With exceptional sport horse and top sire Quick Star crossed to Holsteiner top sire Concerto II and French once-in-a-century stallion Cor de la Bryère in the female line, the dam line traces back to Virgina, a foundation mare in the Ritter family’s breeding programme. Concerto II daughter Nienburg III
has also stepped into the limelight through her produce, including Compadre van de Helle, at just 10-year-old a highly successful sport horse with placings at 1.60m level under Constant van Paesschen and the Holsteiner-licensed stallions Casquetto and Ferron. The last named stallion’s one year older full sister, Dithmarsia, was placed in several jumping classes at M level under junior rider Janne Ritters in 2018.
A daughter of TB sire Frivol, and from Caletto’s mare family 730B, Virgina boasts a tremendous number of performance descendants including Marius, Cefalo and Cassilano, through her daughters.
A particularly interesting aspect of Caracho’s genetic background is his breeder’s deliberate decision for line-breeding to the successful stem 730B in order to consolidate the positive traits of this successful line.
