Many Congratulations must be given by us to our friend Peter Embregts Theunis from Hoeven on a spectacular performance yesterday even by his own standards in this same Peronne race against 19,963 birds winning 1st,2nd,3rd and for good measure 14th,15th,20th,22nd,27th,43rd,45th,50th,52nd and so on . His first three birds were of his renowned Super Rossi bloodline but interestingly his first and third birds were of a new cross with Willem de Bruijn. The winner was bred by Willem direct from Uranus with daughter Super Rossi, second bird was from a son of Super Rossi and his third was from Lichte Super Rossi with a co breeding daughter of Murphys Law. Fantastic flying by a fantastic fancier.
