Team De Jaeger (Knesselare, BE) has to settle for 2nd national and international Agen yearlings

It goes without saying that Team Freddy De Jaeger is having a strong few weeks. They have already won 8 first prizes and 22 national top 100 prizes, and their best result so far is a 2nd Nat. Age yearlings.

Freddy De Jaeger significantly increased his team's level of performance after he appointed Marijn Laureyns as loft manager about two years ago. National victories, championship titles and ace pigeons were just a matter of time. Last year they won the title of 1st Nat. Ace Pigeon Longer Middle Distance Old Birds KBDB 2014 and 4th General Champion of Belgium KBDB 2014, as well as 6 prizes in the national championships and ace pigeon championships. His achievements have been well documented in the press (those interested can reread the article here).

The 2015 season has been equally successful so far, with an impressive list of top prizes for the team of Freddy, Marijn and Frank. They are quite a tough opponent, having already won 8 first prizes, 12 second prizes and 9 third prizes by the end of June, as well as 22 national top 100 prizes. The crowning achievement would be a national victory of course. They were very close last weekend, having to settle for 2nd national and international Agen yearlings. The team put in a great performance both in the old birds' and yearlings' race:

Agen Club   52 yearlings: 1-5-10
     Prov  611 yearlings: 2-20… (expected top 50)
     Nat 2,767 yearlings: 2-58-255-467-490 (5/9)

Agen Club   84 olds: 2-3-4-28
     Prov  687 olds: 5-9-11… (expected top 50)
     Nat 3,524 olds: 15-34-49-659 (4/5)

It was their Poupol, basketed as second nominated, that had to be satisfied with second place, having only just missed a national victory:

To conclude, we remind you that Team De Jaeger not only won a 2nd Nat. Agen but also a 1st and 2nd Argenton in the club, and a 28th and 29th national. The two yearlings originate from one of their current stars in the breeding loft, namely Aäron. He is a son of Mr. Tulle (1st Nat. Tulle 5,700 pigeons in 2015) x the outstanding breeding hen Tsunami BE04-3230937 (a direct Gaby Vandenabeele, being a son of breeding icon Bliksem).

Freddy De Jaeger had created a solid basis, a breeding loft based on some of the finest bloodlines on the market. It seems that the time has come to reap the benefits, as he has been winning top prizes week after week, with a dominant team of racing birds. He runs currently one of the best, if not the best allround pigeon family in Belgium, having won several first prizes and other top results from sprint to extreme long distance. Impressive!
