Both the national races from Cahors and Gueret were scheduled this weekend, and it turned out to be quite a memorable weekend for Chris Hebberecht. We all know that Chris has been one of Belgium’s best long distance fanciers for many years. The long distance and extreme long distance are his two favourite disciplines, and he has managed to achieve brilliant results in both of them.
Cahors was another race where the Hebberecht pigeons have really managed to excel. Chris won 6 prizes with 6 pigeons or a 100% prize percentage, as well as 4 top prizes at national level. His nominated pigeons arrived home in the following order: 2-1-3-4-5-6.
Cahors lokaal 247 olds: 4-7-9-10-27-71 (6/6) Prov 1,357 olds: 15-33-35-36… (6/6) Nat 6,576 olds: 30-85-92-93-288-1114 (6/6)
The group of four pigeons that was responsible for this achievement consisted of three direct sons of Jaws (three half brothers bred from the same sire but with a different partner), as well as a son of stock breeder Champion:

Gueret club 543 olds: 6-55-59-74-76-139-140-149… (9/11) Nat 12,516 old: 290-13147-1370-1726-1760-2920-2924-3094 (8/11) Gueret club 732 yearlings: 11-26… (with 1st and 2nd nominated) (6/16)
This performance from Cahors opens up new perspectives, especially with the long distance classics that are now coming up in short succession. A Hebberecht pigeon in good shape has great potential, as you can tell from previous seasons. And we have no reason to believe they would not be in great form this season. We reckon that the race from Cahors was just an appetizer, a prelude to an impressive 2015 season. Congratulations Chris and Kathy!
