I will like to inform you that after 9 years of winning all over the USA, China and Taiwan an icon of the USA and probably one of the best ever in American racing pigeons history Mr. Sure Bet is going to Taiwan to a very special person who has done super with this family of birds, Mr. Simon Lin and I am sure that he will keep his name for years to come. This is a fantastic family of birds that did very well for me and others for years in the USA and the biggest winners in one loft race in America.
This decision was made not by choice if not by health issues, I love my birds and I always will love birds until the day I die but unfortunately I had to part from the sport. I want to take this time to thanks everyone of my friends for the good times that we all had flying this fantastic family of birds.
I wish everyone the best of luck and happiness, god bless you all.
Your friend in the sport.
Never in the history of the racing pigeon
sport in the United States has one loft, one family of birds,
dominated the race sheets like Los
Mambises Loft of Nevada. Starting with discovering the #1
foundation cock of the country, “Sure Bet”, this
loft became legendary in only a couple of years. Rising to
the #1 position in race after race after race, ~ Read

The picture attached is the bird of son of Sure Bet 852.
In a total of 30,000 birds race, and there's only 1/3 of the birds which was around 10,000
birds could enter into the first round.
This bird had become one of the 27 birds that stood in the end of the race. Yet, the result, of course, is this bird won us the USD 70,000 prize in the game.
IRISH SYNDICATE completes the dream at the Canadian International One Loft race with Irish Syndicate 859 "Sure Dreaming" 16 minutes ahead of the pack on the tough 350 miles race into strong headwinds! There were two birds on the drop. Irish Syndicate was also 5th place.

I just wanted to thank you once again Victor. Sure Bet all the way! 747 did better than I ever expected in the Africa 2012 race. This bird came in ahead of some breeders that sent 30+ birds in. I was very happy to see I placed 15th USA bird with just the 3 birds that I sent to the race.
Thank you again Vic – Sure Bet is #1!

Hi Victor this is Jorge Torres, I just wanted to said thank you for the phenomenal birds that we got from you. We breed a pair of birds out of then and we won the Stockton 300 miles by 3:36, your birds blew our minds away. Dave has been in pigeons for 40 years and he said he's never seen such a speed and quality of bird, David told me Sure Bet forever.
My respects, yours in the sport.

When they are good they are good only results count.
Funny to see guys chase what is new and hyped instead of what is good and proven.
May you and your family have a very Happy Holiday Season.
Laughing all the way to the bank.....winning the Mercedes again!!
Khue Dinh Loft bought a late hatch from me and sent to the AIC race - AU 11 Irish Syndicate 552 won
the 300m Car Race - Sure Bet again down from the Sure Gold hen !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We bred 6 babies off the SUREBET-791 on my best breeding cock in 2011. She did not disappoint for the first year.
In my combine, (Missouri Illinois Combine) the best flyer was a small blue bar cock, PROPIGEON.COM-816.
0816 AU 11 PROP BLBR C
Then at the Mercedes Classic race, PROPIGEON.COM-856 blue check hen, was 32nd average speed bird out of over 600 pigeons entered. I think she will breed even better this year. I hope all is well.
I forgot to mention that PROPIGEON.COM 856 was Equal 1st on the first 200 mile Mercedes race.
Also, PROPIGEON.com 816's 4th place combine win was equal to 1st as well.
So really for her first year, SUREBET-791 bred pretty well. I'm going to put her on 2-3 cocks this year and send them to a few one lofts.
I bought a son of "Inbred Olympiade" x "Money Maker" that I was thinking about putting on her.
ProPigeon Racing Loft
Vic, thought I'd let you know how good 09 Surebet 806 bbh has done for me, mated to 2 different cocks.
Au 10 SAF 4141 bbsplh 2nd place San Antonio Futurity race.
Au 10 Lonestar 190 bbh equal 1st, 1st to trap. Texas Center winter meeting race. Not to mention siblings that did very well in the club races. She is a fenominal hen. The quote "Quality breeds Quality" is very true.
John & Mike Partridge
I like the name that you give to your bird Sure Dream for those of you the don’t know the first bird for Mike and John Partridge was a cross of Sure Bet and Dream Boy birds and they call her Sure Dream super job and by the way this is the same cross the Kevin Mcgrew won the best bird in the Vegas Classic this year is that super!!!
Great Video of you and the pigeons. Good to the results I am becoming a beliver in the SURE BETS.
Thanks again maybe see you next year?
Anthony & Rivera
These are the results from the GHC 300 miles race in Florida, we won 1st, 2nd, 14th and 15th, for total winning of $20,650, proving one more time we have the best futurity winners in America.
Vladimir & Jose
Vic.... My Friend... Just when I thought you couldn’t out do what you had on the auction a couple weeks ago, you go ahead and list a collection of the nicest birds I have seen in a long time for the Triple Crown. They just don’t get better than you my friend. It’s a great thing you are doing there and I want you to know how much I look up to you not only as a friend but also a fellow flyer. I am going to do what I can to get some of the Leen Boers blood off the auction, but funds are a little tight right now getting ready for Christmas. I wanted to let you know that my little guy McCabe took 6th in the AU youth race this year with a bird off a hen (6965) that Richard bred for me out of your inbred Sure Bet bird he has. She also bred me an Eq 1st in the 2008 Spring Break 300! Gotta love those Sure Bet birds!! Anyway I wanted to let you know how much I thought of that group of birds. Great job buddy... Zach
Once again thanks for giving me a call about the birds. It was a honor and a pleasure to here from you. People like yourself make pigeon racing still a fun and fulfilling sport. I have attached pedigrees of the birds that won this past week in Vegas with Ed so that way you can see. AU-10-AA-20011 is a full sibling to the 2008 1st place 150 Vegas Classic race and 20th on the final race and the 2009 17th place average speed and equal 1st 200 miles CBS Mercede race and the 2009 Vegas Classic and Viva Vegas money winners.
Also I may not have the best birds or the most expensive birds but if you ever want me to raise you anything I will be happy and it would be an honor.
Raymond and Sean Bohns
Just wanted to let you know we won 1st Place 300 Texas Showdown yesterday with HIP-81. There were 3 birds on the drop ours clocking 1st. The 3 birds were 18 min ahead of the next drop. HIP-81's Sire is GFL 460 grandson of Sure Bet. The Dam is GFL 940 who is a daughter of Money Maker when mated back to a son of Sure Bet. So an inbred half sister of Sure Bet. Just wanted to let you know!! They just keep winning!!

