Andreas & Walter Drapa (Königsbach, GE) underline status as Western European super champions … again!

As regular as it seems for Andreas and Walter Drapa, the way these super champs reign in German pigeon sport can only be characterised as unique … In 2015 again they will be purveyor of the Olympiad, sending a possible 5(!) of their cracks to Budapest.

It seems as nothing can stop the hegemony of one of the greatest all time champions in modern pigeon racing, even the brutal burglary of valuable breeders. The Drapa’s were discouraged at first, but not for long. Disappointment was transformed into determination and when an expert such as Andreas rolls up his sleeves even an extra bit, the outcome can very well be predicted. Driven to the bone the Drapa racing team stormed through the year of 2014 and after all the efforts the satisfactory result is a season of successes even such a great champion can be proud of. The best races of 2014:

New super breeder Pokerface

He had been verified as champion performer on many occasions before; the wonder cock Pokerface as 1st German & 2nd Int. Olympiad bird all round Poznan 2011, 1st Europe Cup all round 2010 and 1st Nat. acebird RIRO of Germany 2009 with 9 x 1st prize, he is in racing a worthy successor of his father Champ, base breeder of the Drapa colony. When one of Pokerface’s first sons Hero made his way to the arena and won 9 x 1st prize and a grandchild was crowned as 3. Nat. ace young bird HDI Germany 2013 later - Andreas felt this could be the one, the new super breeder and he paired him up to all his top winning and breeding hens. The 2014 season was the definite breakthrough as new star breeder for Pokerface.

The best Drapa performer of the last 2 years is Sky Fighter (DV01769-10-1492) Crowned as 1. National acebird in HDI champion 2 years in a row and winner of an incredible 10 x 1st prize … He is bound to represent Germany in the Budapest Olympiad as well. ‘Sky Fighter’ is bred from ‘Pokerface’ x  the Olympiad hen ‘Penelope’ (click here for the pedigree of 'Skyfighter') and his performances are amazing:

      1st Nat. old acebird HDI championship 2013
      1st Nat. old acebird HDI championship 2014
      5th Nat. Olympiad bird Germany 2013
      Olympiad candidate 2015
      1st prov. Sens – 8,322 b. (413 km)
      1st prov. Sens – 5,571 b. (413 km)
      1st prov. Sens – 3,595 b. (413 km)
      1st prize Saverne – 1,973 b. (111 km)
      1st prize St. Dizier – 1,854 b. (278 km)
      1st prize Toul – 1,191 b. (202 km)
      1st prize Sarrebourg – 946 b. (117 km)
      1st prize Arcis – 568 b. (338 km)
      1st prize Toul – 495 b. (206 km)
      1st prize Arcis – 418 b. (338 km)

Naturally Andreas and Walter kept the youngsters bred by Sky Fighter at the beginning of the 2014 season and entered them for racing, they will not regret that decision. Two of the very best performing youngsters of the Drapa-team are direct children to Sky Fighter - they are:
- Katy 29/14, 1. Nat. acebird YB HDI championship Germany 2014 and Olympiad candidate 2015. She was crowned as 1st young acebird RV 2014 and won 5 prize cards from 5 races with a/o:

      1st prize – 1,276 b. (171 km)
      2nd prize - 1,098 b. (213 km)
      3rd prize – 1,427 b. (128 km)
      4th prize – 1,076 b. (106 km)
      8th prize - 1,383 b. (171 km)

- The Best 215/14 crowned as 2nd young acebird RV 2014. She won 5 prize cards from 5 races with a/o:

      2nd prize - 1,098 b. (213 km)
      2nd prize – 1,076 b. (106 km)
      4th prize – 1,276 b. (171 km)
      5th prize - 1,383 b. (171 km)
      7th prize – 1,427 b. (128 km)

Pokerface's offspring performed outstandingly for Diego Wouter from The Netherlands too, winning him a/o 1st Epernay 1,316 b. (6. NPO 17,476 b.) 1st Charleville 1,958 b. 1st Marche 2,047 b., etc. However more Pokerface offspring showed great class in 2014 for Andreas Drapa again, like for instance the young hens DV01769-14-34 Super 34 and DV01769-14-416 Lady Gaga, bred from Pokerface x Miss Wells, direct from 2 champs therefore and the result was superb:
- Super 34,

      7th young acebird RV 2014 with
      7th prize – 1,076 b. (106 km)
      9th prize – 1,427 b. (128 km)
      9th prize - 1,098 b. (213 km)
      14th prize – 1,276 b. (171 km)
      76th prize - 1,383 b. (171 km)

- Lady Gaga 416/14

      Olympiad candidate 2015
      1st prize - 1,276 b. (171 km)
      1st prize - 1,098 b. (213 km)
      2st prize - 1,427 b. (128 km)

Another new champ is Budapest Olympiad bird DV01769-13-805 Super Mario, as yearling winner of 4 x 1st prize and 1 x 2nd prize … bred from Tiberius (son Königspaar) x Daughter Marco (grd. Königspaar) and therefore strong inbred to probably one of the best breeding pairs ever in the world; König x Königin of Andreas Drapa, the breeders of Carl and Champ (click here for pedigree Super Mario). Super Mario displayed these  successful genes carefully in his DNA-package and turned them into super class performances:

      Olympiad bird Budapest 2015
      1st prize - 2,845 b. (202 km)
      1st prize - 1,481 b. FG
      1st prize – 449 b. RV
      1st prize – 242 b. YL
      1st prize - 540 b. (254 km) YL
      1st prize - 464 b. (402 km) YL
      1st prize – 354 b. (273 km) YL
      2nd prize - 8,322 b. (402 km)
      2nd prize – 4,596 b. Gruppe
      2nd prize – 2,399 b. FG
      2nd prize – 784 b. RV
      2nd prize - 1,854 b. (273 km)
      2nd prize – 763 b. YRL
      3rd prize - 946 b. (117 km)
      3rd prize - 831 b.(255 km)
      3rd prize - 618 b. (273 km)

Last but not least Olympiad candidate is DV01769-11-59 Shakira, just like Super Mario strong inbred from grandson x daughter to Königspaar. Her father is Messi, one of the best sons to Champ and winner of 1st Int. acebird Europe Cup 2011, 2nd x fastest from Arcis from 6,705 and 6,064 birds with a total of 4 x 1st prize. Mother is Mona Lisa, daughter to ‘König x Königing and full sister to Champ and Carl. (Click here for pedigree Shakira). Shakira is winner of a/o:

      1st Arcis – 1,265 b. (335 km)
      1st Toul – 1,191 b. (202 km)
      1st Sarrebourg – 946 b. (117 km)
      1st Arcis – 839 b. (335 km)
      1st Toul – 495 b. (202 km)
      2nd Saverne – 1,973 b. (111 km)
      2nd St. Dizier – 1,854 b. (275 km)
      2nd Sens – 973 b. (416 km)

‘Skyfighter, Lady Gaga, Katy, Shakira and Super Mario, they are the new pearls on the Drapa crown and will most likely be the stars of the Olympiad in Budapest 2015. Those who know Andreas Drapa, can conclude these exact same names could very well develop as the champion breeders for the future. All descending from the almighty Königspaar family; the absolute best in breeding in international pigeon racing.
