar, European grain mix and pellets, and will be given all natural products during their stay. The excellent care we provide, prior to the trip, is essential for a stress-free travel! 

For 21 years, the South African Million Dollar Pigeon Race has proven to be the best “One Loft Pigeon Race” in the world!  The race is a true test of endurance, for even the most agile of pigeons.  It is the Olympics of pigeon racing, with entrants from 30 countries, competing for the sought-after title of “South African Million Dollar Pigeon Race Champion.”  Winners receive international fame and recognition!
