The Supercrack family
When I was told that Mr. Aart Griekspoor on top of his fame was considering giving up pigeon sport in order to spent more time on his family, I bought his three foundation pairs that had brought him in the headlines of the international pigeon magazines. His best pair was "De Donkere Supercrack" x "Het Ganske".
"De Donkere Supercrack" is a son of the famous "Reims" bred and raced by Aart Griekspoor, whose children brought the wellknown De Wit Brothers of Kouderk a/d IJssel fame all over the world.
"De Reims" won:
"Jessica" is the daughter of "De 111 or Triple One", daughter of "De Donkere Supercrack" and "Het Ganske".
In his pedigree we notice the names of wellknown Janssen basis pigeons such as: "De Bange", "De Stier" and "De Jonge Merckx". His mother is an inbred hen on the superracer "De Schoorsteenveger" of Daan van der Schalk of Rotterdam who was in 1965 1th Semi-National Ace pigeon in the NABvP with 30.000 competitors. "De Donkere Supercrack" was an excellent racer. As a yearling he won 15 out of 15 and was 1th Provincial Ace pigeon.
His son "De Jonge Supercrack" won:
One year later his brother "De Goede 14" won the same title with 14 out of 15 races! From Soissons he won the 1st prize against 4417 birds. The 2nd National Orleans '88 from Mr. Anders-Straathof is a grandchild of "De Donkere Supercrack". His brother is the best breeder at the lofts of De Wit Brothers in Kouderkerk aan de Rijn.
The hen of the famous breedingpair is "Het Ganske". Her father is "De Stuntman 2000". This cock wins in 1979 a car and 1st prizes from Noyon untill Limoges. He won 18 times all the big money there was to win with the following prizes: 3x1st, 5x2nd, 4x3rd, 2x4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th etc!! "Het Tombeurke" a full brother of "Het Ganske" wins in 1981 a car too!! Mother from "Het Ganske" is "De Argenton duivin" out of "De Oude Dromer" x "Het Bontje Devos". Once mated against "De Donkere Supercrack", "Het Ganske" laid golden eggs!!

I also bought his famous breeding hen "Het Juweeltje" daughter of "De Imbrechts" direct from the famous Espoir-line from Germain Imbrechts of Bornival. Het mother is "De Mooie Blauwe" from De Smet Brothers of Semmerzake. "Het Juweeltje" wins the 1st prize from Dourdan with 4 minutes ahead plus 44th National La Souterraine against 6923 birds.
