First middle distance race of the season was raced from Melun a distance of around 385 km to Nieuwendijk.
It was a a good working race with a stiff headwind and returns were very spread out. We won the club but our second bird was over four minutes later for second prize and our third arrival was over thirteen minutes later. Once again we had a very good team performance and the birds will be all the better for five to six hours on the wing.
Club 387 birds…1st,2nd,18th,25th,27th,28th etc
Union de Baronie Combine 2811 birds…10th,22nd
Brabant 2000 Provincial 15,957 birds…40th,100th
Our first bird was once again our super racing hen NL20-1581151 winning her second race of the year so far with now a total of 6 x 1sts in total. She is bred from CESAR a winner of 6 x 1st clubs for us when he was paired with a daughter of ZAPATA (Son Bandit x Moonglow) paired with our top breeding hen SISTER SPHINX. This is hen was bred by Rik Hermans and a top breeding hen for us and many others with her offspring into the third and fourth generation.
