Many strains can do the job, but if I were you I wouldnt get hung up on a strain of pigeons, my advice would be take your time and study the results of fanciers nearby the area you are planning to compete in and purchase a full round of young birds or latebreds from the stock loft of a fancier who is winning out of turn in these short races preferably this fancier doesnt have the best drop or isnt favoured by the wind most weeks.
You are then giving yourself the best odds of obtaining some good pigeons that will be competetive in your chosen area. The rest is then down to you. Good luck in your quest.

for me sprint racing is more about your system and the man behind it but with distance its more about the birds themselves jmo i like the gevaert van schoorisse pigeons they have loads of character
