At just 16 years, he has already founded a sire line of his own and boasts excellent sons and licensed grandsons.
Only few stallions succeed in having such an impact in such a short time. At the same time, his offspring perform convincingly all along the line in competition, having become firmly established on the international scene and in young horse championships.
With his modern type and very well-constructed top-line he has had a very positive influence on the Holsteiner breeding programme in recent years. Many of his qualities which he also passes on to his offspring are of major importance for modern sport horse breeding. In particular his athleticism deserves special mention here. Already now, Uriko is a sport horse sire of extraordinary importance!
A successful sport horse and performance and jumping horse sire of international calibre, Uriko has had a great impact on the Holsteiner stud book these past years. The sheer number of his sport horse offspring is impressive. The mares bred to him should display good rideability and willingness to perform.

Uriko’s bloodline is highly interesting as he carries a unique combination of international top jumping sires.
Uriko’s sire Untouchable, performance-tested in competition at international top level himself, results from a cross of a son of French top sire Papillon Rouge to Dutch top stallion Heartbreaker. Through Carthago, Calypso I, Romantiker, and Cottage Son/TB the bloodline traces back to the important Holsteiner mare family 18A2.
Uriko’s dam Wizzard is a daughter of Lavaletto son Lavito, a maternal grandson of top sire Carthago. Wizzard’s dam line goes back to stem 4173 with crosses to the performance sires Corrado, Rocadero, Fasolt and Marlon/TB. Just recently, successful international sport horses from this family like for example Balourado, a Baloubet son ridden by Robert Smith, have been attracting attention.
Own Performance of Uriko
Uriko underwent performance testing in autumn 2011, with the judges confirming the talents previously shown by the young stallion. With his canter graded 9.25 and his jumping ability 8.83, his total stallion performance test-based breed value is 130.
Uriko boasts an impressive track record under Maximilian Gräfe as he won six jumping classes at S* level and was highly placed in jumping classes to S** level. He continued his success story under Ebba Johansson with placings to S*** level.

Offspring of Uriko
Uriko’s foal crops are characterized by very good type and have earned him 120 index points for type and conformation. He has already produced ten licensed stallions including Unlimited, the 2016 Holsteiner champion stallion, and Uno I, the 2017 reserve champion stallion. All in all, three Uriko sons have been licensed for breeding at the 2017 Holsteiner stallion grading.
His first sport horse offspring are very promising, like for example Uricas v/d Kattevennen, who is attracting attention at international level with Harrie Smolders. Moreover, his daughter Charisma HS put her sire on the radar: The Uriko-Cassito mare owned by Hugo Simon became National Champion of the five-year-old jumping horses with Richard Vogel in 2019 and is now highly successfully shown at international level by Sergio Alvares Moya (ESP). Uniquo is another Uriko offspring arrived at international level. He demonstrates his tremendous show jumping ability with Jérôme Guery and finished fourth in the four-star-rated competition in Stockholm, among other results.
