Danny de Voogd of the Zeelandic Yerseke made a drastic change in the pigeon sport in the winter of 2016/2017. He decided to sell all his racing pigeons, with which he had been very successful for years, to fully dedicate himself to the extremely long-distance races with morning releases. However, after some time passed, Danny discovered he lacked the saintly patience for this discipline and thus he decided to return to his old love in 2020, the scheduled NPO races. In 2020 he started with a brilliant group of youngsters who did better than good. This time as well Danny is not wasting any time. At the Roye race of last Saturday 24th of April, Danny played 76 pigeons in the eastern district, and he won 58 prizes 1:4 (76%). Below you see the full result.
As is already displayed above, the top 4 prizes were all won by direct pigeons from grandmaster Stefaan Lambrechts. Below we go into further detail about these aces
BE20-6014048, 1st Roye (2.501 pigeons)
The 1st prize was won by this little blue hen. She showed her potential as a yearling and became, amongst others, the 1st Ace Pigeon Young (club) and 2nd Ace Pigeon Young (District East Sector 1 Zeeland). A few impressive achievements of hers are:
BE20-6014005 Red Bull, 2nd Roye (2.501 pigeons)
The young talent Red Bull claimed for himself the 2nd prize of Roye. As a youngling, he was already a champ and as a yearling, he keeps going strong. Several impressive performances of his are:
BE20-6014102, 3rd Roye (2.501 pigeons)
This blue cock got bronze at Roye. He also showed himself multiple times in the top of the results as you can see below.
BE20-6014091 Lief Meissie, 4th Roye (2.501 pigeons)
The last of the illustrious four is Lief Meissie who took 4th place. She too showed her talent multiple times.
Making the right choices
For years Danny was the trendsetter of the scheduled races in Zeeland. Now, after a small excursion on the marathon races, he is once again active on his beloved discipline…. the scheduled races. The choice to return to his favourite discipline, and doing this with the ace pigeons of Stefaan Lambrechts, will certainly once more cause quite the sensation.
