Congrats! Is 300 mile considered medium distance or long distance race? I am thinking that 400-500 miles are long distance and anything above that very long distance.

Here is a good family of those Van Reets you were looking for.

I have also had luck with some of my Van Reet Crosses. Funny that I thought they were sprint birds, but I found out a few days ago that I had a 1/2 Van Reet win at 250, a day bird at 400 and finish 9th in an old bird 500 in Grand Junction last year.

Sound like a nice family of Van Reets you have there. Have they won at longer distances?
