This pigeon comes from a successful family, as her father was the winner of three first prizes against an average of 1,450 pigeons. It is a full brother of ‘Leontien’, which won no less than 10 first prizes against an average of 3,500 pigeons. The mother of NL11-4222756 is a direct daughter of Olympiade from Heremans.
The top-class hen NL09-1102428 took the victory from Boxtel (143km), where she was basketed as the first nominated bird. She has also won 1st provincial against 12,828 pigeons with a speed of 1,315 m/m. The father of this hen is ‘Rock a Billy' (comb. Den Haan) and stems from a son of ‘613’ from De Klak x a granddaughter of ‘Afgekeurde’ from the Janssen brothers. The mother of NL09-1102428 is a direct hen from Pieter Veenstra, which is a daughter of Zoon Superkweker x Amira.
It seems that the loft of Adrie Kors is all ready for the one-day middle distance NPO races starting on 26 May. After his two convincing victories, he is the man to beat.
