Leo & Gerry Dockx (Koningshooikt, BE): thanks to Gaston Van de Wouwer and his golden Kaasboer bloodline

In Koningshooikt, a sub-municipality in Lier, in the province of Antwerp, Leo & Gerry Dockx have been following the record breaking tot sale of Gaston Van de Wouwer very closely. After all, Leo & Gerry owe a lot of their success to Gaston.

The Kaasboer dynasty is now a thing of the past, at least in the lofts in Berlaar. However, its descendants will most likely continue to achieve great results in the next several years in pigeon lofts across the globe, and especially in China.

 

Leo and Gerry Dockx and their (grand)sons Niels & Dries

PIPA & Gaston van de Wouwer worked together for the first time in 2009, when two youngsters of Kaasboer were sold for 3,000 to 4,000 euro per bird. Kaasboer was only known in the Antwerp region at the time but he would soon turn into one of the most famous pigeons of all time. The ten year collaboration between the Van de Wouwer family and PIPA led to a fantastic apotheosis just a while ago: the 445 pigeons were sold for a record 9,551,200 euro, or an average of 20,992 euro per bird.

Leo & Gerry Dockx got in touch with Gaston Van de Wouwer already in 2008. They received a lot of good advice, and they also got to know the Kaasboer bloodline, which already had an international reputation at the time. That's right, pigeon fanciers from across the globe considered Gaston's pigeons to be the best of the best. And some fanciers would almost worship Gaston for his incredible craftsmanship. It was thanks to Van de Wouwer, his invaluable advice and his pigeons that the Dockx family could start writing their own success story in pigeon racing. We introduce you to some of their biggest stars, and their pedigree leads us straight to Gaston Van de Wouwer.

Strong results in Noyon

 

Niels & Dries.

The top results in Noyon were won by their (grand)sons Niels & Dries. One of their prize winners was BE19-6098641, a 1st Ace Pigeon Mijlstraat Noyon. We take a look at his results in Noyon:

13/401; 47/931; 2/676; 58/833; 28/639; 6/277; 6/344,2/295; 1/60; 3/214; 2/122; 7/228; 5/118; 7/277; 5/95…

This prize winner from Noyon is closely related to the Kaasboer bloodline from his mother's side, as you can clearly tell from his pedigree.

 

Racing cock BE19-6098846 has won a 4/219; 5/160; 1/104 and 1/119 from Noyon. As far as origins go, we focus mainly on his dam, which is a sister of New Kim. New Kim made the international headlines because she was sold for a record 1,600,000 euro in our PIPA auction, making her the most expensive hen ever. And her bloodlines can clearly be seen in the pedigree of BE19-6098846.

And while we are on the topic of Niels and Dries's remarkable results in Noyon: nest mates BE20-6201799 + 800 are first prize winners too. And their parents originate from the bloodline of Laura & Palme d'or. Their 799-20 became 1st Ace Pigeon in the Pallieterverbond in his first year, thanks to the following results in Noyon: 1/799; 7/308; 10/531; 16/629; 18/846; 24/348; 13/305; 3/202. This is an impressive palmares in Noyon, and he also delivered in Quievrain: 23/398, 4/244. Nest sister BE20-6201800 claimed two first prizes in Noyon: 1/348; 1/202, as well as 33/541, etc.
