This young cock is another new recruit for our long distance breeding loft. He was bred by the Dutch Marathon Champion Cor de Heijde from Made out of his very best.
His father is the ‘Bordeaux’ winner of 1st National Bordeaux against 4,509 birds from over 600 miles. He was bred from a full brother of the famous ‘Harry’ of Jan Hooymans paired to a daughter of Cor de Heijde’s basic cock ‘Don Michel’.
Mother of ‘Son Bordeaux’ is bred from two of the best ever long distance pigeons ‘De Favoriet’ and ‘Marmelda’. ‘De Favoriet was the winner of 4th National Dax 11.753 birds~ 33rd National Cahors 13.185 birds ~ 52nd National St.Vincent 12.992 birds ~ 65th National St Vincent 11.985 birds ~ 82nd National Bordeaux 13.242 birds ~ 116th National Dax 3.600 birds and ‘Marmelda’ was the winner of 1st Dutch Olympiade Marathon Asduif at the Portuguese Olympiade ~ 7th National Bordeaux 18.023 birds ~ 7th National Cahors 13.185 birds ~ 22nd National Bordeaux 13.242 birds ~ 45th National Montauban 18.668 birds ~ 113th National Bergerac 4.884 birds.
