CC Poggenpoel and his sons Melvin and Jaquesco are household names in South Africa when it comes to one loft racing. They have won 9 one loft main races to date.
On Friday the 26th of July their birds won the following in 4 different One Loft competitions:
- 1st Carnival International Challenge Hotspot 4 with PSWU 18/176 "THRILLER 3"
- 1st Winners Flight Hotspot 4 with PSWU 18/4638 "GMAN 2". The nestmate PSWU 18/ 4637 "GMAN" was 12th in the same race.
- 1st Race II EC National Loft with NOK 18/2023 "KEEP ON WINNING". In the previous races NOK 18/3376 "KAROO KOOS" won 2 x 1sts.
- 2nd Hotspot 4 Cradock Community OLR with NOK 18/2170 "POG SPRINTER".
CC Poggenpoel & Sons is without a doubt one of the best one loft competitors in South Africa. Their secret; they buy top performers in One Loft races, cross them with the their own pigeons and enter youngsters from these matings in one loft races.
Congratulations on an excellent achievement.
