Discover the two invaluable stock bloodlines of Guy Van Der Auwera

Guy Van Der Auwera has been one of the best performing pigeon fanciers of 2017, having added three (inter)provincial first prizes to his palmares. These top results, and the achievements of the entire racing team, can be mainly attributed to two top class bloodlines in Wuustwezel in particular: the legacy of top breeder Kaasboer, and the bloodline of Charlie's Angels.

Kaasboer dynasty

A lot has been said about the renowned Kaasboer, the breeding cock of Jozef Goovaerts whose descendants have enabled Gaston van de Wouwer to become a top level player. In 2017 his descendants claimed a 1st and 2nd Interprovincial Vierzon in Wuustwezel, which adds to an already impressive list of references for Kaasboer. Click here to learn more about the Kaasboer legacy in Guy's pigeon loft.

Charlie's Angels (Rudi Desaer x Rik Cools)

The second bloodline that has undeniably left its mark on this pigeon family is Charlie's Angels. This line comprises three hens, each named after a character in the movie which the bloodline is named after. They each stem from the same breeding pair, and all three have a proven record as well. Their parents are Young Antonio (Rudi Desaer) x Beauty Cools (Rik Cools), two descendants from the De Kleinen bloodline, the former stock breeder of Gaby Vandenabeele. Young Antonio is a full brother of New Jens Junior (6th Nat. Ace Pigeon KBDB 2016) and a son of Antonio (1st Nat. Souillac), which is in turn a full brother of New Tours (1st Nat. Cahors) and a half brother of Close (4th Nat. Tulle). Beauty Cools is a grandchild of Rik Cools's Schone Bliksem from her father's side. The dam is Koosje (BE10-3020304), 3rd Prov. Ace Pigeon thanks to a 1st Prov. Châteauroux and a 4th Nat. Argenton. Click here for a full overview of the Charlie's Angels pigeon breed.
