04742 ZA 16 GPU

SUMO

LOT 48. Best middle distance pigeon Union 2018.
Full brother to the GPU hen sold for R175 000. He is one of only four pigeons ever bred this way. A true banker.
In his first year in the stock loft he immediately proved his worth by producing a double winner that also scored 3x TOP 15 UNION.
This cock will produce many more ace pigeons and winners. He is a perfect handler with the pedigree to match.
His children scored in one season as follows: 1,1,2,3,3,3,9,9,11,12,15,15,16,18,21,24,27.

FULL BROTHER TO :
The "GPU hen" story
As a test pair, I mated our number one breeding cock (the SUMO click cock) to his "click" hen's full sister. A very latebred baby hatched from this mating - ZA GPU 15781 '14 .
The moulting season passed and time for training arrived. Roadwork started and ZA GPU 15781 '14 was lost from a training flight. Well maybe the pairing was no good then...
We however received a call from Cedric McDermott from Randburg. The baby has strayed to his loft.
We gave him permission to keep the pigeon. He did not race her in 2015.
She was only raced in 2016. And as they say "the rest is history". She turned out to be a 5X club winner. TRPF winner. Best bird Club, Division, TRPF, Gauteng Combine. Also SANPO Gold medal winner middle distance 2016. Silver medal winner overall best bird SANPO 2016.
The "GPU hen" was later auctioned online for a whopping R175 000!
After this we mated the pair again for two rounds. One round only produced one baby and the other round two babies. One was gifted to a friend. The other two were raced - lot 11 and lot 48 on our auction. So in total only four pigeons EVER bred this way.
4742 (lot 48) turned out to be best middle distance union 2018 and in his first season produced a double winner. 4744 (lot 11) also raced very consistently after having to recover from a very bad wire accident.
Pigeons that gave us so much pleasure! We salute you.
