Velghe Frans and Kris (Zwevezele, BE) win 1st provincial from Blois yearlings from the I.W.V.

The least we can say is that Frans and Kris Velghe are busy with an extremely strong season! The provincial victory from Blois by the yearlings was a crown on their work!

Frans and Kris have raced the entire season at the forefront in the light long distance and long distance races in the coast province . In the race from Blois during the weekend of 16-17 July they won the 1st provincial by the yearlings, with a pigeon which was being trained for an (intern)national competition at the end of the 2011 season . It is a summer youngster which in its birth year raced  2 x Arras, 1 x Clermont and 1 x Quiévrain, or in other words no further than 200 km .  As a yearling – gently trained – has won up to now :

04/6 Orléans : 58th / 393 p
18/6 La Chatre: Fondclub  82nd / 482 p and prov. the 585th / 2815 p
2/7 Argenton : missed
16/7 Blois : 1st provincial from 547 pigeons. 

This cock has as father the “Late Zoon Bordeaux”: 3185797/06, which is now father of the 55th nat. Soustons 10844p in ’10, father of the 450th Tours 3501p in ’10, father of the 182nd nat. Cahors 8105 p in ’11 and of the 53rd FC Brive op 288 p . The “Late Zoon Bordeaux” is a descendant of the “Geschelpte Bordeaux”: 00-3043357 ( won a.o. 7th nat. Barcelona ’03 from 11806 p, won the 28th nat. Bordeaux 2776p, won the  886th internat. Perpignan 7537 p in ‘03, etc….) with the “Wynants-Galle duivin”: 99-3061125 and she is the mother of the “Geschelpte Bordeaux”, so in other words the “Late Zoon Bordeaux” is a product out mother x son.

The mother of the prov. winner from Blois is the “Blanchaert-dv”: 03-3016016 ( daughter of the 1st Fondclub Barcelona 2001) and that is origin Deprez Eric who this year did very well from Barcelona .
