Yesterday saw the 6th and last race of this seasons Middle Distance Championships of our Combine Union de Baronie. Normally there are seven races however one was cancelled earlier in the season due to weather conditions.
We were very happy to win the Sprint Award earlier in the season however we are obviously delighted to also win the Middle Distance award after the results of this weeks race.
There was 213 competing lofts for these Championships with many top names in the Pigeon Sport so it is an honor for us to win both categories this season.
In the Middle Distance Ace Pigeon Championship we finished with 2nd and 12th Ace Pigeon Awards. We went into this last race with our very good cock NL14-1168708 (Max x Stella) in second position however he made a mistake in this race and returned our last bird at 6.30 in the evening!!Still he lives to compete another day and has never the less accumulated enough points to win 12th Ace Bird.
Our best bird that scored another early prize this week was our super cock ‘De Cryuff’ NL14-3432678. He wins 2nd Ace Pigeon Union De Baronie for 2016…he also won 2nd Ace Pigeon Union De Baronie in 2015….so two times 2nd in two seasons.
He is bred down on his mothers side from a daughter of our great racer ‘Mike’ NL11-1867164 winner of 1st Ace Pigeon Union De Baronie Middle Distance 2013 winning 11 prizes in 12 races Sprint and Middle Distance. His father is ‘Top Star’ a great breeding son of ‘Young King (Young Couple) x ‘Chanel. His mother is ‘Sterre’ a daughter of ‘Jonge Super Champ’ (Son of Super Champ Orlando Verbree x Dtr.Godfather).
This seasons 1st Middle Distance Champion beating us into 2nd is NL14-1168957 raced by Peter Admiraal of Werkendam. A few seasons ago, Peter said he would like to breed together our Top Star with an important hen of his. This resulted in two youngsters for Peter that he retained for his own breeding loft where they have performed very well including one of them breeding NL14-1168957 !!
So to breed Ace Pigeons this proves you need to start with a family bred from Ace Pigeons, preferably National Ace or Olympiade winners. The pedigree of ‘Top Star’ contains nothing but…
