Jan Polder, Middelharnis
For more than 30 years at the top of the international marathon races and also for 30 years based on the same basic pigeons. The most important were: 2 children of “de Marseille” of Jac. Steketee and a granddaughter of “de Witbuik” of Bas and Hugo Batenburg. Both lines based on the world famous strain of Jan Aarden. By Steketee mainly throught Jan Cools and by Batenburg mainly through Piet Lazeroms.
These basic pigeons gave many top racers and even national and international winners. One of these is ‘VICTORIA’, bred from a son of “de Marseille” x granddaughter “Witbuik”.