Attached are the lists of the 100 birds that made it home today from the 265 that were shipped. We have 3 home from the 4 that we sent.
AU 10 NFL 951 BB was the winner of the Tobacco Valley One Loft Race in Conn. by 21 minutes in front.
AU 10 NFL 952 BB is the winner of the Texas Twister One Loft Race today by over 7 minutes in front.
This nest pair was bred from a Cock from me paired to a grand-daughter of SURE BET and MARIA.
How often do you find a nest pair that win like this in two different conditions and geographic locations?
Quality breeds quality!
Dec 3, 2010 - The Texas Showdown 400m was today. As of this moment there are 41 birds home from 121 entered. We were 10th and 19th with 2 of our 3 birds.

I had him paired to an inbred Sure Bet hen.The 19th place bird is a Houben.

Congratulations on your Sure Bet family won 1st position at the club of Simon Lin in Northern Taiwan 2010. Many fnaciers have interest at your Sure Bet flying in Southern Taiwan where there are more than ten thousand pigeons in competetion. In other words,there are much more pool money if you can win the race.
Chu Hsin An
First id like to tell you thank you for those two birds they turned out unbelievable!! Next year my club is hosting the IF convention. Id love to handle birds for you if you would like. I hope all is well by you.
I flew our first race last Sat. which was the first 150 miles. I skipped the 2 - 100 miles. Attached is the 1st page of the results which is 7 pages long. We were 5th Club missing 1st by 2min 39sec. Check the distance, we are on the long end and always get the East back up wind from the ocean which is 1 1/2 miles from here.
1841 is Sure Bet all the way. Sire is "Bet The Hammer" the son of "Hammer". The Dam is "Blue Maria" AU 08 HAV 37 the dtr of SURE BET x MARIA. 1841 was 28th Combine against 2882 birds and 199 lofts. In the 150 miles training race the following day I had 3 birds on the drop placing 31st-32nd-33rd against 540 birds. 31st was a dtr of "MUGIO II" x "Litlle Maria" AU 08 HAV 38 dtr of SURE BET x MARIA. 32ND was a Houben and 33rd was a dtr of "SURE SUCCESS" #24 Paired to an inbred 3 times SURE BET cock.

