“Figo” bred and owned by the Reynaerts. Not only did “Figo” win 1st National Bourges from 12,266 pigeons his blood lines are responsible for pigeons winning with up to 99,000 birds competing from Passendale in West Flanders near Roselare.
Many experts agree that in the year 2001 the “Figo” was the best Middle Distance Pigeon in all Belgium. The “Figo” a magnificent pigeon. As a yearling he took the 1st prize 3 times from Chartres with 7, 5 and 2 minutes lead.
In 2001 as a two year old the “Figo” raced even more impressively: On the 6th May, he won 1st prize from Clermont, 176km, on the 23rd June the 1st prize from Chartes, 296km with a 4 minute lead. On the 30th June the 1st prize from Tours, 426km against 593 pigeons again with an 8 minute lead. On the 21st July the 1st prize from Blois, 388km. Then came the National from Bourges, 425km he won the 1st prize in the Marking Station with a 15 minute lead. Provincial all West Flanders the 1st prize with a 4 minute lead against 1,213 pigeons, and the National 1st prize against 12,666 pigeons. Altogether he achieved within 2 years nine 1st prizes and often with minutes leads.
These nine 1st prizes were won mainly with several minute leads. Besides these 1st prizes he won many more absolute Top-prizes. “Figo” the Super Racer is one pigeon that Antoon and Hilde will never sell for all the money in the world.
“Goen” At the end of the eighties and the beginning of the nineties our “Goen” (The Good One) was a spectacular Top-Ace. All together he only raced for two years, but in that short time he won ten 1st prizes and five 2nd prizes besides many other top prizes. While the “Goen” was still sitting in the race loft we had already bred youngsters, which were top class from the start. We quickly learned he was not only a superb racing bird but an excellent breeder as well. The beast was that his sons and daughters were also good racing pigeons as well as excellent breeding stock. In many other lofts the quality of the “Goens” offsprings were very soon recognised.
The “Figo” whose father was the “Schicht” B 3138647-92 is a grandson of the famous “Goen”. He is also a direct brother to the “De Kiezer”. The “De Kiezer” won seven 1st prizes as a yearling and up to three years old he won altogether thirteen first prizes without duplication. Today he is sitting, the same as the “Figo” in the Renaert family’s stock loft. The mother of the “Figo” and the “De Kiezer” is the “Crissie” she’s from the “Hengst” from Robert Venus fourteen times 1st prize-winner paired to the “Sissi” a daughter of the “Goen”.
