Top result on national Chateauroux (519km) race

This weekend the national Chateauroux (519km) was flown. It was a fast race. We sent a strong team to this national flight. We were however now sure if it would be possible to have birds in the national top of the result. There was a strong upcoming wind predicted from the West to Southwest. All the national winners were expected to be a the longest distances of the eastern part of the province, close to the Dutch border. And indeed, the winners of this race are all located in this region. Our birds showed however that their form is great and fought themselves in the top of the national ranking. Side note: for several birds of our racing team it was their first national race ever.
Our pigeons won the following results:

We are very happy about these strong results. Our birds normally thrive in tough weather circumstances, but they were able to show their qualities as well in these not so ideal circumstances too! Having 21 birds in the national top 200 on a big national races with an entry of more than 21,000 birds make us very proud! We did not enter 100+ birds to achieve this performance, we entered 64 birds and 47 of them won a prize (1/4 wins a prize).
The 6° National Chateauroux (519km) 8,075 birds was won by the blue white flight hen “Blue Widow”(BE21-6138360). Her father is top racer and breeder “Puncher”(BE17-6025361). Her mother is a daughter to “Elektro”(BE08-6174630). “Blue Widow”(BE21-6138360) is a building a top record list. It is now her second prize in the national top 6 on a +500km race. Earlier this season she already won the 1° prize on a very tough Sermaises (362km) race against 1,044 pigeons. “Blue Widow”(BE21-6138360) can do it on the tough races but also on the fast races. She can do it on the longer distances, but also on the short distance. “Blue Widow”(BE21-6138360) flew only some 100km races as a youngster, she needed some time to gain more experience as a yearling. So we think she is only now at her peak and we can expect some more top performances of her in the future.
