Phenomenal racing weekend (Part 1/2)

Last Saturday we finally had the type of weather we were counting on for many weeks: headwinds and high temperatures. Our birds showed that day that they are very hard to beat in these circumstances. We had three races: the middle distance race Melun (310km), the great middle distance race Blois (462km) and the long distance race Brive (704km).

In this article you can read about our Melun arrivals. In the next article you can find everything about the Blois and Brive race.

We had a phenomenal result on the middle distance race Melun (310km). We had 9 (!) old birds in the 10 first against 832 birds. No less than 20 (!) of our 34 entered won a prize in the first 10%. Also all our good nominated birds were in the head of the race. It is almost impossible to improve this spectacular result in the future.

Our first arrival was the checkered cock “Didi”(B16-6032013). He is the nest-brother to our super racer “Elektro Junior”(B16-6032012). They are both children to our superbreeder “Elektro”(B08-6174630). Their mother is “Delphine”(B11-6282004).

"Didi"(B16-6032013) was the fastest bird of 1,183 birds on Melun

Our second arrival was the checkered cock B16-6032279. He was our third nominated bird. His  father is a grandson to “Elektro”(B08-6174630). His mother is our top racing hen “Mila”(B15-6026341). She has won earlier this year a.o.  8° S.-national Vierzon (476km) 8,177 pigeons.

Our third bird was the beautiful checkered cock B16-6032176. He is again a direct son to our top breeder “Elektro”(B08-6174630). His mother is a daughter to “Mambo”(B08-6144041).

Our fourth bird was the youngster B17-6025085. His father is bred from our “Mustang”(B14-6175237) breeding line. On the same racing day we won 1° Blois (462km). This winner has got the same father as B17-6025085! The mother of B17-6025085 is “Zwart Panterke”(B12-6196023).

This year he got injured at his crop during a short distance race in the beginning of the season. He needed some time to recover and now he has made his official comeback.  He won 8° against 832 birds on this Melun race.
