Marc De Cock (Temse, BE) wins first provincial Cahors in East Flanders with his New Eagle Eye

The provincial win from Cahors is the first important victory in the 2013 season for Marc De Cock!

It was only in January 2013 that superstar Marc De Cock sold his entire collection of old birds in a PIPA internet auction. He only kept a few late youngsters of 2011 and some young birds of 2012; they had to safeguard the future of the Marc De Cock pigeon family. His remaining collection consisted only of top quality pigeons of course, bred from the very best breeding pigeons from his lofts in Temse. There was no doubt that a some of the pigeons from this unique collection would develop into the new stars of the loft. It was just a matter of time before one of these high quality birds would win a top prize or an impressive victory. This is the new generation with which Marc De Cock plans to regain his place at the top.

We did not have to wait long for the first achievement of this new generation. The pigeons from Temse did very good already in the race from Cahors with a provincial first prize and a national top prize. His New Eagle was the fastest of 1,754 East Flemish pigeons in the race. He had already impressed Marc two weeks ago by achieving a fifth place from Limoges. Last weekend New Eagle aimed for the provincial podium and he achieved his goal by taking the provincial first prize. Let’s take a look at his current achievements:

New Eagle is a late cock of 2011 that was trained together with the young birds of 2012; he gained his first experience in the autumn classics. His pedigree is a collection of well known names and nothing but phenomenal champions and top class breeders, both on his mother’s side and his father’s side. This bird is the living proof that good blood never lies; talented pigeons will achieve great things sooner or later.
