While Mike was traveling around in Holland looking for that super bird he received a phone call about this special male that was the fastest 4 different times against 25,000 plus birds each week. He drove directly to the home of Joep Koch to check this phenomenal bird out. Wow, he was very impressed with the handling of this special bird called “The President”. The body, medium in size, like a one piece frame, very buoyant with a one pin tail. Wing, short arm with super ventilation and soft feather. The eye of a tiger, very strong, rich in color, one of the nicest breeding and racing eyes that he had ever seen.
