Three factors that played a role in affecting the pigeons and the fanciers moral are Pigeon Theft, Disease and Worst Weather. Two days before Trichy race on New Years Eve robbers broke down the Champion Pigeon Fancier Anbu's loft and has looted nearly 30 birds. Out of 30 many are his ace racing pigeons and stock pairs (taiwan,dubai birds caught in ship) and some show birds. This is the second time Anbu lost his birds in this manner. The news wildely spread in the racing pigeon commnunity and many offer their sympathies. Inspite of this cowardly theft, Anbu went on to win the races with the available birds in his hand. The news report coverage of this incident in tamil can be read here. Chennai race was a disaster because of worst weather (cyclone), which occured immediately after the race start. None of the birds returned before the allotted time. VRPC struggled to push their birds to Marathon but failed. The birds were attacked by Coli virus after Chennai race and most of the fanciers lofts are rattled. They progressed to Nellore with moderate results and decided to rest their birds by stopping this racing season. The birds are just recovering and slowly giving hopes for 2011 season. 2009 Race Season Overall Champions List Trophy Trophy Winners Champion Trophy I. Anbu Raj Long Distance (Marathon) Trophy I.
