This article is about the pigeon loft of Jürgen Jung and his daughter Sarah from Ebertshausen in Germany. They have quite an exceptional pigeon loft that houses several world-famous breeding pigeons, whose descendants perform at an outstanding level. We would like to take a closer look at some of their most valuable breeding pigeons.
De Rauw-Sablon or Lucky 848
De Rauw-Sablon is a household name in pigeon racing. This name stands for top quality, incredible results in races and especially in the breeding loft. This loft is often linked to the name of Lucky 848 BE00-4065848. Lucky 848 originates from the loft of De Rauw-Sablon and is currently one of the key players in the loft of Jürgen and Sarah Jung. Today, the pigeons of De Rauw-Sablon are more popular than ever, because they have been winning prizes in races worldwide. Lucky 848 was quite an expensive pigeon and Jürgen and Sarah Jung were not the only fanciers interested in buying him. In fact, Nikolaas Gyselbrecht really wanted to have this pigeon in his PIPA Elite Center. He asked them if they were interested in buying the pigeon together and that was the start of a quite exceptional joint breeding. Lucky 848 is paired to the breeding hens of the PEC in the first half of the breeding season before breeding youngsters in the loft of Jung in the second half of the season. Both lofts have bred several top class youngsters from Lucky 848 and both fanciers breed pigeons that are intended to be used in the respective breeding lofts.
Meanwhile a few other pigeons of De Rauw-Sablon have joined the pigeon loft of Jürgen and Sarah Jung. They now have about 30 of them, all of which originate from some of the best breeders. One of them is Motega, a full brother of the famous New Freddy, First Ace Pigeon KBDB Longer Middle Distance 2010 and winner of two first prizes. Pros was added to the loft as well, a pigeon of Pros Roosen bred from top class breeder Freddy. Sitala, a pigeon of Pros Roosen from Freddy x Daughter Blauwe Prins also found its way to the loft, as well as Alberta, an original Aelbrecht hen, a daughter of the world famous Bak 17. These are just a few of the pigeons that are very closely related to the line of De Rauw-Sablon.
We take a look at the origins of Lucky 848: his sire is Super Breeder Be91-4560548 of Marcel Aelbrecht. This cock originates from the crossing of the two De Rauw-Sablon pigeons Albert BE90-4002911 and Paola BE90-4002926. The dam of Lucky 848 is Mutter Smallen BE93-4429368, which Marcel Aelbrecht obtained as an egg of De Rauw-Sablon. It is interesting to note that the dam of this hen, the BE91-4261235, is a full sister of the sire of Lucky 848, which shows that this is an impressive inbreeding. Perhaps this is the only way to create exceptional breeding hens? This is a question that will probably never be answered.
This auction includes Alina (08857-10-280), a daughter of Lucky 848 that was paired to Alberta BE06-4368531, a daughter of the world famous Back 17. We also have Josef and Jenna, two very fine pigeons. Feel free to have a look at their pedigrees.
Today Nightrider (NL06-4281702) is housed in the breeding loft of Jung, but how long will he stay there? He was Olympiad pigeon in Dortmund in 2008 and international ace hen marathon and he won a first national from Perigueux against 1,871 pigeons and a 10th national from Bergerac against 31,373 pigeons. He is an excellent pigeon of A. Dijkstra and winner of many top prizes. Nightrider originates from a son of Donkere Kweker (NL98-1873193) of Jelle Jellema and Venus (NL05-0504001) of Jaques Steketee. Nightrider has an impressive pedigree and he is one of the many top class pigeons to be auctioned. He will be sold with Nighta, (08857-13-919), a daughter of Nightrider, making for an impressive offer.
