Green (CN) - 13 pigeons - 5,308 EURO / pigeon
When a National winner is sold there is always a lot of interest, but what about two in one auction. It was Green Xiang who put these two classy cars up for auction. The auction started with the 1st national Barcelona of 2014 called New Remy, but certainly well-known among marathon fanciers. In addition to his historic victory, he also became a gifted breeder. The other National winner that was auctioned is St. Vincent Remy. This checker cock won the 1st National from St. Vincent. It will not be a coincidence that the pigeons are also related.

Ultimately, both pigeons were sold together with a youngster for the amount of 34,000 EURO (New Remy) and 9,600 EURO (St. Vincent Remy).

The buyer of New Remy is Daniel Van Ceulebroeck (Balegem, BE). The Van Ceulebroeck pigeons have written a nice piece of pigeon history. He got to taste the taste of a national victory four times. With the purchase of New Remy, he does not hide his ambition.
