Kader is wellknown in South African racing pigeon circles and needs no introduction. His hometown Stellenbosch is the second oldest town in South Africa and one of the most beautiful towns in the world and home to many rich and famous South Africans.
Kader's stock loft houses many pigeons from the most famous fanciers in the world like Gaby Vandenabeele, Alfons Klaas, Rudi De Saer, Mike Ganus, Gunter Prange and many more.
Kader enjoys the youngbird races and had his best result ever on the 11th January in the race from Citrusdal 150km. Members is limited to only 10 pigeons per race and 17 members entered birds in the Citrusdal race.
Conditions were excellent with a headwind all the way. Kader never expected all his birds to arrive together at the loft but that is exactly what happened after 2 hours and 5 minutes after liberation. He clocked his 10 entries in 12 seconds taking 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10 in the club. 5 of his 10 birds were bred by Bertus. Any of the 10 birds could have won the race. The birds bred by Bertus were 1,2,3,6 and 9.
The birds bred by Bertus:
1st ZA 19/180060 - grandson of 15509 (she won 1st union in EPPU) and she is a daughter of super breeding pair SONNY BILL (Golden Eye x his own daughter) and BLOUE MARIEKE (BAKLEIGAT BLIKSEM x MARIEKE JUNIOR).
2nd ZA 19/179978 - daughter of super breeder "77" (son of BLIKSEM 34) and 15509 (1st union winner EPPU and daughter of SONNY BILL x BLOUE MARIEKE).
3rd ZA 19/180043 - daughter of super breeder BLIKSEM 34 (BAKLEIGAT BLIKSEM x DOGTER BLAUWE BLIKSEM) and daughter of MARIEKE JUNIOR.
6th ZA 19/180067 - son of JONGE NEPTUNUS (sire of 2 Combine winners) x BLIKSEM 00368 (BAKLEIGAT BLIKSEM x BONTE BLIKSEM).
9th ZA 19/179992 - son of super breeding pair SONNY BILL (Golden Eye x his own daughter) and BLOUE MARIEKE (BAKLEIGAT BLIKSEM x MARIEKE JUNIOR).
All five pigeons bred by Bertus are descendants of BAKLEIGAT BLIKSEM (a son of Gaby Vandenabeele's famous BLIKSEM) and one of the best breeders Bertus ever owned.
Congratulations Kader! This result will set the benchmark for your youngbird races in the future.
