*The featured pigeon here is the Rik Hermans Super racing and Breeding hen Friendship. Our first birds in both Algarve Races today are bred from two different direct children of her.
Today we had the two principle Algarve Races latest races and once again we are very happy having early birds in both. It s still early days but these preliminary races are also fun.
First race was the Algarve Great Derby Race 2 from Evora a distance of 190 km against 2735 birds. This was a good working race with the velocities in the 1200’s.
Our first bird for 15th overall against 2735 birds is Ace of Spades bred from Blue Cloud a very promising young breeding son of our Portugal Pair coupled with Lola a new yearling hen in our breeding loft bred by Rik Hermans from an exceptional couple of his Brother Nike x Friendship.
The second race of the day was the Golden Algarve Race 3 from Portalegre a distance of 230 km against 5028 birds. Our first bird was Big Bad John a son of Hero and other son of Rik Hermans Friendship coupled with Haf a daughter of Caliph x Sunday Girl the daughter of Harry and full sister to the sire of Friendship. Hero also bred our 1st UK 7th International in the Golden Algarve 200km race in 2019.
Our first bird last week Fast Rik is also early this week and will move up the 18th place in the Ace Pigeon Award after three races.
