Willy Steenaerts

Willy Steenaerts is absolutely one of the superstars of Belgium Pigeonsport!
But he is a simple and relaxed man who thinks mostly about his pigeons – and not so much about publicity, social medias and promotion.
Therefore there will be readers who dont know the name Willy Steenaerts – so lets try to write a little bit about his fantastic performances!

Willy Steenaerts has fantastic results on the sprint-races and has been in the national top-10 with acepigeons several times. How ever his pigeons are also performing on the middledistances and longdistances – and as you can see from the results, he has topresults on sprint, middledistance and longdistance!

Results the last decade:
We visited Willy Steenaerts for the first time 2 years ago and we were amazed about the fantastic results!

The pigeons:
The base of pigeons are built from mainly 2 pigeons:

DE JONGE IJZEREN from L-B-J Geerinckx – father of 4 acepigeons and 16 different 1. prize winners. Also grandfather of 1. Prov. , which already is the father of 4 AS pigeons and 16 different 1st prize winners. He is also grandfather of the DE BLAUWE BOURGES that was 9. National Bourges against 14.449 yearlings in 2015.

KANNIBAAL 51 (B07-5100851) from Paul Huls – son of a grandson and a granddaughter of the famous KANNIBAAL, Dirk van Dijck.
He is father of:
084/11 – the mother of 8. and 9. National Acepigeon KBDB Youngsters Sprint 2014 – POU POU and DEN HAVIK.
195/10 TEENTJE KANNIBAAL – 3. Prov. Acepigeon KBDB Old Birds Sprint KBDB 2012 and mother of the superpigeon MISTER KASSEL: 1. Chimay 3.686 pigeons, 1. Chimay 3.400 pigeons, 1. Mettet 1.839 pigeons.
196/10 – 4. Prov. Acepigeon KBDB Yearlings Sprint 2011

He is also grandfather of:
1. National Châteauroux 1,987 p. 2015 by Ivan Stockmans
2. Orléans 2.636 pigeons
10. National Châteauroux of 10.933 pigeons in 2015

These 2 families bred together are the keys to this succesful base at Willy Steenaerts.
The recent years Willy Steenaerts has also purchased pigeons from other topnames to strenghen the family – like Leo Heremans, Peter Kocks, Marina Vandevelde and Dirk Van Den Bulck.

One of the most fantastic pigeons coming from the new families on the loft is the super pigeon DE 555.
He is son of 13-5005034 – a 100% Leo Heremans pigeon from OLYMPIADE 003 lines – and 12-6322920 from Marina Van De Velde – also Heremans origins and GALANTOS from Koopman.
