The Casaert family shined again from Bourges

The national race calendar 2009 was opened with Bourges. In the Henegouwse Néchin, they will certainly have thought about the previous year, when Maurice & Gregory Casaert won the 1° National Bourges 13.472 Yearlings with their ‘Footsie’.

 

The Casaert family had then to retain their ‘honour’ in this ‘Bourges I’ of the sport season 2009. And they did it well… Maurice and Gregory managed to have a very early pigeon once again, which didn’t only win 1° club, but also managed to lay claim to a  4° place nationally against 21.972 yearlings! It was the ‘Chequered’ B08-9044041 who ensured a new stunt. He had already won:
’08 Orleans    344 p. 1
’09 Bourges    Club 1
    Nat    21.972 YL 4
’09 Etampes  466 p. 6
’09 Etampes  500 p.  54
’09 Nanteuil  268 p. 32
He is a son of ‘Total’ B07-9023321, self 1° Bourges 481 p. in ’08, 6° Dourdan  999 p., 8° Etampes 589 p., 37° Bourges 1.439 p. (in ’09) (who is a son of ‘Soko 010/06’, 1° Toury 150 p., 3° Prov Tours 2.791 p… x ‘Cher 730/05’ who won 8° Semi-Nat Chateauroux 7.495 p. and is a half-sister of the 3° Nat Bourges YL ‘08) x ‘Florence’ B07-9023172 (daughter of the 1° Orleans 274 p., 1° Chateauroux 880 p. and 9° S/Nat 11.526 p… : ‘Matteo 272/04’ x ‘Maranello 463/01’, a daughter of ‘Nasdaq’: 1° Nat Souillac 7.154 p.).
Last year son Sébastien (racing under the name Casaert -Sénéchal) switched over from Saint-Léger to Kluisbergen (Russeignies), where a new house was built, with corresponding beautiful loft accommodation of more than 49 metres + aviaries for the pigeons. Last year a fine team of youngsters was housed and raced from the new lofts… which was now subjected to the first serious test of the new sport season, namely the ‘Bourges I’ at the end of May for yearlings! Sébastien left with a legion of 48 pigeons for the club in Lessen, and this team of yearlings achieved the following overwhelming series:
Bourges 600 Yearlings in Lessen :
1,2,3,4,6,8,10,11,12,16,18,20,22,23,24,29,35,37,38,51,62,63,72,74,78,79,83,en …37/48 by the 156° prize in the club !
Nat.     21.972 YL    5,6,13,32… according to the first forecasts !

It was 2 hens… called ‘Steffi’ and ‘Stecy’… who achieved the double at club level, and are classified respectively at a 5° + 6° place nationally against 21.972 yearlings. Both ‘ladies’ had already proven as youngsters that they were a cut ‘above the rest’… they achieved the following honours list
:

-the ‘Steffi’ B08-9044245 is self a daughter of the ‘Stan’ B04-9134039, self 1° club 811 p., and 2° Semi-Nat Chateauroux 11.526 p. ’06,, 2° Chateauroux 880 p. ’05, 2° Bourges 379 p. ’05 and already father of the 1° S/Nat Chateauroux 7.495 p. and fastest of 19.021 p. (coming out a direct E.Limbourg: the ‘Spencer 676/01’ x ‘Gladys 135/99’) x ‘Viviane’ B07-9023387, half-sister of ‘Vince’: 1° La Souterraine 5.621 p. with a 15 minute lead, 4° Nat Limoges 15.364 p. (and so daughter of the ‘VIP 131/99’ x ‘Chanel 615/02’ who is a daughter of ‘Nasdaq’: 1° Nat Souillac 2000).

Amazing how the Vandenabeele pigeons (and their descendants) went on the rampage this weekend from Bourges with 2° + 3° Nat Yearlings and 5° Nat Old in Dentergem by ‘maestro’ Gaby himself… the 4° Nat Old by Rik Cools… and here then the 6° Nat Bourges Yearlings by Casaert –Sénéchal!
