Hot weather in the last weekend of August

The fall season is around the corner but in the last weekend of August our birds had to deal with real summer circumstances. The temperature rose to + 30°C and the wind was blowing from the Southeast, meaning sidewinds. As a result the Melun and Vierzon races were quite challenging races. We can be happy about the results! It was good to see that our new topper “Money Maker”(B19-6016105) was again in the head of the race.

Our pigeons won the following results:

31/08/2019 Melun (310km)
Union Antwerpen West 1,106 youngsters: 3-6-10-11-13-16-18-34-39-45-46-59-60-61-70-…  45/66
31/08/2019 Vierzon (476km)
Provincial 286 old birds: 2-8-13-22-23-25-…  18/35

Our first arrival was the dark checkered cock “Money Maker”(B19-6016105). He is really a beautiful bird, middle sized with a great wing and impressive muscles. Normally we don’t give any names to young birds but for this lad we made an exception. He has got a special story. In the start of the middle distance season our young birds had to struggle with a very difficult race, the provincial Fay aux Loges flight. A very strong sidewind pushed the birds away in the direction of Germany. Especially for the non-experienced youngsters this was a challenging race. “Money Maker”(B19-6016105) lacked the necessary experience and he returned only after 4 days. We let him recover. He trained with the other youngsters but he did not participate to the races. In the middle of August we decided to re-enter him on the races. He was ready. We sent him straight away to a 310km race. This was the start of a great trilogy! Every week he could be found in the head of the race.

Talented "Money Maker"(B19-6016105)

The father of “Money Maker”(B19-6016105) is “Armani Elektro”(B17-6025202), another top son to “Elektro”(B08-6174630). His mother is a double grandchild to “Mustang”(B14-6175237), from the pairing “Young Mustang”(B15-6026285) x “Nuan”(B15-6026396). This means you can find three times “Elektro”(B08-6174630) in this youngster his pedigree.

“Money Maker”(B19-6016105) wins on three races a row:
19/08/2019: 7° Melun (310km) 1,455 p.

31/08/2019: 3° Melun (310km) 1,106 p. 

Why did we give him the name “Money Maker”(B19-6016105)? This we might reveal next season when he can continue these remarkable performances. Too bad it was the last middle distance of the season, else he could have gone for a national ace-pigeon position!

Their mother is a double grandchild to “Mustang”(B14-6175237), from the pairing “Young Mustang”(B15-6026285) x “Nuan”(B15-6026396). This means you can find three times “Elektro”(B08-6174630) in their pedigree.
