Pattaya OLR (TH): non-payers

Not long ago, the top 100 finalists and top 100 ace pigeons of the Pattaya OLR were sold on PIPA. It was an immensely successful auction, but unfortunately, some buyers failed to (timely) pay for the pigeons they purchased. As a result, PIPA decided to re-auction these unpaid pigeons, offering a renewed opportunity to acquire one of the standout performers from the world's largest One Loft Race!

March auction

Fortune in misfortune for interested bidders, you could call it. Because transportation possibilities can sometimes be disrupted by Avian Influenza or other measures, or because certain bidders may not always be able to pay for their purchased pigeons, PIPA auctions off these unpurchased pigeons several times a year. A varied selection of pigeons, but in the auction, diamonds from golden lines often shine - just as you are accustomed to from PIPA.

Etienne Meirlaen (BE)
Offspring of special pairs

As one of the finest long-distance players in modern pigeon racing, Etienne Meirlaen is a prominent figure in the pigeon world. With icons like Yelena, Monar, Montali, and the Marseille dynasty, he made a name for himself and dominated many international races. An interesting phenomenon here is that pigeons achieving top results at the national and international level from Marseille races often turn out to be outstanding breeding birds later on. The two recently crowned national ace pigeons – 1st Nat Ace Pigeon Rhône Valley KBDB '23 and 15th Nat Ace Pigeon Extreme Long-distance YL KBDB '23 – are no exception, descending from Montali and/or Monar. On PIPA, Etienne now presents a small but exquisite selection from very exclusive pairings: - Yelena’s Ace (2nd Nat. ace KBDB) x Daughter of 2x 1st Nat. ace - Yelco (7th Nat. Montauban) x daughter of Montali & All In One - Father of Yelena’s Ace x Daughter of Yelena’s Ace - Double granddaughter of Olympic Monar - Son of 2x 1st Nat. ace x Daughter of Diamond Anita - Yelena’s Ace (2nd Nat. ace KBDB) x Miss Narbonne, 1st Int. Agen hens & 3rd Nat. Narbonne

Jos & Lars Vercammen (BE)
Youngsters from the best breeders & racers

Carrying the title of 1st National Champion Great Middle Distance for old & yearling pigeons in 2022, the Vercammen team continued its unstoppable momentum in 2023. Whether facing weeks of headwinds or soaring speeds, the Vercammen pigeons are capable of dominating under all circumstances, from middle distance to the grueling Nationals. It's hard to find more all-round pigeons. In this auction, offspring from prominent Vercammen pairings are offered, such as Elektro Junior x Mustang Baby... from Iron Man x Cuba... from Golden Elektro x Madrid... from Iron Son x Elektro Lady 68... from the parents of El Muro... from London x Pink Elektra, the parents of Madrid... from Didi x Wizzy Elektro... from Green Elektro x Black Angel... from Ito x Paulina... and from Puncher x Super 100.

Ad Fortuin (NL)
Youngsters from the best breeders & racers

The series of highlights in the long-distance races over the past years seems endless for Ad Fortuin. After the 1st Nat. Agen 2018, 1st Int. St. Vincent 2019, and 1st Nat. Perpignan 2022, 2023 brought another remarkable achievement with the 1st Int. Pau, achieved by Lloyd Laureaat. Mentioning Ad Fortuin inevitably leads to Batenburg-Van De Merwe, whose pigeons largely form the foundation of the unprecedented success streak mentioned earlier. Ad now offers young pigeons from his best racing and breeding birds in an auction on PIPA. Among them are offspring from the top pairings: - Lloyd Laureaat (1st Int. Pau) x Yfke (1st Nat. S2 & 3rd Int. YL Narbonne) - Mamba x Willeke’s Laureaat, parents of 3rd Int. ace Perpignan 2022-2023 Maradona & 1st final Ribera del Orbigo OLR) - Maradona (3rd Int. ace Perpignan 2022-’23) x Venus (5th Int. ace YL 2022) - Faas (13th Nat.

Bart Geerinckx (BE)
Youngsters from the best breeders & racers

Described recently as the architect of a unique pigeon lineage, Bart Geerinckx truly lives up to this title. The way Geerinckx's pigeons consistently shine worldwide is truly impressive. Not least in his hometown of Wommelgem, where Bart has been at the top of the National rankings for years. On PIPA, Bart presents a selection of young pigeons from all his very best breeders and racers. Think of the new sensation Super Yearling and his superb son, 6th National Ace Pigeon KBDB 2023 Magic Star, think of Lotus and his top daughter, 1st National Ace Pigeon KBDB Twinkle Star, think of top racer Little James and his father Last Brother; direct offspring from all these top-class pigeons are up for auction.

Best Dutch Pigeons (NL)1
PEC Special

During the first two auctions on PIPA, Best Dutch Pigeons offered a glimpse into the super class it harbors in its lofts.

Youngsters from the best breeders & racers

The brother duo Jeroen and Stijn Rans have firmly established themselves at the top of the heavy-duty pigeon racing scene in recent seasons. Titles, major victories, and ace pigeons have become commonplace for them. Think of phenomenal triumphs like 1st Int. Barcelona 2019, 1st Nat. Pau 2017, and 1st Nat. Perpignan 2017... but also numerous (inter)national titles and top rankings in recent years... The men are undoubtedly the cream of the crop in long-distance racing. In the auction, there are offspring from distinguished breeders and flyers, including direct descendants of Jef, 1st Int. Barcelona, acquired again at the Batenburg-Van De Merwe auction on PIPA in early 2023. But also included are offspring from foundation pigeons Frans, Ed, and Zwarte Weduwe... and from national top flyers like Katrien, Special Narbonne, Astrid, Child Aagje, Pierre, Luna May,..

Mike Ganus (US)
Youngsters from the best breeders

The fame of Mike Ganus extends to every corner of the pigeon world.

Van Ouwerkerk-Dekkers (BE)
Youngsters from the best breeders & racers

When it comes to International races that are particularly challenging, one can always count on Jacques, Irene, and Vincent; also known as Van Ouwerkerk-Dekkers. The nature of their breed ensures that these pigeons excel consistently in races like Perpignan, Barcelona, St. Vincent, or the demanding One Loft Races. Of course, the name of the 1st National ace pigeon Poco Barcelona immediately comes to mind, whose descendants perform exceptionally well in the toughest competitions. Up for auction is a select group of offspring from the very best pigeons, with the most prominent attractions being 2 offspring of Poco Barcelona... but also offspring of National top 10 winners like Eros and Close One, and the 1st provincial Montauban winner Blue Zeppelin.

One Loft Race Special

A specific aspect of modern pigeon racing is formed by International One Loft Races. For some, it's a fun extra component in the fall, while for others, it's the highlight of the year. Either way, top fanciers worldwide send their best pigeons to events like the Victoria Falls Classic, Pattaya Int. Pigeon Race, Afrika Pro, Derby Arona, Golden Algarve Classic, and so on. Certain pigeons demonstrate specific qualities that excel in this particular form of pigeon racing, often characterized by its selective conditions. On PIPA, a selection of super One Loft Race pigeons from renowned players is up for auction.

Dubai OLR (AE)
