Each Million Dollar Race not only features the regular training flights but also five Hot Spots. The winner of a Hot Spot race traditionally wins a car. There is also an ace pigeon ranking based on these five Hot Spot Races, and the best pigeon across these five so called car races happens to be a Belgian bird of team Kerckhove-Vercauteren.

Ignace Vercauteren, the breeder of Blue Jenske BE17-4216235, founded his racing team around the best bloodlines of two highly renowned fanciers. Click here for Blue Jenske's full pedigree.

Rudi De Saer has really become a consistent performer in South Africa. Last year for instance we had Steve Mardis of Continental Loft USA winning the final race of the Million Dollar Race with a 50% De Saer pigeon - see pedigree.
