Guido Loockx (Tessenderlo, BE) consistently securing ace pigeon titles thanks to the golden Pantani lineage

For decades, Guido Loockx has been a prominent figure in Belgian pigeon racing. With 3x 1. Nat. (2x Bourges with Pantani and Prinses, and Argenton with Rossini), a multitude of provincial wins (a total of 49!), Olympiad pigeons, national ace pigeons, and championships, ...

With the superb pigeon Pantani, BE96-6038445, Guido Loockx propelled himself into (inter)national pigeon racing stardom. This champion won 1st National Bourges against 10,872 birds, was crowned 1st Olympiad Pigeon Allround '99, and achieved 5th National Ace Pigeon KBDB Middle-Distance, among other accolades. Despite considerable interest from buyers, it was decided not to sell Pantani, a decision that proved to be golden. Not only did he become an integral part of Guido's own loft, but he also contributed to successes on other lofts both domestically and internationally. Renowned fanciers such as Gaby Vandenabeele, Flor Vervoort (whose Aske Flor Vervoort also became Olympiad Pigeon Allround '03), and many others benefited from Pantani's breeding prowess. The following lineage breakdown illustrates Guido's meticulous breeding techniques in preserving the Pantani lineage and ensuring ongoing top successes.

For those who thoroughly examined the above pedigree, it's evident that Guido Loockx's breeding strategy and the preservation of the Pantani genes are paying off. This is clearly evident in sisters Nina & Ninja. Pantani appears an impressive 4 times in the pedigree of these super pigeons.

  • 1. Prov. Ace Pigeon KBDB Great Middle-Distance

Both Nina and Ninja are grandchildren of Satan x Kai-Mook (1st Olympiad Pigeon Half Fond 2011). Another grandchild of this remarkable pair is Super 35, BE21-5041335. Here's her impressive track record from 2023:

Nafi... and the circle is complete...

The final top pigeon we'd like to introduce is Nafi, BE19-5074133. She is also a granddaughter of Satan and a half-sister (same father) of Belgium's Best, which we started this report with. And thus, the circle is complete. Nafi also boasts impressive credentials, having won:

  • 4. Best Bourges pigeon 2021 - 2 prizes
  • 7. Nat. Ace Pigeon KBDB Great Middle-Distance 2021

The presentation of the above champions clearly demonstrates that Guido Loockx is a master at preserving the superb genes of his golden boy 'Pantani'. Many years after the top performances of this champion himself, the inbred descendants continue to achieve national victories, national ace pigeons, Olympiad pigeons, and more. It seems like an endless source of champions!
