This is Blue Cock (probably?) GB16V49083 and he is Lot 41 in our Blackpool auction in January. At the moment this young cock is still carrying 7 nest flights however he has developed exceptionally well in the body. He is of medium size with a tight one pin tail and he is maturing into a buoyant very muscular shape that is perfect for classic middle distance races.
To say his bloodline is outstanding is to put it very mildly as he is bred from the very best classic and National winning bloodlines available anywhere in the world at the moment. He is an excellent example of our only breeding theory…the very best crossed with the very best inevitably produces the very best…we forget about the inbreeding , line breeding or any other theories….its simply as many classic winning genes as possible into just one pedigree…as close and as recent as possible..not ancient history!
His sire is Propere 10 bred by Jan and Rik Hermans from the ultimate of their all conquering bloodlines. Father of Propere 10 is Propere their base breeding cock that is responsible for a multitude of National Ace KBDB and National race very early prize winners. I include a montage of Propere that details a proportion of his breeding achievements and it must be noted that these were achieved by various fanciers around Belgium. Winning for other fanciers under different methods and in different locations is a true sign of an outstanding breeder and it can be clearly seen why he is so highly thought of by Belgium’s most serious fanciers.
Mother of Propere 10 is the incredible Athena. I also include a montage of her and again it demonstrates not only her fantastic racing performances but her outstanding pedigree. Once again it must be noted that her brothers , sisters and children are achieving super results at the very highest levels of competition for many top fanciers of the Pigeon Sport. You will also see that a direct daughter of Athena is Nike and she won 1st National Bourges in 2016 for Rik Hermans flying almost the longest distance of the race in difficult conditions. Bourges is the most prestigious and famous race in the Belgian National program and is subsequently the most competitive and hardest to win.
Dam of Lot 41 is Foxy Lady one of the greatest racing hens of Europe of the last decade. Not only are her racing results quite fantastic but her pedigree needs reading several times to appreciate how many Dutch and Belgian National Ace winners and World famous top multiple performers are close up in her pedigree.
Lot 41 is the image of his grand sire Propere and handles almost the same being small to medium size, muscular and with dark rich brown eyes .
It would be difficult breed anything better to introduce the pinnacle of winning genes into the most ambitious National or Classic fanciers loft.
