Vanloon Super 73


Vanloon Super 73


Sire is inbred to Super 73

Dam is inbred to Super 73

NL-81-8115173"SUPER 73" is one of the best known birds in the world now. This Van Loon cock was something special when in 1984 he won 1st Ace Pigeon Holland Sprint. His flyer, Gijs Peters, knew he could get more out of this special cock. Then, 1 year later in 1985, he won the prestigious award of 1st Overall Ace Pigeon of Holland flying against 50,000 lofts! This was quite a record. Then "SUPER 73" was tested as a breeder and was sire and grandsire to several top 10 Ace Pigeons of Holland! In late 1987 Campbell Strange bought him for a good sum of $20,000. This was a lot of money at the time, but turned out to be nothing compared to what Campbell would receive from this super breeder. Mated to other Van Loon hens he bought from the Planet Brothers, this family of Van Loons took off! His progeny is very popular in many fancier's lofts worldwide! "SUPER 73" died in 1998.
