Karlo was looking for a new challenge when PIPA suggested to offer his impressive collection for sale. All the old birds, along with the summer youngsters of his best breeders will be put up for auction. On top of that, Karlo will be working closely together with the PEC in 2018; he will be racing PEC pigeons as of next season.
Karlo covered the final stretch towards the top with the help of some Verreckt-Ariën bloodlines in particular, including most notably the 1st Nat. Bourges 2005 Jos and his super class son Bingo. Both Prima Dora and Hattrick are 50% Verreckt-Ariën and 50% Karlo Van Rompaey. Needless to say, these invaluable bloodlines play a fundamental role in this impressive Van Rompaey auction. Among his most valuable pigeons are a few original Verreckt-Ariën birds such as Lange Leon and Futuro and their talented relatives, as well as all his national prize winners.
