Euro Sport Cassini D'Eclipse combines a star studded pedigree of the biggest and most famous names in Holstein.
His sire is the living legend Cassini I, himself a world class show jumper and sire to countless jumping stars. These include Eurocommerce Berlin (Gerco Schroder) and Cumano (Jos Lansink), both World Show Jumping Champions. Of great interest, is the fact that Eurocommerce Berlin is also out of a Caretino mare. This makes him a 3/4 brother to Cassini D'Eclipse!
Also one of the world renown VDL studs exciting up and coming stallions is Campbell VDL. He is by Cassini I out of a Carpaccio (by Caretino) mare. Not only this but Campbell VDL and Cassini D’Eclipse share the same maternal great grand dam, Harlita.
Cassini D'Eclipse's dam sire is the equally outstanding stallion Caretino. Again Caretino was a champion show jumper, going on to be one of the world's most respected sires of both show jumping and dressage horses.
Cassini D'Eclipse's dam is the young mare S Caretina. S Caretina has commenced her exciting competition career, jumping successfully to 1.40m within two seasons. S Caretina is a full sister to South Germany's 2004 Stallion of the Year, Caretello B! Caretello B had immense jumping power, and a fantastic competition career. Caretello B's progeny have already earned in excess of 1 million euro (2.1million NZD approx) in competition!
Cassini D'Eclipse himself is a stunning young colt with huge presence and athleticism combined with beautiful conformation. At his foal testing in Holstein he received the ranking of ‘Fohlenpramie’ or 'Premium', the highest given and is gained by only a small number of the best foals.
We have been incredibly lucky to secure this young stallion to present to New Zealand breeders. He is sure to be a future star!
