During the past two Carnival Lofts Summer Series SILVER STAR LOFTS in association with Dieplaagte-Sterkfontein Loft dominated both seasons with small teams of only two birds competing in the 5 Hot Spots and Final against much larger international teams. In 2020 it achieved several top 10s in preliminary races including winning the Final by a nearly two hours lead with phenomenal 1st Ace ‘SILVER FLASH’; in 2021 it was the only team (with two cousins of ‘SILVER FLASH’ competing) that featured within the top 10 in 5 out of the last 6 races of the season with ‘2113’ ending as 5th Ace for 8th Final and 2x Equal 1st. In both seasons these pigeons achieved the highest exit prices on the Carnival Summer auctions. Both seasons were marked by extreme weather conditions with heat, rain and head winds.
Over the past ten years only top international One Loft genetics has been acquired by both high ranking lofts and in a consolidation process excess pigeons that were originally bred for stock will during the next few months by both lofts be offered for sale on Top Pigeon in small batches as they become available.
This is the second such auction presented which presents a spread of SILVER STAR genetics and two hand-picked Dieplaagte-Sterfontein babies. The birds on offer will mostly be younger birds nearing completion of their molt.
As a special gesture SILVER STAR LOFTS will offer a young full brother (but not yet absolutely confirmed as a cock) of phenomenal ‘SILVER FLASH’. The breeder is confident that it will have a significant impact in any loft it goes to. In addition, very few birds ever become available that can match the genetics revealed in the ‘FLASH Line’ pedigrees which include the incredible ‘Leonardo x Tinkelbel’ (Dijkstra, NL) super pair that has arguably been the highest impact pair in OLR history – also ‘Der Ringlozer12’ (Koopman-Prange, DV) unquestionably the best breeder in German history and a concentration of supreme international champions in all competition forms over the past two decades.
