    I'm clueless about this topic, however I'm interested in how this works. When the bird is released how does it know the course of the race? Also how in the heck does it go so far away and find its way back so easily?

    In the time of "CORONAVIRUS WORLD WAR – 3" in 2020 when your own life is at the hands of a invisible pandemic it's cinema and documentaries that breaks all barriers and provides solace and entertainment in the confines of a house.As a lifelong sports enthusiast and a silver jubilee pathological gambler on horse racing decided to understand the sport of pigeon racing.Picked the right documentary and found this video extremely educating to a novice from Mumbai in India where pigeon racing does exist in a few city's. Surprised to know that China is the country that now monopolizes "Pigeon Racing" purchasing the costliest racing "Armando " for 1.4 million U.S dollars. Thought only race horse cost that amount of money. Surprised that the Royal Family of England is also actively involved in "Pigeon Racing" as i was under the impression they only raced horses. One of my favourite boxer's Mike.Tyson is a pigeon fancier and If "PIGEON RACING" existed in Mumbai i would definitely have been a active player in this bird sport. Ahoy !

    I still don't understand what makes a racing pigeon different from the one on my fire escape? Also, why is one racing pigeon more valuable than another racing pigeon? I'm confused.

  25. J-Dog776 says

    Imagine the look on that guy’s face when his 1.4 million dollar pigeon inevitably struck an eighteen wheeler.
