Danny Senden traditionally uses a very small basket for the National long distance races, however he is able to bring remarkable results to the table. Danny keeps his pigeons together with his brother Luc in Herk-de-Stad in Limburg, they have a reputation for achieving great results with a small basket. The Senden brothers won their first provincial victory in 1990 from Châteauroux, they won the car race from Bourges in 1996, and they have continued to increase their level of performance from 2010 onwards.

5. National Acebird Great Middle Distance in 2014
One of the highlights in the racing career of Danny and Luc Senden came in 2014. BE13-806 ‘Daluka’ had a super racing season and became 5. Nat. Acebird Great Middle Distance Yearlings KBDB 2014. This top racing hen is now one of the basic breeders at the loft.
The best of Pros Roosen and Bart Geerinckx
The foundation of their pigeon breed is fairly straightforward. The two brothers were good friends with the late Pros Roosen, and many of Pros’ best pigeons were moved to the loft in Herk-de-Stad. Some of his pigeons were used for a joint breeding as well. The current pigeon breed of Danny Senden consists of pigeons with Pros Roosen origins, mainly the bloodlines of ‘Freddy’ and ‘Blauwe Prins’. Another main bloodline at the loft are these of the super pigeons of Bart Geerinckx. Especially the offspring of ‘Gladiator’ and also the ‘Wittekop Sylvester’ lines are performing very well.
