We can add another great reference to our list. The winner of the famous South African Million Dollar Race 2020 is a 25% Hok Jos Vercammen bird (through Boris Sovic)!
The final race was a very tough one (too tough?). The birds had to fly 600km and they had to deal with headwinds and a temperature that rose to 32°C. On the first day only three birds arrived. For the final race more than 1,900 birds were basketted.
The winner made it home in 12 hours and 27 minutes which equals an average velocity of 802 m/min.
In the pedigree of the winning hen “Marjana S”(SLO-107-19-5368) our hen “Sister Mitu”(B02-60285069) can be found twice! She has been an amazing breeding hen at the loft of Boris Sovic. She bred amongst others 1st National Ace-pigeon in Slovenia, 3rd National Ace-pigeon in Slovenia, 1° National Sibio (620km) etc.
The winner of the South Africa Million Dollar Race, "“Marjana S”(SLO-107-19-5368)"
Our basic bird "Mitu"(B02-6058048) is closely related to the South Africa winner of 2020
Many congratulations to Team Barbara and Miha Sovic from Slovenia!
