The third Natour race was held from Quievrain on Saturday 25th August a distance of around 175 km to Nieuwendijk into a stiff headwind. This resulted into a very testing race with big gaps between arrivals . We were very happy to win with a 2016 son of our great breeder Top Star and we hope we have found another top racer.

Our winner this week was NL16-3627932 bred from our very good breeder ‘Top Star’ (Young King x Chanel) paired with a daughter of ‘Blue Baron’ x ‘Britney’ (Chico x Astrid).
After three races this young cock is leading the Natour Ace Pigeon Championship in the Combine , however we still have a way to go.
Top Star is proving a really fantastic breeder for us, being responsible for our top racing cock ‘De Cruyff’ winner of 2nd Ace Pigeon Middle Distance in the Combine two years back to back.
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 !!
He also bred our good cock ‘Mike’ that was a winner of 1st Ace Pigeon in the Combine Middle Distance four years ago.
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…
