First race of the season was from Bierges 117 km to Nieuwendijk. Liberated into a north east headwind the race turned out to be very testing however we are very happy with our team performance.
The club sent 437 birds and we scored 2nd,7th,9th,12th,14th,16th,17th and so on.
First bird was NL20-1608518 bred in conjunction with Jan Hooymans and he is a full brother to our super racer ‘Cesaer’
Our second arrival was NL22-2217946 a son of Diamond King (Wolverine x Sanjay 1) with Stefanie (Said in Spun Silver x Robben Island). No better Mike Gnaus bloodlines exist. This yearling cock also scored well as a youngster and a full brother from 2021 is also a good winner.
“Diamond King” is developing into a special breeder with reports of his offspring winning for others as well as in our own loft.
Third bird was NL2021-1275107 a previous winner of 3rd Union de Baronie 542 birds and 8th NPO Issoudun against 2467 entries last season.
