Unsurprisingly, the Julien-bloodline is wel represented in the latest super results. Last Saturday, on the national race from Limoges I, Youri wins 1st Nat. Zone and 4th Nat. against 15,547 pigeons. The winning hen Camilla Blanca BE19-4020762 is a granddaughter to 'Grandson Julien 607', BE13-4188607. This grandson to Julien won a 18th Nat. Agen and 73th Nat. Limoges. Paired to BE13-4188616 of Marc Valepijn (Ronse), this couple bred 'Father Framboise', BE16-4144647 (father Camilla Blanca). The last few years Camilla Blanca has not been this breeder's sole success, as he is father to many great racers.
Mother to Camilla Blanca, the zonal winner, originates from PIPA Elite Center. She is a daughter to Boxter: Daughter Boxter, BE17-4062751. Boxer is a sister to icon Porsche 911, who is father to the 1st National winner (Crazy Porsche) on this edition of Limoges raced by Ariën-Dekeyser (Tielt-Winge, BE). Daughter Boxer is born from a pairing between Salvador, BE5065189 x Boxter, BE14-2230972.
5th Nat. Limoges is also a Deblanc pigeon
Remarkably, good friend Marc Valepijn who also lives in Ronse wins 5th Nat. Limoges with a pigeon who's parents both originate from Youri's loft! So besides 4th nationaal, 5th nationaal is also won by a 100% Your Deblanc pigeon.
Father to the 5th Nat. Limoges (BE19-4021982) of Marc Valepijn is Cracklou 569, BE17-4002569. He in turn is bred from Crack Julien, BE14-4225167, one of Youri's absolute superbreeders.
Crack Julien is (amongst others) father to: Son Crack Julien (3. Nat. Brive) and the siblings Crack Monti 685 and Crack Monti 703. Crack Monti 685 won 6th Prov. Vierzon against 4,218 pigeons, 12th Nat. Zone Argenton against 7,262 pigeons and 162th Nat. Limoges against 9,756 pigeons. Crack Monti 703 follows promptly with 39th Prov. Vierzon against 4,218 pigeons, 183th Nat. Zone Argenton against 7,262 pigeons and 104th Nat. Limoges against 9,756 pigeons. Mother to Cracklou 569 is Louise, BE15-4077809, a superb breeder that managed to take 3 local wins in 4 weeks time during her racing career.
Mother to the 5th Nat. Limoges is Lucky Girl, BE17-4002542. On father's side, this breeding hen is a granddaughter to Lucky from Marc van den Eeckhout and Marc Valepijn's stock hen. On mother's side, Lucky Girl is daughter to an inbred hen from the Julien-bloodline. Thereby, the Julien lines are bred into the 5th Nat. Limoges on both sides of the family.
10th National Bourges
On the first national race of the season, Bourges, Youri already won 10th Nat. against 25,096 pigeons. A perfect start of the season, that got an even better continuation 2 weeks later with the 4th Nat. Limoges. It nearly goes without saying that the 10th Nat. Bourges is also a descendant from the 'Julien' bloodline. Youri's stock pigeon can be found back two times in the pedigree of this national top-10 flying hen: BE20-4203953.
Father is Eagle Eye Julien (BE16-4144692), a son of Julien with a beautiful palmarès. Winning amongst others a 4th Nat. Limoges 9,661 p., 248th Nat. Limoges 10,554 p., 223th Nat. Limoges 15,789 p. and 230th Nat. Limoges 7,274 p.
