Eddy & Maarten Leutenez, Kruishoutem hammered on the road to ‘national top’ with success!

The short space of time in which Eddy & Maarten Leutenez have managed to regain their place at the national top after their new start in 2007 in Kruishoutem, deserves admiration. They deliver the proof that with ‘top class’, you are capable of anything!

The star of the Eddy & Maarten Leutenez colony shined once again as before in the pigeon skies in Semmerzake. It is almost unbelievable how, since their re-start in 2007, they have once again nestled themselves between the ‘top lofts’. The big difference with the previous period in Semmerzake is that they currently have fewer pigeons… even with a rather ‘minimal’ occupation… for 2011 consisting of 16 widower cocks (8 two-year olds and 8 yearlings), 7 racing hens (in widowhood) and over 90 youngsters. Simply because there is no more room available. According to Maarten, who does most of the work, he also lacks the available time due to his work (as a nurse) for coaching and training a bigger colony. Luckily if he is away he can always rely on a helping hand from his brother-in-law Kurt, when necessary… because due to an occupational disease he comes into contact with the pigeons as little as possible. Although he follows his birds closely as supporter ‘nr 1’… he, is the man with the magnificent honours list, the treasure of experience… who now closely watches the antics from the side-lines, decides the breeding strategy, coach and guide the racing methods... and keep a ‘close eye’ on everything, and intervene where necessary. Eddy knew better than anybody that to race at the top of the pigeon sport you have to have ‘top pigeons’… that’s why he and Maarten have filled their lofts with real ‘crack pigeons’ or their direct descendants. Only with such examples can you reap success in the pigeon sport… success based on ‘good pigeons’… despite all methods, mixtures and other supplements. Anyone who has tasted top success, 6 x 1° national victories and 4 x 2° places national to his name, provincial and national Ace pigeons… so as Eddy Leutenez, can’t be taught anything at that level !

-The ‘Bolleke’ B09-4108109

 1° Interprov Tours 2.257 p.
 1° Tours             235 p.
 1° Roye              664 p.
 4° Ablis             265 p.
 4° Tours             208 p.
 8° Interprov Tours 2.045 p.
19° Ablis             489 p.
19° Ablis             599 p 

But what is more...they have more than proven their enormous breeding worth in the Leutenez-lofts. I’ve never known anything like it during my entire career… continues Eddy… a hen which has produced nothing but ‘good pigeons’ since the first breed.  Take a look… and Maarten shoves the achievements of her children in 2010 under our nose :

-The ‘Bolleke National’ B10-4007835
3° Best Youngster of Belgium in the National races  2010!

  69° Nat. Gueret        13.885 p. (Club 6° of 310 p.)
 301° Nat Argenton       22.442 p. (Club 11° of 436 p.)
 957° Nat La Souterraine 17.017 p. (Club 19° of 284 p.)
1334° Nat Bourges        30.748 p. (Club 20° of 427 p 

She further won another top with 5° Ablis 341 p., 120° Intprov Blois 1.701 p. etc 

-The ‘Bolleke 2000’ B10-4007833

 39° Intprov Blois  3.683 p.
 81° Intprov Blois  1.701 p.
119° Intprov Tours  1.915 p.
181° Intprov Tours  3.375 p.
200° Nat Argenton  22.442 p. (Club 7° of 436 p.)
219° Nat Bourges   30.748 p. (Club 2° of 427 p 

-The ‘Bolleke Tours’ 2010

1° District Tours       379 p.
5° Intprov Tours 3.375 p. etc 

By these three children the ‘Bolleke’ was always coupled with ‘Mauro’ B08-4070146, self a son of the ‘Blauwe Superkweker 114/01’ (direct Jules Mannaert out ‘Grandson Dream Couple’ x ‘Sister Goudklompje’ De Rauw-Sablon) x ‘Elisabeth 155/03’ (a direct Marcel Aelbrecht via Marc De Cock, out ‘Brother Smallen’ x ‘Daughter Marseille’)… or the world class De Rauw-Sablon in full glory!
Is this a new ‘stock mother’ in the making?  Everything points in that direction! Her full brother left no doubt as to his performance capability, take a look :

-‘Cancellara’ B10-4071241

3°  Reg Blois        325 p.
4°  Intprov Blois  3.683 p.
4°  Tours            259 p.
15° Intprov Tours  2.357 p.
7°  Ablis            300 p.
13° Clermont         471 p. etc… 

It should surprise nobody that this line of the ‘Bolleke’ is worked into 50% of the youngsters 2011. Maybe this will be one of the success lines of the future within our national pigeon sport!

By the new start in Kruishoutem Eddy & Maarten took back a few of their old pigeons from their successful stock, so as a granddaughter ‘Milan’ (bought at the time by Marc De Cock)…named ‘Siska’ B08-4347741. Coupled with ‘Federer’ B08-4347712 (a direct Marc De Cock, and grandson of the ‘Dream Couple’ De Rauw-Sablon, out  ‘Brother Limoges 711/99’ x ‘Kim 180/04’, granddaughter of the ‘Superkweker Freddy 032/94’)…  this ‘Siska’ developed into a breeding hen with content. She is already mother of 


-‘Alejandro’ B09-4077218

46°  Nat Chateauroux II     22.718 p. ’10 (Club 2° of 391 p.)
72°  Nat Chateauroux I      18.725 p. ’10 (Club 8° of 279 p.)
315° Nat Bourges II         14.145 p. ’10 (Club 3° of 129 p.)
151° Nat Zone A Argenton II  8.004 p. ’09 (Club 11° of 420 p 

