Having returned to Holstein, Connor has again succeeded in attracting the breeders’ attention. By now, his offspring are internationally successful, confirming his value as a breeding stallion.
The combination of the successful sport blood of Casall and the full sister to Corrado I guarantees high-performing and resilient sport horses.
Connor is a big-framed stallion with a particularly strong back, and with long and correct legs. Connor is coming to the fore as a sire and attracting the breeders’ attention through his offspring. For example his son Conner JEI and Martin Fuchs provide publicity for Connor on a regular basis with top placings on the international scene.
By now many of his offspring have arrived at the highest level in sport showing that he does not prefer a certain bloodline to others. The mares should rather have a long enough body and produce horses with a sweet personality.

His sire Casall is a high-profile international performance sire considered one of the top achieving international sport horses of his time. His offspring, like for example Austria with Kent Farrington, Caillou with Karl Cook (USA), Ariso under Jordan Coyle (IRL), Caracas with Jos Verloy (BEL), Casallvano under Daniel Deusser or Wunschkind with Eric van der Vleuten (NED) underline his exceptional ability to pass on quality.
Connor’s dam is a full sister to the licensed stallion Corrado I, successfully shown at international level by Bo Kristoffersen and Franke Sloothaak from 1991 to 1997, chalking up grand prix wins for example in Leuwaarden, Dortmund, Aarhus, Neumünster, and Kiel. Corrado I succeeded in establishing a sire line of his own in Holstein and went on to produce international top horses like Corrada (Peter Charles), Cosima (Markus Fuchs), Think Twice (Leopold van Asten), Clinton (Dirk Demeersman) and Corradina (Carsten-Otto Nagel) for two decades.
The female line 6879 ranks among the high achievers of the Holsteiner studbook. Already in the 1950s, this mare family attracted attention with the successful mares Baden (Hans Evers) and Original Holsatia (Fritz Thiedemann), later with Landlord (Breido Graf zu Rantzau, Ludger Beerbaum), and Lausbub (Achaz von Buchwaldt). Later representatives include Carlina, who competed at the London Olympics with Switzerland’s Pius Schwizer and Cassiato, winner of world cup classes with Australian Harley Brown.
At six- and seven-year-old, Connor chalked up numerous wins in young horse classes and jumping classes up to S level, including the first ever Elmhorn seven-year-old jumping championship in 2013. Further improving his performance, he achieved numerous placings in jumping classes to S** level in 2014.
In 2016, Connor was leased to France and the ride given to Nicolas Delmotte. The two of them have teamed up excellently and can look back on wins and placings at 1.45m level, for example at the Fontainebleau, Maubeuge, and Bonheiden shows.
As Connor’s sons and daughters continue to prove themselves on the international sport scene, they are putting their sire on the radar. Top performers like Conner JEI (Martin Fuchs), Charmie (Antonio Alfonso/ITA), and Connor (Tanner Korotkin/USA) are by Connor. In 2022, he had the champion of the six-year-old jumping horses in France, Connorado d'enfer (Connor-Cayado) while HSH Connor by Connor-Mermus R became vice champion of the six-year-old eventing horses in Le Lion d'Angers.
He has already produced twelve state premium mares and ten licensed sons in Holstein, including Chubakko, a stallion successfully shown by Christian Kukuk, Connect, as well as the premium stallions Christer and Coruscant.
