A A. Saarloos & Son, Klaaswaal
It was a tough season in 2016 but that was the same for everyone. Despite the decision to place the Crack 808 in the stock loft there were a number of newcomers who did fantastically well for themselves. Once again from the lines of D’n Arie, Son Witslag and Torero a 2nd National Ace Pigeon. All of them are related to the super couple Barcelona 5 x Daughter Apollo 905. This was “The Blue Dusk” this year’s topper who won good prizes and is a great addition to the very strong racing loft of Saarloos & Son. Last season as a yearling “The Blue Dusk” showed his colours from Agen winning a 386th National. This season he arrived on time from Pau winning a 291st National to follow it up from St-Vincent ZLU with the 1st in the marking station and a 12th National and 3 weeks later another 1st in the marking station and the 27th National Perpignan.
Despite the loss of the 2nd National Ace Pigeon ZLU 2015 the “Super 24” to the stock loft, this season brought another topper crowned 2nd National Ace Pigeon; “The Blue Dusk”.
This year in our auction on TopPigeons we have another batch of beautiful youngsters bred from prove ace pigeons. From a loft that houses a genuine strain of pigeons, originating from family breeding of Noel Peiren. The strain that has made Gerard Koopman the National Champion of the afternoon liberations, to name but one. This was mainly achieved with birds that for the greater part carried the Peiren bloodlines.
