*Propere Rik…proving to be an exceptional line.
Dixie Dean Cartmell’s team are in top form this year..out of four races he wins 1st Heart of England Fed for the third time last week from Blandford and the week before he won 3rd Heart of England Fed from Purbeck after a bad trap clocking his second pigeon first!
From Blandford his winner was a yearling bred from the Father of his MNFC Vire winner last year bred from a son of Amulet (Hannibal x Stardust) with Sister Sphinx bred by Rik Hermans. The mother of his Blandford Fed winner if from a daughter of Propere Rik paired to Perfect Lady (Mario x Daughter Drum & Agent Starling), also responsible for prize winners last season.
Guildea , Son and Williamson win 1st and 2nd Fazackerley HS from Frome against 228 birds with a hen that won 1st club 3rd North Liverpool Fed last year as a Y.B.. She is bred from a son of Propere Rik x Sunday Girl paired with Steves ‘Good Hen’ previous winner of 5th MNFC winner through King Kanon with daughter of Attila x Little Star.
Steves second bird was from his son of King Kanon (Kanon x Sister Propere Rik) paired to Seren (Daughter Di Caprio).
Kanon is bred from a son of Rik Hermans Propere so this line is working very well for them.
Very well done indeed to all involved.
