Ben Tan Lee gave them to me right after the race, together with a Emiel Deweerdt bird were my well known "Garuda" (Rpap-86-1815) came from.
One of the Tres Hermanas, an Ace Bird winner,paired with "Garuda" line, bred my "Surigao" YB overall champ south, YB tacloban champ and 5th Surigao 1993 RPAP.
She did well by winning in the superset as YB '97, then 2nd San Francisco, Leyte '98 (only 3 birds clocked YB/OB) and the third year, champion at San francisco, Leyte '99 (I think only 5 birds clocked YB/OB).
The only bird in the country that did it twice at that race point."Double Frisco" PHA-96-61504.
When she won Superset in 1997, my friends told me to keep her, when she placed 2nd San Francisco 1998, they said I must retire her.
On her third year in the south, they said I am crazy to risk her.ended up the champion in San francisco, Leyte '99.
I just proved to my self that a healthy bird with a good bloodline can do it.
I remember during a Combine Race Committee meeting (RPAP, PHA & PRPF)where I am one of the representatives, one of the prominent reps said' " a bird that clocks at San Francisco is only "tsamba" (luck/fluke) and the Combine Race should only be in Calbayog".
He didn't know that by then I already had 3 birds winning at that point...
Ang Tres Hermanas ay three full sisters all of which won multiple races and overall placers in different clubs PHA, PSP and RPAP (North and South races).
I bred them directly down from my foundation birds from Ben Tan Lee.
The dam is a stockbird,pure Andre Dereere and the sire pure Jos.
Van den Broucke line, who placed 2nd in Calbayog and 2nd overall south RPAP 1985.
