In 2018, the international debut of our OS reserve winner, Ib main premium winner and German championship qualifier Casallco was on the agenda. Ridden by Bastian Freese, the large-framed show-jumping course specialist has shown his ability for the high level with serial victories in show-jumping classes. At his stallion performance test in 2014 in Schlieckau, he scored three times the perfect score of 10.0 for his jumping abilities.
With his first crop of foals, who were almost all awarded, Casallco proved to be high-quality sire. Among his licensed sons is Cavoiro H, OS Champion Stallion and show-jumping stallion performance test winner. Casallco’s offspring demonstrate virtually limitless abilities when loose jumping and on show-jumping courses.
With Casall, Contender, Carthago and Calypso II, Casallco combines the absolute best of the Holstein breed in his pedigree. Furthermore, the line founder Cor de la Bryère appears four times in his pedigree.
With prize money of around 4.2 million euros, his sire Casall was one of the highest earners. Ridden by Rolf-Göran Bengtsson/SWE, the son of the great Caretino won the Global Champions Tour overall ranking, the Leipzig World Cup final and the European Championship team bronze medal. He often competed at high level against his no less successful offspring, who placed him in the top ten of the world’s best jumper sires according to WBFSH for the first time in 2015. Among his over 70 licensed stallions are the two Holstein Champion Stallions Cadilo and Casaltino as well as the Reserve Champions Catch it and Cascadello I, the latter of which was auctioned for a record price of 600,000 euros.
His dam Zelda IV is the full sister of the internationally ranked Chocoprince and half-sister of the show jumping World Championship finalist Chasseur Ask Z (by Casall).
His dam sire Contender produced numerous internationally successful show-jumpers. In Germany alone, they have won almost eleven million euros in prize money.
Grand dam Marli is full sister to the licensed stallion Chippendale, who is successful up advanced (S) level in show-jumping.
Carthago, who appears in the third generation, took part in the Olympic Games in Atlanta/USA and Sydney/AUS with Jos Lansink/BEL. He also won the Nations’ Prizes in Aachen, Rotterdam/NED and La Baule/FRA and is considered to be one of the most influential sons of Capitol I in breeding.
In the fourth generation, Contender’s influential sire Calypso II appears a second time, followed by Ramiro’s exceptional son, Rio Negro.
Casallco represents the Holstein lineage 8798, which is of Hanoverian origin, and has also produced the licensed stallions Hemmingway, Le Filou I and II and the internationally successful show-jumping horses Charly Brown/Uwe Volmer and Marc Bettinger as well as Quenaro.
