Sire: Champaniero (Cassin x Barnaul xx x Ahorn Z x Farnese)
Modern grey 1,76 mtr., 2015 stallion with top character from the damline of Quaprice Bois Margot, Ornella and Operette la Silla. Champaniero is a modern Holstein-bred stallion out of a half-blood mother with an athletic long-lined sports model and a strong canter. His commitment, reflexes and scope stand out when jumping, which the gray stallion combines with a super cooperative character. He does not get this top character from a stranger: his now 15-year-old sire Cassin (Cassini I x Calido I) received several 10s for the character components in his performance test and his offspring stand out in Germany in the sport. His oldest offspring are now 11 years old and more than ten of them are already jumping at international 1.40m level or higher. The winnings of his descendants have already risen to 70,000 euros. Performance is also a given on the dam’s side: second dam Zita IX produced a 1.50m horse (Mefa’s Libero) and a 1.40m horse (Alecey) and the approved stallion Carbonnieux van de Helle. Great-granddam Flandia is also the grandmother of Jan Tops’ Operette la Silla and the great-granddam of the top-producing Grand Prix stallion Quaprice Bois Margot and his full sister, the 1.60m horse Ornella. Performance is anchored in this Holsteiner lineage 504.
