Many early prize cards on middle and long distance

We had another successful racing weekend. Last Saturday no less than three races were flown. In France the weather was good and the birds had to deal mostly with headwinds. In Belgium however the weather circumstances were far from perfect (dark weather) and the wind turned towards the West (tailwind). Our birds confirmed again their excellent form.

Our pigeons won the following results:

We will start with the Chevrainvilliers (354km) race. Our first arrival was the checkered hen B17-6025006. She is a daughter to “Casino”(B11-6282003) who is one of the best children to “Elektro”(B08-6174630). B17-6025006 is a half-sister to “Hilda”(B15-6026036), 1° fast. Souppes (357km) 10,926 pigeons (hard weather circumstances). The mother of B17-6025006 was an excellent racing hen and is a daughter to “Salgo”(B07-6221050).

Our second arrival was the checkered hen “Porsche”(B16-6032345). She is a half-sister to “Mustang”(B14-6175237), 1° fast.

As a baby she only flew some short distance races. Last year she showed her potential by winning the 14° National Chateauroux on the last race of the season! Now she is a more experienced bird and we expect that she will win some more early prize cards this year!

The second race this weekend was the provincial flight Blois (462km). We entered only yearlings on this race.
