*This is NL17-3723721 ‘Cesar’.Last year as a young bird he won 1st Orleans , 17th NPO 7,383 birds…1st Fontenay 232 birds, 42nd NPO 9,425 birds…30th Combine Morlincourt 3,124 birds . This week he won 40th Combine Melun 3,782 birds and last week he won 4th Combine Pont St.Max 4,781 birds & 66th Provincial 22,709 birds!
Yesterday we had a program race from Melun a distance of around 390 km to Nieuwendijk.
The east variable wind made for a very erratic race with big gaps between arrivals. Although we scored 22 prizes from 34 entries at Union de Baronie Combine level we did not get a very early arrival as in past weeks.
Club 373 birds…5th,10th,11th
Union de Baronie 3,782 birds…40th,66th,67th
First bird was once again NL17-3723721 Cesar who is turning into a very consistent young cock haveing scored early this last few weeks.
Our second bird this week was NL16-3627930 that also scored three for us last season season bred from our very good breeding cock ‘Belofte’ the full brother of ‘Blue Baron’ when he was coupled to ‘Angeline’ another top quality Embreghts Theunis hen out of his top couple ‘Warrior Boy’ and ‘Blue Diamond’.
Our third bird this week was NL17-1288983 bred and gifted to us by friends V Helden and Zoon.
We had a call from Peter Embreghts-Theunis to report his super racing hen NL17-3715027 ‘Athena’s Rossi’ winner of 1st Provincial Ace Youngster Brabant 2000 last year was his first arrival yesterday from Melun winning 30th Provincial against 19,405 birds. Lets hope she is hitting form at the right time with the NPO Classic races only two weeks away. She is bred from Peters top cock ‘Super Rossi’ coupled with ‘Sun’ a hen we bred from ‘Propere Rik’ x ‘Athena’s Best’.