Congratulations on your Calif. results. When you put Champagne up against Beer then Champagne will win every time.
Cream comes to the top.Super video, I really enjoyed it and your connection with your birds is very evident.Lets have another great year in 2011 with the VV family!!!
I appreciate you sent such amazing birds to me and I especially like 03, 05, 06 and 07 a lot. So I am wondering if you can consider to sell a pair of those birds to me.
In addtion, there is an upcoming race on June 26 in the next year, would you like to send 5 birds to this race?
There was a visit from Canada who wanted to do some business with me, so I could not let you know this pre-race's result immediately. This race was very hot and head wind, some clubs came back 10% or some clubs were 20%.You birds were first, fourth, and 11st in my club, that were 03, 06, and 07. The 01 was too skinny, so let him stay at home.
I finished 9-62-73-74-125-126 in yesterdays WTCM Race. They are amazing birds. I won the club 300 today, 1-2-9-10-11.
The 250 mile club race this past weekend I was 2-3-4-6 and 8th. And I think I will be 2nd and 3rd CJC Combine. I also placed 2nd and 3rd in the Patterson 2 bird 350 mile air derby. 35 lofts only 6 day birds and I had 2 of them, 9 hrs. and 23 min.
Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that I'm consistently clocking a youngster off the birds I bought from you. Let me know if you want some business from Chicago. I can tell the guys that you have a few birds for sale. Also if you get a minute and have your racing program written down.... e-mail it to me. Our main race is in 3 weeks. I will let you know how your bird does.
Thanks in advance for the birds you want to send me. I will surely let you know how they perform. Also congratulations on your success in Taiwan.
Last Sunday we had our first race 100 miles. I clocked your bird 1st in my loft and 8th in the club. He will be in the top 15 positions in the combine for sure. I don't know exactly yet but I'm sure there was around 2000 pigeons competing. The race was bad for me because I have a short line and all birds over flew my loft (bad winds too). But I am very excited to see this cock in the next race 150 miles. He looks exactly like sure bet only he is a blue check. He even has the same yellow eye like sure bet. I'm looking forward to flying more of your birds. This was the only bird off your bloodline that was sent this week.
Also I just want to let you know I was 2nd in the Windy City race winning $15,000.
Thank you again Victor.
I have no words to thank you for all the birds I got from you. I won the first three club races in my club and 11th place in the Windy City Race in Chicago with your phenomenal family of birds.
Another Winner from my Sure Bet / Rocket family. 1st bird (seven bird drop) in the 2010 Shasta Classic 320 miler on 10/17.
My very good friend Victor Valenzuela, I can tell you that the birds you sent to Snowbird this year excel the word of quality.
Anthony & Rivera
From your brothers in Miami, thanks for everything and your phenomenal family of birds, 777 is one-of-a-kind, this hen is priceless.
Thank you again.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the extraordinary family of birds acquired from you when we went to Las Vegas two years ago, we had won countless club races and this year the San Diego Triple Crown Classic.

Hi Vic, just wanted to let you know one of the 4 birds that I sent to the Mercedes score 10th at the 200 miles and 5th on the last race at the 300 the bird band is JHS 209 this bird is out of my Sure Bet pair I got from you, I don't know how to paid you for such a super family of birds thanks you a millions I think I will sent it on the 400 miles race CBS is offering.
Just wanted to add my thoughts to you and your tremendous birds. Although, I have never personally met you, I find you an honest man dealing with your tremendous family of birds you and your sidekick Sure Bet have created. These birds have really improved my bird's performance. I have crossed these birds and bred them straight with astounding results. They have truly performed better than expected. I have every expectation that you will keep these birds intact with future breedings The performance of these birds across the pond and here in the USA is just mind boggling. These birds are truly made in the USA and bred to perform. Let the records speak for themselves....
John H. Stelling
"797 SURE BET 2009 AU a SMOKEY BB HEN" does it again in a 200 mile near smash race with 10 mph head winds! She may top the CJC SHEETS this week!
This is one of the two birds I sent Al and what a super pigeon super racer and a super breeder, pure quality the real deal congrats Al.
The other bird from the 2009 IF Convention Race was "797 SURE BET 2009 IF", a BB H which was flown in the CJC OB'S and was 14th vs. 2,890 birds from 205 lofts on 4/24/10. That is not the amazing part! I bred a round from her before the season and put the two in an auction race I only got one back as I was outbid. "302 NWJ 2010 IF BC H" was an outstanding racer. She was clocked up front on six races. (48th vs. 2,125 birds from 151 lofts, 87th vs. 2,390 birds from 184 lofts, 13th vs. 2,059 birds from 163 lofts and 12 seconds from winning the North Section). In the (51st Annual LCM Race -2010 she was 100th vs. 945 birds from 133 lofts and 11th in the auction race), in the (Tyson Challenge Cup she was 52nd vs. 551 birds from 52 lofts) and in Greater Elizabeth Turkey Race #3 she was (3rd vs. 15 birds from 15 lofts 1 minute and 21 seconds off the win!) ps my brothers took 1st and 2nd!
Sincerely your friend,

Most people would stock a proven breeder with a Surebet banded bird but not me! (797 SUR BET 2009 IF BB hen) came a heartbeat away from winning the CJC 500 mile race on 6-20-11 vs 1,578 birds from 124 lofts taking 2nd overall!
