Mathues Christophe, Kersbeek – Miskom says goodbye to the short distance races
19 Dec 2020
When we can auction a small colony we always notices again that you find really good pigeons that have raced themselves amazingly and are also able to give on their good genes. Racing, breeding, a strong selection and you get a very strong family of pigeons where you can built on. This was the case for the young fancier Christophe Mathues from Kersbeek – Miskom.
By setting top results the past few years no one left it unnoticed and Benny Steveninck came with a proposition. Pigeons from Hamme moved to Christophe and they had to be raced on the national races. This was a group in 2019 that had as goal to shine in 2020. They did this with a lot of bravoure which made it hard to combine everything, especially as pigeon sport is becoming more and more specialized, they took the decision together to sell all the pigeons from Christophe and to start to focus on the Steveninck pigeons in the future.
That’s why there is an unique auction online currently of only 25 strong selected pigeons that are one by one beauties. Proven pigeons where off most of them are related to each other.
That’s why we bundled the 2 breeding lines from “Super Vale” – “Grizzle Ace” and “Super Vaaltje” in this pedigree.
You can admire all pigeons available in the auction underneath.

Won both as youngster as year bird 3 weeks after each other 1st prizes and especially as a youngster this was in different clubs. A young classful pigeon that proved himself entirely the year afterwards what he had in his wings. Such pigeons of that age are a blessing for every fancier to bring onto his breeding loft.
His breeding value showed also very quickly.
A young daughter out of him “BE 20-2044735” Daughter Super Vale won top out of Soissons and is to be found under Lot N°6 in this auction. A beautiful hen crossed in with a sister to “Grizzle Ace” where you can read more about it further on in this article.
