Marc De Cock (Temse, BE) wins 2 x 1st Provincial in two weeks' time

Marc De Cock has done it again: he has claimed a 1st provincial from Chateauroux II, as well as from Orleans, three weeks earlier. It shows that he has plenty of talented breeding birds in his collection, capable of breeding race winners every single season.

A solid season

Marc De Cock is having yet another great season, although he was able to win a provincial first prize only in the last part of the season. His 2018 season would have been great even without a provincial victory, but a first prize is of course a lot more appealing to most people. An important victory was bound to come with such a talented group of pigeons. Marc is not a complainer but we would like to point out that the pigeon lofts in the easternmost part of East Flanders were not very lucky with the wind direction this season. Nonetheless, the team was able to add two provinical first prizes to their palmares this year: the yearlings' race from Orleans and the young birds' race from Chateauroux..

Orleans (29/07/2018) - Provincial victory with Miss Orleans (BE17-4094190) of 853 yearlings

The provincial race from Orleans was won by Miss Orleans, the fastest of 53 yearlings. In addition, she finished in the top 5 in the doubles, claiming a 4th of 658 pigeons.

This is her palmares:

1st  Provincial Orleans (853 yearlings)
4th  Provincial Orleans (658 olds) - doubles
59th Provincial Orleans (1,329 yearlings)
82nd Provincial Orleans (1,066 olds) - doubles
85th Provincial Bourges (3,886 yearlings)
89th National Zone B1 Bourges (6,920 yearlings)
382e National Bourges (19,133 yearlings)
124e Provincial Chateauroux (5,209 yearlings)
305e National Zone B1 Chateauroux (8,486 yearlings)
894e National Chateauroux (27,081 yearlings)

This hen does have an impressive pedigree, originating from an impressive 3 Olympiad Pigeons: Eagle Eye (Erik Limbourg - Brussegem, BE), Mystery Lady (W. De bruijn, NL) and Bold Eagle (Marc De Cock).

The sire of Miss Orleans is the sire of the aforementioned Olympiad Pigeon Bold Eagle (Olympiad Pigeon Cat. C Brussels 2017 and 13th National Ace Pigeon KBDB 2016 long distance).

The dam is a daughter of two other renowned birds: Eagle Eye (5th Olympiad Pigeon Allround Dortmund 2009 / 4th National Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB 2008) x Mysterie Lady (Olympiad Pigeon Long Distance Poland 2011).

Chateauroux (18/08/2018) - Provincial first prize with Miss Chateauroux (BE18-4164182) of 3,206 young birds

The team's second provincial first prize came from Miss Chateauroux, winner of a 1st Provincial Chateauroux of 3,206 young birds.

This is her palmares:

1st Provincial Chateauroux (3,206 young birds)

2nd Noyon  (1,358 young birds)
73rd Noyon (1,315 young birds)
96th Noyon (1,176 young birds)

She is a half sister of Rockefeller (candidate for title of 1st National Ace Pigeon KBDB Allround) from the same sire, a full brother of Super Ace (6th National Ace Pigeon KBDB Long Distance 2014).

The dam of Miss Chateauroux is a daughter of superpair (Brother of 3rd National Ace Pigeon KBDB Long Distance x Sister New Eagle Eye).

This is a fantastic pedigree that deserves a special mention indeed.

Plenty of talent in the breeding loft

We rarely get to see such an impressive collection of talented pigeons in one and the same loft. Marc De Cock can rely on an astounding group of top quality bloodlines: Olympiad Pigeons, national ace pigeons, and national and provincial winners. You can find them all in the breeding loft here in Temse.

Be that as it may, the stakes are high here in Temse, and only the very best birds survive. But that is what it takes to build long term success. You can tell from his provincial first prizes that Marc De Cock still has a fantastic team of pigeons, which has been adding top prizes to their palmares on a weekly basis. We are already looking forward to their next milestone.
