I think it is amzing that a bird can do it but for pedigree purposes I don't think a 500 mile day bird is all that special these days. It's one thing if it was a day bird and a winner. But if your just saying day bird on the pedigree that means the bird got beat becasue if it won they would be calling it a 500 mile winner. Even if it was 2nd or 3rd. they most likly put that on the pedigree over just saying day bird.most races 300 miles or over are called 2 day races for clocking reasons. But lots of birds can make a 500 mile -600 mile race in a day.--ever thing in their favor of corse.
