The national winner was the super cock Hattrick, rung with a Portuguese ring. This cock was named Hattrick as Lubomir took the first three places in the race and also because this was the third time he has won the national from this racepoint. He was the victor in 2012, then 2017 and now in 2018. The reason that this cock has a Portuguese ring on it is because Lubomir is in partnership with Portuguese fanciers in the Portugal Derby, through his friend Martin Steffl of Germany.
Hattrick after his winning performance
In 2012 Lubomir won the same race with the super pigeon Dark Toni against 29,171 pigeons, later this pigeon won a silver medal at the Olympiade in Nitra. Dark Toni is a super son bred from his base pair, Toni and Olympic. Dark Toni is a full brother of another iconic pigeon in Lubomir's loft, Blue Toni. Blue Toni was a gold medal winner in the pre-olympiad show in Brno in 2014. Blue Toni represented the Czech Republic three times in olympiads and pre-olympiads during his life and was a also bronze medal winner at the Olympiade in Budapest in 2015. In 2017 Lubomir was the winner with superman Bingo against 30,179 pigeons. (See article here) Bingo is a super racing cock with three x single first prize against thousands of pigeons! This year's winner named Hattrick was bred from full sister of Dark Toni and Blue Toni, that means it was bred again from the base pair, Toni x Olympic. The sire of Hattrick is a direct son of the base breeding hen, Sudorka. Sudorka also bred the olympic cock, Calibos and the pre-olymic pigeon, Super 613. Do not forget that the national winner from Knokke in 2016 in a race over 1,000 km was a direct son of Toni, mated with a super daughter of the iconic Yvan of Herbots Brothers. (See article here)

Lucky 13 won fifteen cards in fifteen races as a yearling and was 1st Prov. Ace yearling (2nd National)! Lucky 13 is grand-daughter of his Olympic cock named Calibos, which again comes from the base hen Sudorka! Lucky 13 is the dam of Maxima which scored last weekend 17th place from I.

Six days after the national race from Krajkova there was the first long distance race in MMDT competition. It was from the race point of Koblenz in Germany and is 704km to Lubomir's loft. It was a very correct race, the pigeons needed to fly more than ten hours with the speed of the winning pigeons being 1,154mpm. Lubomir scored with the first three pigeons in the race, clocked within two minutes of each other.
The winner against 2,241 birds was Gregorian, fantastic racing cock (already 3 x 1st) Gregorian comes from two original Van Hove- Uytterhoeven birds. Gregorian was followed by the great racing hen Ella, which is again a grand-daughter of the base pair Toni and Olympic. Third was Bull bred from the great breeding pair Van Hove and Magda. Sixth position in the race was cock No. 429, which is grandson of Dark Toni!
So now Lubomir has another star in his breeding loft thanks to his Toni family of pigeons, Van Hove! To say that he is happy with his Toni family and Van Hove would be an understatement.
