You don’t need hundreds of pigeons, you just need one good one. Although this pigeon sport wisdom is perhaps a bit exaggerated as far as one’s racing team is concerned, for a breeding loft it might well be true. Pigeon sport knows plenty of examples. What would Dirk Van Dyck have been without “Kannibaal”? Jan Hooymans without “Harry”? Can’t we roll back Gaby Vandenabeele’s formidable career to “De Kleinen”? Indeed, a significant number of legendary fanciers owe a lot of their success to that one basic bird that spawned entire generations of super breeders that kept their performances going for decades.
At the loft of Belgium’s speed wonder Dirk Van den Bulck this key role is perhaps reserved for “Goede Rode”. Of course, such significant birds rarely come without outstanding credentials. “Goede Rode” is no exception. First, the paperwork: his father was a good performing young bird with some Jos Cools of Grobbendonk blood in him that unfortunately got lost on the first Melun race as a yearling (this only shows even the greatest of champions need a little luck sometimes!). His mother was a direct Leo Heremans through Dirk’s nephew Marc Van den Bulck, a daughter of “Nieuwe Rossi” x “Eenoogske”, presented at the 2013 final auction as “the new dream pair”. “Nieuwe Rossi”, two times 1st Noyon winner, is a direct son of the legendary Heremans-Ceusters couple “Rossi” x “Spinneke” whose sisters were for instance the grandmother of the famous “Bolt” and mother of top performer and 4th National KBDB Acepigeon Sprint “Gilbert”. “Eenoogske” is a sister of “Donker Aske”, 3rd National Acepigeon Middle Distance Ave Regina and a nestsister of the “Grandfather 1st National Bourges”. “Eenoogske” is a super breeding hen that became the mother of among others two Olympic Acepigeons in Nitra 2013 and a number of first prizewinners on Quiévrain and Hasselt. Her full brothers were superbreeders as well, yielding first prize winners, Olympiad birds and Acepigeons. In other words, such an impressive pedigree alone would have convinced any fancier that “Goede Rode” had some serious breeding potential. Of course, paperwork is one thing, racing results are another. “Goede Rode” however didn’t lack in that department either. Two first prizes as a young bird – 1st Noyon against 1637 pigeons and 1st Noyon against 822 pigeons – together with his outstanding pedigree and the sad loss of his father motivated Dirk Van den Bulck to move him to the breeding loft immediately. It was perhaps the most important decision of his career.
The second most important decision was without a doubt mating “Goede Rode” to his top hen “Olympic Rosita”, 1st Olympiadbird Cat. F in Nitra 2013, 1st Provincial Acepigeon KBDB, 4th National Acepigeon KBDB Sprint, daughter of an original Stefaan Lambrechts mated to a daughter of a brother of “Goede Rode”. This slight inbreeding towards “Goede Rode” himself yielded the first of three separate dynasties of super racers and breeders: the “Kittel” dynasty. In this line we find of course “Kittel” himself, 1st National Acepigeon KBDB Sprint 2013 with the lowest coefficient ever recorded. Among his formidable results we find a 1st against 2089 pigeons, a 1st against 1792 pigeons, a 2nd against 2023 pigeons, a 3rd against 2443 pigeons, etc. Once again, racing is one thing, breeding is another and just like his illustrious father and mother “Kittel” is a superbreeder whose direct descendants scored at least 20 first prizes. Also part of this dynasty is “Greipel”, full brother of “Kittel” and himself 6th National Acepigeon KBDB Sprint 2013, co-winner of the 1st National KBDB Sprint Championship and possessing a records list which includes a 2nd against 1559 pigeons, a 5th against 1371 pigeons, a 5th against 1603 pigeons, etc. Another example of this dynasty is “New Kittel”, 1st Quiévrain against 1371 pigeons, 3rd Quiévrain against 1993 pigeons, 8th Quiévrain against 1571 pigeons, etc.
However it doesn’t end there. Also with other hens “Goede Rode” proved his unique breeding capacity. Mated to “Golden Leo 998” he sired “Sagan” which became 1st National Acepigeon KBDB Sprint Old Birds 2013 in the capable hands of Patrick Boeckx and which founded a dynasty of his own. Members of this dynasty are for example “Saganne I”, 1st against 2061 pigeons and 2nd against 2121 pigeons, and “Saganne II”, 1st against 2121 pigeons and 2nd against 1863 pigeons. Mated to “Golden Leo 999” “Goede Rode” was the founder of yet a third dynasty; that of the “Vale As”. This dynasty amounted to no less than 16 first prizewinners and is also represented in the 2nd National Acepigeon KBDB Short Middle Distance 2013.
If after all of this there are fanciers which still doubt the unmistakable genetic qualities of this bloodline, then there is more proof in the form of the brother of “Goede Rode”. “Broer Goede Rode” mated to “Golden Leo 40000” are not only the grandparents of “Olympic Rosita”, as we mentioned earlier, but their blood also runs through no less than 5 National KBDB Acepigeons on sprint and short middle distance in 2012 and 2013 and 17 first prizewinners against on average 1250 pigeons. In other words, anyone even remotely interested in racing sprint and short middle distance or, perhaps even more important, in crossing some serious speed into his bloodline, cannot afford to look past the Dirk Van den Bulck birds.
