Great season for Grégory Farétie with one more ace pigeon!

Grégory Farétie won the first speed ace pigeon, first place in the championship with the most prizes and the third step of the podium with the first 5 entries (ST-Omer Grouping). Focus on most important pigeons of this season.


FR348318.19 1st  on 2720 pigeons at the first speed race (16 april, Breteuil)

The 348318.19 came first in front of 2720 pigeons in a north wind, he’s no more and no less than a son of “Hervé”: 1st Ace pigeon of Saint-Omer group in 2018 and 2019 (100-250kms) with 42 prizes out of 46 entries.  His son was placed eleven times this season.

FR 157781.21, “le prometteur”

FR 157781 is a 2021 single (Gregory doesn’t play youngsters) with an 80% price tag and is also a son of “Hervé”. He’s a bit like the Poulidor (always second) of Eperlecques, Greg wanted to present him because he has confidence in him “If all goes well he will still evolve and he could have an excellent season in 2023”

281879.18 is an extremely difficult pigeon to hold, we had to take a picture of him in his box with his female. His father is once again Hervé, on the mother’s side we find origins of Maurice Mattheuws
