8 first prizes on Blois (462km) against all the big shots!

We were not thinking about a top result today on the Blois (462km) race. The birds had to deal with upcoming tailwinds. As we race at the shortest distance of our club, we did not have the best location at all. Our birds showed however that they are very hard to beat this year. They crushed the competition. We won no less than the 8 (!) first prizes. We beat famous names like Geerinckx, Van Dyck, Roodhooft, Wouters, De Scheemaecker, Van Gastel etc.

Our pigeons won the followings result:

08/09/2018 Blois (462km)
Club St. Job 521 youngsters: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-13-20-23-27-28-33-39-40-44-45-51-52-…  42/80
Some remarkable facts:
- The youngsters who win the first 8 prizes are ALL descendants of our super breeder “Elektro”(B08-6174630)
- The super talented checkered cock B18-6020315 won last week 1° Melun (310km) 434 pigeons and now he wins 4° Blois (462km) 521 after 3 loftmates. So actually he wins 2 first prizes in two weeks!
- The beautiful hen B18-6020291 wins on 3 weeks in a row: 1° Chevrain (354km) 848 pigeons / 11° Melun (310km) 762 pigeons (after 10 loftmates!) / 7° Blois (462km) 521 pigeons (after 6 loftmates). So actually she would have won 3 first prizes, if not beaten by loftmates.
- We have only two babies of “Delphine”(B11-6282004) for the races this year. They win on this race the 2° and 4° prize.

This young birds team is really unstoppable. Also the week before they showed their fantastic qualities. As you can see we entered the week before more birds than this weekend. This is because some of them are already stopped racing. They earned their spot for next year.
