ヘルムート&アルフォンス・クラース - リートベルク(ドイツ):名前はクラース、生まれながらのクラス。

There’s no limit to the performances of the supreme Helmut & Alfons Klaas pigeon family in One Loft Racing worldwide, the breeder of two Million Dollar Race winners celebrated big successes just recently winning the Carnival One Loft Race 2013 and racing the 1st Grand Average acebird (also 3rd final race) in the Million Dollar Race 2013 together with Hans-Paul Esser, the secret behind an era of National and International successes.

“It’s hard to say if I have a real secret for the one loft race successes, other than our family of pigeons,” says Alfons Klaas. “On the regular program the strong descendants of Rudi Köhne pigeons (strain Grondelaers) we brought already in 1988, proved to be superb, especially under heavy circumstances with hot weather, head winds and distances above 400 km … under exactly those circumstances final races in one loft racing are often flown. I also believe the German system explains the success of German fanciers in general; 13 weeks in a row our pigeons must perform, week in week out. That ability to perform at a high level constantly, results in German fanciers grabbing many acebird titles in one loft races. Our program creates strong pigeons, that’s my opinion.”

Why are Helmut and Alfons Klaas oftened mentioned as the nr. 1 worldwide in one loft racing? Naturally their history on these prestigious battles is responsible; in short the highlights:
      1st prize final race Sun City Million Dollar Race 2007 with ‘Konstantin’ – winner 200,000 $
      1st prize World ACE/USA 2007 über 5 Flüge – Gewinnsumme (Goothard/USA) - winner 300,000 $
      1st prize final race Sun City Million Dollar Race 2011 with ‘Victory’ (Kitchenbrand/SA) – winner 200,000 $
      1st prize World ACE/USA/2011 by Sandstrom brothers, father original Klaas lines Konstantin – winner 70,000 $
      1st acebird Grand Average & 3. prize final race Sun City Million Dollar Race 2013 with Purdey (Klaas/Esser)
      1st prize final race & 1. acebird Carnaval City Race 2013 with 47 minutes lead – winner 19,000 $

The 2013 highlight in the Million Dollar Race was realized by  DV05369-12-1121 Purdey, co bred by Klaas with their sports friend Hans-Paul Esser. The mother is owned by Hans-Paul and she is a direct daughter to Asterix Heremans-Ceusters; she 8th ace hen in Fed. (RV Nievenheim) and was a super racer winning a/o 3.-5.-9.-16.-20. etc. in big competition. The father was purchased at the Arie Dijkstra auction on PIPA. “Together with Hans-Paul Esser, we brought in family related to Arie’s super pair Leonardo x Tinkelbel, because we also wanted bloodlines for acebirds in one loft racing. Our own family is especially good in the final races, last year the 2nd and 6th acebird in the Million Dollar Race both descended from Arie Dijkstra lines. We bought the Dijkstra pigeons in 2011, and it proved to be a successful aquisition.” Indeed, Purdey was by far the best performer in 2013’s Million Dollar race, winning a/o

A few days before the great success in the Million Dollar Race in Johannesburg, the old Klaas base already showed great class when his pigeon DV0507-12-696 won the Carnival City Race with a 47 (!) minute lead and also became 1st acebird, in a race where only 23 pigeons returned home on the first day. The unique quality of the old Klaas founding pair; DV0507-88-196 x DV0507-89-463, both original Köhne. Father to the Carnival City winner is a full brother to Mr. Bolt, 1st regional ace cock 2009 from 35,196 birds & 838 fanciers. Mr. Bolt is a grandchild to Pantani, direct son to the founding pair and himself 1st prize winner from 650 km. The impact of Pantani? His full sister bred Million Dollar race 2007 winner Konstantin and his son bred Million Dollar race 2011 winner Victor. In program races, offspring to these basic lines won 11 gold medals for 7 different fanciers. No wonder Helmut and Alfons Klaas cherish the bloodlines of their old founding pair so carefully; inbred products form the base of the breeding loft.

This is a breeding loft where descendants of the founding pair of Kerkhofs-Peeters from Belgium also became very important. A grandchild to this founding pair was 2nd German pigeon in the China one loft race (winning 10,000 euros), another descendant was the winner of  the World Ace Challenge 2007 in the United States. Best exponent of the Kerkhofs-Peeters bloodlines at Alfons Klaas is Blacky, half sister to 2 different car winners. Blacky was the mother to Mr. Bolt, which underlines the unique class of the cross Köhne x Kerkhofs-Peeters. To be complete; mother to the Carnival City winner is original Südhoff-Van Beers and a sister of James (5x 1st prize). 

Anyone who thinks Helmut and Alfons Klaas focus totally on one loft races, is deceived. In fact, father and son Klaas are one of the top performers in their Federation, RV Rietberg and in the combine RegV 250; especially where the toughest races are concerned. “My father has always been successful,” says Alfons, “he has a great knowledge of pigeons.” Just a small selection from recent years:

It almost seems like the world is not enough for the strong pigeon family of Helmut and Alfons Klaas. The performances of their pigeons in German pigeon racing & international one loft races is like it is from another planet. Their quality is high, the results breath-taking; that is why Alfons Klaas can undoubtedly be considered amongst the absolute best in international pigeon racing.
