Saturday, May 5th was a day Klaas Hoekstra would not soon forget. He won 1st, 2nd and 12th in section 11, from Sittard against 21,629 pigeons and these were also the 2 fastest pigeons in the Netherlands. On May 26th Klaas again was the fastest in Section 11 from Weert against 11,795 pigeons and for the second time this season, had the pigeon with the highest speed of all of the Netherlands, with the same pigeon!!
This topper NL17-4288657 at this time has already won 3 pure first prizes, and at the provincial level this blue, white light cock has flown:
- 1st Sittard against 21,629 pigeons
- 1st Weert against 11,795 pigeons
- 4th Niergnies against 11,597 pigeons
Its father "Plato" descends from his old Janssen x van Loon lines and is a son of the 2nd National Blois against 5,805 pigeons. This cock is a cross of Verbart x van Loon (via Comb. Den Haan) x a granddaughter of the "Golden Couple" Leo v.d. Werft from Berghem. The mother of "Plato" is a granddaughter of the "Donkere 53," x "Brooke," NL96-1735824, or again the "Golden Couple," of Leo v.d. Werft. Hans & Evert-Jan Eijkerkamp purchased many pigeons from the late Leo v.d. Werft such as "Don Leo" and "Fabio".
The mother "Gloria", was bred out of a Heremans-Ceusters cock, from the Gebr. De Ruijter from Baarn. This cock is bred from "Lady Rossi", daughter of "Nieuwe Rossi", x "Eenoogske". The hen "Lady Rossi" now is also the mother of "Turbo Rossi" winner of 5 pure first prizes for sport friend Baku from Leeuwarden before being transferred to the breeding lofts of Hans & Evert-Jan Eijerkamp. The mother of "Gloria" is a daughter of the tremendous breeding couple, "Barend J.", NL11-1344701 x "Aniek", NL11-1344703. In August of 2011, Maarten Hakvoort obtained several pairs of eggs from Brummen, and the 701 and 703 were subsequently put together by Maarten, to make up a breeding pair. They proved to be a super breeding pair for our sports friend, Maarten Hakvoort. In 2016 the couple was moved back to Hans & Evert-Jan Eijerkamp.
