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.
24/08/2019: 2° Melun (310km) 1,433 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!
Arrival number three and seven were two nest-sisters, the checkered white flight hen B19-6016285 and the blue hen B19-6016286. They are still very young but it is not the first they won a early prize. They are babies of “Green Elektro”(B16-6032101). 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.
