- This is Special One bred by Jan Hooymans direct from Harry and he is the father of our third bird this week NL16-1626900 now a winner this season of 21st Combine Criel 3,001 birds, 32nd Combine Melun 3,880 birds and 63rd Combine Morlincourt 4,947 birds.
Saturday was a return to Criel for the next program race.
Club 279 birds…3rd,4th,5th,6th,12th,17th,18th,19th etc
Altena & Raamsdonksveer 1094 birds…8th,9th,10th,14th,
Union de Baronie 3001 birds…14th,15th,21st,36th,73rd..
First two birds were gift birds as youngsters from Jan Hooymans and raced by us and are both scoring for the first time. Both are of course bred in the purple and we hope for good things from them in the future as the distance increases.
It is also very pleasing to report that our own bloodlines are working well for Jan Hooymans from the word go. His yearling blue cock NL16-1663495 bred direct from our great cock Blue Baron (Now owned by Hooymans) when coupled to a daughter of Harry scored again on Saturday making it 5 times very early in the prizes and is currently Jan Hooymans Number 1 nominated old bird.
Our 3rd bird was NL16-1626900 for 21st Combine 3001 birds a steady yearling for us also scoring 32nd Combine Melun this season against 3,880 birds and 63rd Combine Morlincourt also this season from almost 5,000 birds, being bred from ‘Special One’ a direct son of Harry of Hooymans when coupled to a daughter of Belofte (Brother Blue Baron) x daughter Top Star.
Fourth bird was NL16-3627932 a winner of 1st Quievrain 1,103 birds for us last year as a youngster being bred from our very good breeder ‘Top Star’ (Young King x Chanel) paired with a daughter of ‘Blue Baron’ x ‘Britney’ (Chico x Astrid).
