NL00-1581151 is also the dam of our second arrival from Niergnies yesterday winning 2nd club 431 birds.
We really love this blue hen as she has everything we are looking for. She has performed well herself and has a quite magnificent winning DNA right through her pedigree that hopeful should see her breeding more winners in the future.
She is bred from CESAR a winner of 6 x 1st clubs for us when he was paired with a daughter of ZAPATA (Son Bandit x Moonglow) paired with our top breeding hen SISTER SPHINX. This is hen was bred by Rik Hermans and a top breeding hen for us and many others with her offspring into the third and fourth generation.
ZAPATA bred from our old couple BANDIT x MOONGLOW also bred for Steve Price of Price Brothers and Son of Stourport his blue hen GB21V38265 winning 1st Section J by around 25 ypm and 19th Open against 4,367 birds in last years NFC Guernsey and 40th Open Midlands National Weymouth.This beautiful blue hen also has plenty of previous positions being Steve’s 2nd timer from Guernsey MCCC last weekend and we are sure she will come into her own in Classic races as the Distance goes further. She was bred directly from ZAPATA with GOLD DUST WOMAN.
Sister Sphinx responsible for many National,Classic and One Loft winners including:
*1st RPRA One Loft Race 2021 (Chapelford Lofts) winning £25,000
*1st WOESRC Bedhampton 1563 b (Paul Weams via Shaun Stockley
*1st MNFC Carentan 4440 birds (Dean Cartmell)
*4th NFC Sennen Cove 5738 birds (S.Whittle)
*33rd Final Race SCMDPR 2019 vs 2531 birds
As a matter of interest, in 2021 the first Bourges National in Belgium and both the Yearling National and the Old Bird National was won by Olivier Poussart of Vaulx. His yearling National winner agaisnt 24,220 birds was bred by Hok Bommerez from a grandaughter of Pharao a good racing direct son of Rik Hermans Sphinx therefore the full brother of Sister Sphinx. Just good winning bloodlines generation after generation. The Yearling cock now named ‘Stripes Twice’ was pipped into 2nd overall against 57,629 birds by his loft mate and old bird National winner.
