コーエン・ミンダーホウド - カウデーケルケ(オランダ)、ピティヴィエ5015羽中1位。

For the all time Zeelandic champion Koen Minderhoud, the Teletext flight from Pithiviers was the perfect opportunity to show that his loft has plenty of talent. It was Blauw Roodoogje who took the provincial win against 5,015 pigeons. He is the new star of this excellent loft.

Although pigeon racing is usually impossible to predict, you could say that the provincial win for Koen Minderhoud did not come as a surprise. In the month of May Koen managed to improve on the performance of his team. His pigeons have now found their best form and were able to win in Zeelandic Flanders. Their recent results:

This weekend’s winner was the three-year-old hen NL09-3912393  Blauw Roodoogje. She won against more than 5,000 pigeons and reached a speed of 1,250 mpm. But she is not a one race wonder. She has been very successful in province 1 Zeelandic Flanders:

      1°  prov. Pithiviers       - 5,015 p.
      9°  prov. Breuil le Vert   – 8,762 p.
      15° prov. Orleans          – 6,067 p.
      23° prov. Niergnies        – 8,381 p.
      35° NPO Bourges            – 4,847 p.
      61° prov. Morlincourt      – 8,236 p.
      80° prov. Morlincourt      – 9,903 p.

Blauw Roodoogje was bred from Blauw 522, 2 x 1st ace pigeon in the district and the winner of 1st NPO Tours 6,144  pigeons, 1st Chantilly 1,474 pigeons, 1st Arras 388 pigeons, 1st Orleans 260 pigeons, 1st Chateauroux 86 pigeons, 1st Creil 79 pigeons, 2nd Peronne 10,041 pigeons, 2nd Morlincourt 1,478 pigeons, 5th Peronne 2,105 pigeons and 6th Peronne 10,861 pigeons. Blauw 522 was paired with Barney 742 and that makes Blauw Roodoogje a full sister of top class breeder Super 169. This champion is father of Blue Power 408 (2x 1st and 4th National Orleans), 407/09 (3 x top 30 prov.), Blauw 176 (3x 1st and 2nd NPO Orleans) and De Kras 957 (8th Nat. Chateauroux). He is also the grandsire of the amazing Het 45je, 1st prov. ace pigeon in 2009 and 4th nat. ace pigeon all round Europa Cup 2009.
