The combination Casaert-Sénéchal (Russeignies, BE) once again at the top of the belgian pigeon sport

Booking fantastic victories at local, regional & provincial level with fantastic arrivals while you can see the opening of some nice perspectives for the national championships of the KBDB: it's time to make the first balance of the 2018 season for the combination Casaert-Sénéchal and we must say it will probably be an unbelievable one!


Sébastien avec sa championne de 2018.

Sébastien Casaert doesn't really need an introduction. Being a pigeon fancier since his birth, he is the son of the legendary Maurice Casaert and he will become himself a legend. Sébastien is know to be a wisperer from the pigeon sport, a skilled fancier who has this so called 'know how' who allows him to feel perfectly the things at the right moment. The person who think they know everything about the pigeon are probably lying but we are forced to admit that there are some fanciers able to see the things better and faster. Sébastien is one of them. And when you give exceptionnal pigeons to such kind of fancier, the results are fantastic and superior to the average. Two years ago, Sébastien accepted the proposition of Nikolaas Gyselbrecht: racing under the PEC banneer with pigeons exclusively bred by the PEC. It allowed Sébastien to get some flying machines but also to focus exclusively on the racing aspect of the pigeon sport. For him, earning so much time is priceless because the only thing he has to do now is to make sure to get the full out of his racing team but also from himself.

Sébastien: 'I knew the potential of these pigeons because i already had the opportunity to handle them. Moreover, i already knew the breeding lines and also the results booked by Pascal Arien when he started to race them. I knew that with a clear & strong racing philosophy combined to fixed goals, the results will be quickly satisfying. PEC's philosphy, whose main goal is to always strenghten its breeding through the purchases of ace pigeons, allowed them to built one of the strongest breeding loft of the world. Then, it was clear that breeding very good pigeons to give them to very experimented fancier would lead to get some astonishing references.'

Focus on the 2018 season

The condition was obviously good since the start of the racing season but over the last few weeks, the Casaert-Sénéchal pigeons have been clearly superior in their speciality: the national races from 400 to 600 kilometers. This year, the flying conditions are far to be easy for our pigeons with heat and wind on the face most of the times. But it seems it has no impact on the PEC/Casaert-Sénéchal pigeons who are doing good with it. The racing team is clearly on the right tracks and, once the first pigeon has arrived, the loftmates are quickly coming back home too, allowing this loft to book fantastic results. Let's have a look by yourself:

In total, no less than 34x top 100 national until the 30th of june!!!

New Freddy, Wacko Freddy, Porsche 911 & the others

The notorious 'Porsche 911' is currently the main pigeon behind the PEC project and it seems that the season 2018 will be marked by his impact until the last weekend of competition. A few weeks ago, we already talked about its influence on the racing team from the Racing Team ADK colony (click here to read the report published a few weeks ago). It seems that it is now also relevant to the Casaert-Sénéchal racing team. Like we said in the introduction of this report, some nice perspectives are currently opened for Sébastien for a classification into the national championship of the great middle distance ace pigeons KBDB who became a reality thanks to the 498/17 who just booked her 4th necessary prizes for a ranking on the race from Guéret with the 18th national against 8.493 yearlings. Now, we just have to see if she can improve her coefficient and which ranking she can end to. This being said, Sébastien already excelled on this discipline as he already won the titles of 1st National Ace Pigeon Great Middle Distance Old Pigeons KBDB in 2013 (with 'Nikolaas') & 1st National Ace Pigeon Great Middle Distance Yl KBDB in 2011 (with 'Amalia'). By the way, the 498/17 is a granddaughter of this famous 'Amalia' (sold to PEC after her title). It prooves once again that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. For Sébastien, this obviously represent a symbolic since despite the fact he races the pigeons he received from the PEC, his current best racer is bred from the line of one of the best pigeon he ever raced. The 498/17 has also some of the same caracteristics 'Amalia' had when she was the star of his racing loft.

Brive & Guéret

The race from Brive (23/06) & Guéret (30/06) were heald two weeks in a row and these two weekends can be rightly considered as the two hardest of the season with a very strong wind on the face and very high temperatures who contributed to make these races complicated, mostly for the yearlings. It didn't prevented some pigeons to book some great performances of course and once again we could find the descendants of the 'Porsche 911' line on top of the result. Those raced by Casaert-Sénéchal but also from some others lofts won some significative results. Have a look by yourself:

On Brive, two yearlings bred from the same pair brilliantly accomplished their test as they were both classified into the national top 28. Their grandfather (mother side) is the famous 'Porsche Cayenne', a full brother of 'Porsche 911' and then bred from 'Wacko Freddy' x 'Lieve'.

Concerning the race of Guéret, of course we are still thinking about the performance of the '498/17' (see above) but there is more: we must also talk about the '393/17' and the '405'/17', two hens closely related to the 'Porsche 911' line and who won that day the 40th & 82th national Guéret against 8.493 yearlings!

Wacko Freddy x Lieve: the super breeding pair from PEC

We are curious to see what will reserve the next weeks of competition, mostly on the one day long distance race where this loft will certainly try to win a few classifications into the national ace pigeons from the KBDB. Anyway, Sébastien Casaert is now sure to attempt to the national days at the end of the year. But will he get back home with one or several medals? To be continued.
