Great result on first long distance race

With hot weather and head winds (again!) the first long distance race from Pithiviers was raced, 528 km. Team Sangers basketed 16 pigeons and 12 prize cards, that is 75% prize percentage! The first pigeon won 30th NPO of 6,699 birds and regional from 1,890 birds the series are:
5th-15th-31st-37th-39th-48th-60th-63rd-91st prize

Sangers-Ung got 6 prizes of 7 entered, which crowns him ‘grandmaster long distance’ in the magazine Het Spoor der Kampioenen. The first Sangers pigeon is the NL16-1259638, bred from ‘Bratt’ – a full brother of ‘Kittel’ Van Den Bulck. Mother is ‘Flowerbomb’, bred from the old Sangers icons ‘Fast As Lightning’ (NPO topper and super breeder) x ‘Edani’ (Europa Cup).
