National winners yearlings: Freddy & Jacques Vandenheede (Zingem, BE)
Freddy & Jacques Vandenheede score their 4th national victory in three years' time. After the 1st National Bourges yearlings 2009, the 1st National Bourges old birds 2009 and the 1st National Argenton old birds 2010, now they win the 1st National Tulle yearlings.
Freddy & Jacques Vandenheede already achieved massive succes this season with no less than 6 provincial victories up to the previous weekend but the 1st National Tulle is the icing on the cake for one of the best middle distance and long distance colonies of Belgium. Note that the 1st National Tulle is a full sister of the 1st National yearlings in 2009.