This ‘Alejandro’ is a full brother of the 
-‘Goudhaantje’ B09-4077273

 2°   Clermont           420 p. ’10
17°  Ablis              587 p. ’10
72°  Nat Argenton    19.816 p. ’10
102° Nat Chateauroux 22.718 p. ’10 

Another couple of promising breeding pigeons, bought from Marc De Cock are the ‘Grote Milan’ B06-4370915 (grandson of ‘Milan’... out ‘Son 1° Nat Perpignan 065/05’ x ‘Daughter Milan 057/05’) x ‘Miss Milan’ B05-4126349 (direct daughter ‘Milan 418/03’, winner 1° Intprov Blois 2.474 p., 3° Prov Argenton 4.898 p. and 6° Nat. 17.129 p… x ‘Daughter Zwarte Perpignan 510/03’, daughter 1° Nat Perpignan 7.537 p. ’03… a Deridder x Florizoone). This couple are the parents of the 

-‘Zwarte Milan’ B09-4077203

57°  Nat Chateauroux I   18.725 p. ’10 (Club 2° of 279 p.)
62°  Nat Chateauroux II  22.718 p. ’10 (Club 5° of 391 p.)
461° Nat Argenton I      19.816 p. ’10 (Club 17° of 316 p.)
623° Nat Bourges I       17.138 p. ’10 (Club 8° of 222 p.) 

It is since 1988 that Eddy Leutenez and Gaby Vandenabeele booked national victory on the same day from Bourges II National… Eddy with the youngsters, Gaby with the old birds. Since then the friendship bands were tied and pigeons moved (then) from Dentergem to Semmerzake and vice versa. After the re-start in Kruishoutem Eddy & Maarten introduced the Vandenabeele pigeons into their stock building again, also by Patrick & Dimitri Houfflijn they obtained top class out their best pigeons from their Vandenabeele lines… one of the successful introductions stems out the line of the ‘Jonge Bliksem B05-3006788 (Son of the legendary ‘Bliksem 062/98’ x ‘Goed Jong 535/04’). A few promising top athletes out this line include :

-The ‘Flamingo’ B07-4145197

Son of ‘Den 335’ B06-4361335 (out aforementioned ‘Jonge Bliksem 788/05’ x ‘Blue Angel 091/04’) x the ‘Jonge Phoebe 109/04’ (Full sister of ‘Milan 418/03’). He won a.o. .:

22°  Chateauroux           525 p. ’09
65°  Prov Blois          1.334 p. ’08
90°  Prov Chateauroux    4.341 p. ’09 (Club 10° of 192 p.)

169° Intprov Argenton    2.246 p. ’08
184° Prov Chateauroux    3.772 p. ’08 (Club 15° of 209 p.)
260° National Brive     16.815 p. ’10 (Club 9° of 268 p.) 

The ‘Flamingo’, one of the toppers in the current April II-auction on PiPa, is self already father of :

1° Ablis 341 p. Etc...

-B09-4077255 :

  7°   Ablis             365 p.

93°  Nat. Zone Limoges          6.810 p.
300° National Limoges          14.211 p. (Club 9° of 340 p 

Out this same line also stems that famous top hen from 2010, namely

 
-The ‘Argentontje B10-4007872

4°   Nat. Ace pigeon Cureghem Centre 2010
3°   Clermont 357 p.

82°  Intprov Tours 1.925 p. 
136° Nat Gueret 13.885 p. (Club 8° of 310 p.) etc 

She is a daughter of the ‘Favoriet’ B07-4371623, half-brother 1° Intprov Bourges ‘99 (originating from P & p.Houfflyn out the ‘Son Blauwe Fideel 584/96’, grandfather 1° Nat Cahors 2010… x ‘Ronkertje 012/97’, granddaughter ‘Ronker’ Gaby Vandenabeele) x ‘Blauwke 165’ B07-4145165, half-sister of ‘Den335’ or ‘father Flamingo’ (so out the ‘Jonge Bliksem 788/05’ x ‘Ellen 2’ 125/06, line ‘Rambo’: 1° Nat Bourges ’88 Gaby Vandenabeele).

And then of course there is that other excellent breeding mother ‘Karin’ B03-4423894… a direct Benny Steveninck from Hamme, and full sister of ‘Father Chipo’… and that is then once again for 50% the old sort of Eddy Leutenez, as the mother of ‘Karin’ (also grandmother of ‘Chipo’) is a full sister of ‘Millo’ or the 1° Nat Ace pigeon Middle Distance KBDB ’97 by Eddy Leutenez (and daughter of the 2° Prov Ace pigeon KBDB Long Distance Youngsters 1990: the 

 ‘Patron 466/90’ x ‘Nikita 749/92’).

Breeding results  Karin

One of her granddaughters performed excellently in 2010 as a youngster:
-The ‘Blauwke Gueret’ B10-4007924
74° Nat Gueret 13.885 p.  (Club 7° of 310 p .)

Future looks good
As you can read, Eddy & Maarten have thought long and hard about their stock building. Always with an eye for top pigeons… in search of ‘better’… it is a characteristic of real toppers in our sport.  Whoever doesn’t have  ‘good’, will never be a winner in the pigeon sport. Eddy Leutenez knows what he is talking about, due to an honours list which is bursting at the seams. At that level son Maarten is just as ambitious, and with father Eddy as his right arm… they are now building together on the road towards ‘national top’… and hope to remain there for a long time. With the above mentioned top class at hand, no-one will doubt that they will be successful in their mission !
