The Cassini I blood has had a great impact on a whole era of Holsteiner breeding, culminating in his son Cumano and Jos Lansink winning the 2006 WEG. Other than Cumano, in particular Eurocommerce Berlin, Rosalia la Silla, Carino and Carambole have earned worldwide recognition for the Cassini I blood and thus the Holsteiner studbook.
Cumano’s importance lies not only in his sporting career but also in his stud value. Bred only for a few years, first and foremost in Belgium and France, he is a household name through offspring like Neptune Brecourt, Navalo de Poheton and Chilli Pepper van de Helle.
His resounding ability to pass on jumping quality, scope, and performance attitude is rooted in his sire line as well as in his dam line. With various highly successful branches, the mare family 318 counts among the most reliable jumping horse producers. Through Chanel II, a Landgraf I daughter, the dam line traces back to Weisse Dame, the famous Caletto II daughter. She in her turn carries Thoroughbred and Arabian blood through Marlon (TB) and Kalif.
