Jan Hooymans (Kerkdriel,NL) has Holland's latest sensation in his collection with New Harry

New Harry gained international fame just recently, thanks to a public auction in which he proved the most expensive young bird yet. But that is not the only thing that makes New Harry a famous bird. His excellent race results and his breeding potential have turned this New Harry into an iconic new bird in Jan's collection, following in Harry's footsteps.

Probably the best grandson of Harry ever born

New Harry pretty much copied his grandfather: he also won two first prizes in major competitions. He was particularly successful in races in rather difficult conditions: New Harry claimed his two first prizes in races with a strong headwind, reaching a velocity of around 1200 m/min. New Harry was raced by Christian van de Wetering. 

New Harry and his impressive palmares.

New Harry paired to Alexia, a unique opportunity

Harry is not the only pigeon to stem from the famous Jonge Bliksem x Dirkje combination. In 2010, this pair bred racing bird NL10-1864544, which was later renamed Alexia. She won a 1st NPO Chateauroux, and she is now the dam of another NPO winner. Alexia was also paired to New Harry, and together they bred NL19-1022622. This is in fact the only youngster from this combination, and this pigeon will be offered for sale by Jan Hooymans in a one-off auction.
