"Phantom's Masterpiece" - AU 07 GFL 1081 BB Hen
What a hen! A direct daughter of "Phantom" and "Fieneke 086"!!! You can't get any better anywhere! 4 direct children were actually
raced and they didn't win, but they were always in the first birds in, never late, and never got lost! This is the type of pigeon it takes
to keep you on top. Send speed birds, but don't count on them being there when the going gets tuff! These will always be around waiting
for the paycheck at the end of the season, and in the average speed races!
Mike Ganus says; The Phantom, a super breeding male bred by Flor Vervoort of Belgium - one of the greatest fanciers of all time. I've been good friends with Flor for over the past 15 years and I can honestly say that his family of Hofkens and Olympiade pigeons were among the best I've ever raced. Flor built his family around a legendary bird called "Olieman" - a pigeon that raced during the same time as the Janssen Brothers famous "019". Results never lie - the Olieman had faster speeds than the "019" and would have beat his 18 wins most of the time if both clubs would have combined their results. Fanciers watched and recorded these great races from between the famous "019" and the Olieman. Many top lofts were made with offspring from the Olieman including Louis Van Hove, Frons Verheyen, and Flor Vervoort - all breeders of Olmpiade birds representing Belgium against the rest of the world. I visited Flor in August 2002 and had the pick of his breeding loft. I selected "The Phantom" for my breeding loft. He is a medium size, strong body. A masterpiece with fantastic rich dark red eyes, bred around Olympiade winners and Ace pigeons.
