The brothers Leroy (Racourt, BE) achieved a fantastic racing season!

With no less than 7 provincial victories won in the province of Liège during the last season, the Leroy Bros deserved their reputation as a top loft. A 2012 season which was crowned by a classification in the national championships of the KBDB!

A national classification would have been even more amazing! In fact, the brothers classified their super hen as 7th National Ace Pigeon Longer Middle Distance KBDB but they could have hoped for more. They were beaten by their own pigeon as their wonderul hen was beaten by two birds from her own loft in the provincial race from Argenton where she won the 4th prize against 1,121 pigeons. But, in Racour like anywhere else, nobody has a crystal ball which could have helped them. However, this hen is a true phenomenon as she won three of the seven provincial victories of this season! An exceptional pigeon! We already talked about her first triumph of the season, Orléans, whilst she won her second provincial race a few weeks later from Bourges. Everybody would have said that she would have start to be tired but it wasn't the case! Have a look at her list of performances

- The 079 (BE11-1001079)

Sire: Son of the 13 (BE 04-1001187), super racer with Dizy 1/107 p., Villers 1/596 p., Dizy 3/327 p., Trelou 5/249 p., La Ferté 5/904 p. etc. As his name explains, he is a son of the 13 x Daughter Bordeaux. The 13 has won 5 x top 10, 2 x 1st + 22th nat Limoges and is himself a son of the Theunis, base pigeon of the loft from which the blood flows in almost every pigeon in the loft (origin Grondelaers via Theunis). The Daughter Bordeaux (4 x top 10, 1 x 1st as a youngster) is daughter of one of the old glory of the loft, the Bordeaux, who classified himself 3 years in a row at the head of the provincial result of Bordeaux with a.o. a 6th national against 4,101 p. for the provincial victory.
Dam: Van Elsacker hen (BE 07-1056176) bought as an egg at Van Elsacker-Jepsen (Schilde), crossing between Den Asbond x soeur 2e As Pigeon Union Anvers '03.

As said above, they could have won a better classification if their hen wasn't beaten by her loftmate from Argenton. At the interprovincial, she won the 4th prize against 1,121 pigeons while the Leroy Brothers started the result with the 1st and 2nd place! And, seeing the low coefficients achieved this year (never seen before), they paid it in cash! It's quite simple, her coefficient of 0.3568% obtained during this race could have been transformed into a coefficient of 0.1784%, which would have given her a coefficient of more or less 0.59%, enough for 2nd place! If, is a small word, but in this case it means a lot.
