Ben won with the Eijerkamp pigeon , a Heremans-Ceusters cock, the first short distance race of the season.
Ben acquired this cock direct from Hans and Evert Jan Eijerkamp.
The "093" has as his father "Ferrari Rossi" and his mother is BE 12-6121478 "Janneke".
In the pedigree of the "093" we find many top pigeons such as , , , , , , , , etc.
In 2016 Ben did not fly the "093" as he had been moved to the breeding loft.
After thinking about it Ben regretted doing so and this year has placed him back on the race team.
The "093" rewarded Ben directly for doing so, with this win on the very first race of the 2017 season, in Kring 3, Sect. 9.
