Offspring of Vigado
His first crop proved convincing with foals of athletic make and shape which doubtless suggest a future use and suitability as a sport horse.
He had as much as three foals from his first crop at the Holsteiner foal auctions. A very typey Vigado-Diarado colt (ZG Meyn-Winder, Bimöhlen) was knocked down at 12,000 euros at the elite foal auction.
