"Cobra" was the #1 Young Bird in all California 2003 and one of the very best Young Birds in all of America that year.  "Cobra's" race record at the Combine level for the final-3 long Young Bird Races was spectacular. "Cobra" won 1st Overall CA State Hall of Fame 2003 in the largest division and also had the most points of all the divisions. At the time there were close to 1000 lofts in California so this was quite the accomplishment.  "Cobra" also won 1st Middle Distance North American Ace Young Bird 2003 and 5th Overall North American Ace Young Bird 2003.

 

With his great race record and collection of awards, it should come as no surprise that "Cobra" is Father of (15) x 1st Place or Equal 1st, including the 1st Place Overall Club Champion Old Bird 2008 and the 1st Place Long Distance Club Champion Old Bird 2007.  His Son "King Cobra" flew every long distance race on the schedule in consecutive weeks as a yearling (doing well on all of them and winning diplomas at both 500 mile races). As a result "King Cobra" won 1st Long Distance Club Champion Old Bird 2007.  The following year as a two-year old, "King Cobra" won the first 3 races in a row and had an outstanding season, as a result he won 1st Overall Club Champion Old Bird 2008.  "Cobra's" Son "King Cobra" excelled from 100 to 550 Miles fast or slow flying each and every week, in fact he flew 29 consecutive races between his Young Bird, Yearling, and Two Year Seasons.  Other Children of "Cobra" are 1st Place Winners including a Daughter who won 1st @ 232 Miles (all alone 47 minutes ahead of 2nd Place).  "Cobra" is now Grandfather of (10) x 1st Place or Equal 1st.    

 

"Cobra" is also a Brother to several top breeders like "Maverick", "Red Viper", "Viper 2.0", and "Viper Jr." (Father of "Venom"). He is a Direct-Son of "Viper" who has been the #1 Red Janssen Breeding Male in America over the last decade. "Cobra's" Mother is a Daughter of "The 686" and "Super Fly" who are two of the best foundation breeders ever in America. "The 686" (Sister of "Cher") is responsible for hundreds of winners and over (25+) National Awards, multiple one loft and futurity winners, etc.  "Super Fly" was the #1 Breeding Son of Mel Miroth's legendary "Wildthing".

 

"Cobra" is a slightly smaller than medium sized male with a leaner type body and a very "smart" look.  He has a solid frame and strong back, silky smooth feather, tight vents, a nice vibrating wing, and a brilliant violet pearl eye with a large circle of correlation.  "Cobra" is not what I would call a great handling pigeon (like his Father) but he is still pretty good and I think one of those pigeons whose intelligence and heart made up for the little bit of power he was lacking.  It takes a remarkable pigeon to compile the collection of National Awards that "Cobra" did, and it takes an even better pigeon to produce so many winners.  "Cobra" has proven to be one of the elite racing and breeding champions.
