Lubomir Kubácek & Family

The race from Krajkova is a memorial race in memory of the fanciers who lost their lives in the Katowice disaster that struck the Polish national exhibition in 2006. Unusually heavy snow caused the roof of the exhibition centre to cave in, trapping those inside and killing many of them.

For 2017 Lubomir Kubácek entered seventy-two pigeons for the race from Krajkova competing with a total of 30,179 pigeons from across the Czech Republic. His winning pigeon was Bingo, (15-CZ-0234-2187) bred from an original Koopman pigeon named Gerard. This cock was bred from Limson, a son of Annelies and a full sister to Kleine Dirk. The dam of Gerard is a direct daughter of Mighty Man, again a full brother of the superb Kleine Dirk. Gerard is already the sire of a first national ace hen, Stella, in 2011.

Tha dam of Bingo is an original hen from the super Belgian loft of Jules Lens of Putte. This loft was first champion young birds in the KDBD national races in 2012 with a daughter of their super pigeon Bingo. The results were 1st provincial Argenton 3,088p. 2nd provincial Bourges 8,901p. and 9th national Bourges 23,078p. Jules Len's Bingo is a grandson of his foundation pair 6365607/93 (Engels Leon v Engels J & J) x 6316896/94 (Flor Vervoort). This pair were resonsible for producing many excellent racers including the winner of 1st provincial Bourges against 2,037 pigeons and a first provincial Gueret against 149 pigeons. It was especially their son, De24 (6152524/98) that had a great influence on the future pigeon family. De 24 is the sire of Bingo.

The second pigeon home for Lubomir was Suveren (16-CZ-0234-1633). Suveren was eighth national and the fastest yearling overall. It was bred from the great racer, Gaston 42. The sire of Gaston 42 was an original Gaston Van De Wouwer, being a grandson of Kaasboer when he was paired to a daughter of the foundation pair Koler x Sudorka. This pair bred several super pigeons including the olympiade pigeon Calibos. Many of Lubomir's racing team have this super pair in their pedigree. The dam of Suveren is a full sister to the first national ace hen 2012, a daughter of three times first prize winner and super breeder Billie.
