Blue Shadow, a special bird at a young age
Racing bird NL19-1622040 rushed home to take a top result in three races already, which put a smile on the face of her owners. She has won quite a number of prizes at an early age, and she was the fastest bird on three occasions in Frank and Cor's loft. This resulted in the following palmares:
13-07-2019 Quievrain 1st prize in RMO M-H East against 1,227 pigeons 16-08-2019 Pt. St. Maxence 1st prize in province 5 against 15,064 pigeons 24-08-2019 Pt. St. Maxence 9st prize in province 5 against 13,509 pigeons 2nd prize in Rayon Central against 3,923 pigeons
It is worth noting that the '040' claimed a first prize on 16th of August with eggs in her bowl. Another week went by, at which point she had been brooding for 23 days. It was decided to give her a youngster instead, and she promptly claimed another top result: a 9th provincial!

Daughter of Blue Tornado and granddaughter of Super 08 x Quicksilver
It was announced earlier this year that the sire of this Blue Shadow was the 3rd best pigeon in The Netherlands in the WHZB/TBOTB competition in the sprint category. And this bird in turn stems from Super 08 x Quicksilver. This hen from 2009 is already the dam of 10 first prize winners in big races, and Quicksilver is now starting to produce first prize winners against thousands of pigeons as well, spread across different generations.
