Ferry Porsche (BE19-4057741) is the pigeon that delivered Deroose the national victory. He is a grandson of the icon Porsche 911. Read everything about this beautiful victory of Dirk Deroose and Ferry Porsche in the following article.
The three PEC lofts of Ariën-De Keyser (Houwaart), Casaert-Senechal (Russeignies) and Karlo Van Rompaey (Sint-Truiden) ensured - excluding the national winner - that there were 15 other pigeons bred by PEC in the national Top 100, either in the old birds or in the yearlings race. Proof of the versatility of the PEC breed. As on Souillac, speed and stamina were both necessary. Pigeons that want to compete for the top spots must excel in both these characteristics. The physical class and the character to push through has to be there. As shown in the past and again on Souillac, this is something the PEC pigeons excel in.
Top performers amongst the old birds
We start off with the results of the old birds race. We find 6 PEC racers in the national Top 100, good for 2nd-th-6th-15th-66th-73rd National against 4,476 old birds.
As the runner-up, winning 2nd National, we find Ariën- De Keyser with the cock BE20-4157446. This crack has a beautiful pedigree. Amongst his grandparents are some famous PIPA Elite Center breeders. The 20-446 is a grandson of New Laureaat, Wacko Freddy and Lieve.
