Yesterdag the first one day long distance race has been flown in Section 1/Zeeland '96 in the Netherlands. The other sections will start in two weeks.
At the first 500+ km race father Joost & son Jacco De Ridder from Arnemuiden won 6th NPO Tours 4,100 pigeons with NL12-3202277, a 50% Ebbenpigeon. The father of this cock is their famous 'Primavera' which has been sold on DreamPigeons for 6,700 Euro last year. The mother (NL09-1971054) comes from us and is a daughter to our NL07-1513778 'Cyrus', a superbreeder and son to NL03-2083516 'Roosje'. Below you can find the pedigree.
Also nice to know is that Jacco & Joost not only won the 6th NPO but also 27th, 75th etc. Their 3rd pigeons which won the 75th NPO vs 4,100 is also a son from our hen, mated to a different cock!
