***Annabel*** 1st International Narbonne OB in 2016 There are children and grandchildren of the fabulous ANNABEL in this Auction for Luuk Becker. Category: Pigeon Auctions Description Reviews (0) Description When we start out in Pigeon Racing, probably our first goal is to win our first 1st Prize in the local club. In time, we win a few more Club races and we then perhaps win the Federation, even the Combine. We progress further and join the Classic and National clubs, and enjoy some top section and open prizes. But the ULTIMATE prize in long distance pigeon racing is a level way above all those already mentioned, and the BARCELONA INTERNATIONAL is widely recognisd as the toughest and most prestigeous race to win. Why? Because of the flying distances involved, and the sheer number of competing fanciers and pigeons (from UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg) all vying for this ultimate of prizes. Outside of the BARCELONA International, there are several other International races held each year e.g. Pau, St Vincent, Marseille, Perpignan, Agen, and NARBONNE. Each of these races presents different challenges to Barcelona in terms of geographic starting point and flying distance, but they are all equally hard to win … just ask anyone who competes in these races. In 2016, Jan Becker (Luuk’s father) won the NARBONNE International with ANNABEL, flying 667 miles at 1140.6mpm, beating the field of 10836p by 57mpm. In the auction we are fortunate to offer a direct daughter of ANNABEL when paired to the sire of 9th International PAU, plus some grandchildren of Annabel. Since this win, unfortunately, Jan has suffered illness necessitating the transfer of his entire stock loft to his son, Luuk, who now offers all the birds in this sale Children off International winners rarely come to the market without massive private price tags … here you have the ability to bid on and win this lovely 2019 latebred hen in the open market at a price you are comfortable in paying.
