Alwin Petrie (Brummen, NL) - Regional champion youngsters region 2 Province 8 (820 members)

Today we pay a visit to the Brummens super talent Alwin Petrie. The 39 year old Alwin, member of P.V. de Valk in Brummen, has raced the stars from the heaven with his pigeons for 25 years.

Only in the first year of his active career he wasn´t by the champions, for the rest he was always included at the top. Just the fact that he has raced for years at the top and achieves fabulous results, proves that he owns a stock that is unprecedented. It is obviously clear that he is also a pure professional in the pigeon sport. The secret of his success is in the fact that there is a strict regime in his lofts. Hereby the word selection is very important. Pigeons that are regularly noticeable because of less condition and pigeons that regularly fail to win a prize are got rid of without any mercy. Their heritage is not taken into consideration.

The game with the youngsters
The coupling of 20 breeding couples takes place around the beginning of January, if it is not too cold. Because, Alwin, says, that is not nice for the boss or for the pigeons. They are darkened and lightened on time. In 2008 they were raced with the natural method. The intention was to later race them in widowhood, but they came home so well that he didn´t dare take the risk. The youngsters are let out every morning at 6am, and they train in such a way that it is a pleasure to watch them fly in the sky above the vast floodplains of the Ijssel and they are regularly away for hours. Two weeks before the start of the races the pigeons were taken away early in the morning, first only a short distance and later to Heteren, this happened every day regardless of the weather. Once the prize races began, they were trained once a week. If a pigeon needs medical attendance, or if Alwin wants to know about the health of a certain couple, then a visit is paid to Dr. Nanne Wolff and his advice is always followed. When the pigeons return home  they are given enough to every day. Alwin has never given them more to eat towards the end of the week. When the pigeons eat well on the Sunday evening, the day after the race, then there is nothing wrong. Good pigeons together with a good fancier who pays consideration to care and attention, the following fantastic results were achieved:

With the Petrie-Janssens, Alwin owns a super stock of racing pigeons.

The stock Petrie-Janssen especially gained stature when  Alwin  bought a round of youngsters from Cees Suykerbuyk from Eefde in 1986 and 1989. It gave Alwin a real breakthrough, and has now, along with others, added extra magnificent properties to these great pigeons. The pigeons responsible included a Janssen cock that Alwin bought via the gebroeders Janssen (Brummen) in the mid eighties.

The pigeons then that form the basis of the pedigree Petrie-Janssen, transport the blood through the veins of noble pigeons such as 'Fameuze 05' and 'Glamourboy'. 'Fameuze 05' was a phenomenal cock, who in 1981 was crowned as best cock of the Netherlands WHZB. But the way in which his descendants, up to the 7th generation conquered the pigeon sport worldwide was just remarkable. He was mainly seen as the best breeding cock ever. 'Glamourboy' was also a real top cock with 7 x 1st, including 1st Nat. NPO Etampes 13.142 pigeons. His descendants have became famous world wide, like his grandchildren 'Loverboy' (world champion youngsters '96) and 'Mr. Loverman' (best cock of the Netherlands WHZB 2000). Combined with the 'Fameuze 05' lines, Alwin turned out to have pure gold in his hands.

Via Cees Suykerbuyk pigeons including an ´84 hen, direct daughter of 'James Bond' (best middle distance pigeon of the Netherlands WHZB 1984), that had a big impact on the stock Petrie-Janssen. Via Eijerkamp this brilliant colony was supplemented with a few memorable pigeons, but particularly the 'Parel 05' was a great influence, she is a daughter of Eijerkamps top couple 'Fameuze 05' x 'Bange 780 duivin'. Sisters of 'Parel 05' were amongst other things, parents of the Olympiad pigeons 'Flits' and 'Youngsters General' and grandparents of many other toppers, so as 'Lady Jumbo' (best hen of the Netherlands WHZB 2000 ).

In the Petrie loft 'Parel 05' is amongst other things, mother of the stockholders 'Donkere 15' and 'De Blauwe 20'. These two cocks have an enormous impact on the stock Petrie-Janssen. 'Donkere 15' was self a top cock, he was amongst other things best cock in the province, but the way in which his descendants perform is probably more impressive. 'Blauwe 20' gained fame as the father of 'Porsche Bond', a super cock that was also the best cock of the province and whose descendants have given not only Alwin, but also the Eijerkamp family (where he moved to) magnificent descendants.  All three grandchildren of this magnificent 1st National (NPO); ‘Mister Bond’ (1st NPO Bourges 2001 – 10.221 p.), ‘Catharina Amalia’ (1st Nat. Troyes 2003 – 10.281 p.) and ‘Miss Antonia’ (1st NPO Bourges 2004 – 10.040 p.) NL91-5018720 'Blauwe 20'. A sister of ‘Porsche Bond’ bred the cock that was crowned in 2003 2nd Nat. cock of the Netherlands WHZB.

A wonder couple – based on this golden basis – that was jointly responsible for the recent successes by Alwin Petrie is NL98-5834551 ‘Massarati’ x NL96-5617656
‘Blue Dahlia’. ‘Massaratti’ was 5th Ace pigeon, won 5 top 10 prizes in big races and comes directly out the line of ‘James Bond’, ‘Fameuze 05’ and ‘Glamourboy’.
‘Blue Dahlia’ comes out the line of ‘Rocky’ (1st Nat. Ace pigeon sprint WHZB 1985) and out a granddaughter of ‘Blauwe 20’.

Recently Alwin has started obtaining fantastic crossing material to set against his golden oud basis. He is very successful with the pigeons from sport friend Henk Bussing from Zetten, National top racer in the sprint and middle distance. And since 2007 he has also obtained pigeons from van Maurits Hassendonck, the superman from Belgium whose pigeons also stand at the basis of the Heremans-Ceusters loft.

The unique collection of current breeders:
After 6 races in 2007, with 4x the 1st prize in region 2 to his name, Alwin Petrie didn´t race anymore that season. His wife Hester was heavily pregnant and Alwin put his family first, before the pigeons. The best racers moved to the breeding loft and in 2008 Alwin decided to only race with the youngsters. Earlier in this report you could read what a success it was. The breeding loft of 15 couples with pure top racing couples,( of these, no less than 17 pigeons had won a 1st prize in a big race) from the golden origin form the basis for that success. Here below we will introduce you to a few of the new standard/bearers in the breeding loft of Alwin.
