    2011 colt, hunter-jumper prospect by the holsteiner verband stallion Castino. At the Holstein stallion licensing they stated "A magnificent stallion with an impressive athletic build, perfect conformation, an expressive face and modern type" Castino's sire, Cassini II, is increasingly emerging from his famous full brother's shadow with progeny that have accumulated lifetime earnings of almost EUR 300,000. 26 of his offspring are approved stallions and several of them are state premium mares. Cassini II unites the performance genes of multiple Olympic horse producer Capitol I with those of Caletto II, sire to Olympic gold medal winner Classic Touch. Castino's dam line is also pretty impressive. His dam, O-Caretina, received a perfect 10.0 for jumping in her mare performance test, full brother Carino qualified for the 2008 World Cup final and full brother Canzero is an approved stallion with an excellent competition record for his age in novice show jumping classes up to 1.30 m level. Holstein dam line 5951 guarantees successful competition horses.

    The dam of this colt is by Lansing a producer of Champion approved stallions, State Premium mares & Premium foals. He has produced the record holding price for an unapproved stallion & has a number of sons/daughters competing in sport. Lansing is from the same mare and thus a half brother to the superstar stallion, Calvin Z, who has produced world champions at both age group levels & Grand Prix levels. His dam, Monoline, is also the dam of progenitor, Cantus, who sired the legendary show jumping gold medallist winner, Calvaro V and the stallions Come On, Callido 1, Callido 11 and Cascavel.
    Grand dam is the beautiful holsteiner stallion Corrado. Under an agreement between the Verband and Franke Sloothaak’s Corrado was campaigned by Franke . He was intelligent, fast & careful, so he learnt & improved rapidly. The pair won the Grand Prix of Leeuwarden in 1993, & were second in the Nations Cup at La Baule. In 1994, Corrado won the World Cup Qualifier at Dortmund & finished third in the Nations Cup at Aachen. He also won the German Championship that year. In 1996, he won the Danish World Cup Qualifier at Aarhus, & the Grand Prix of Neumünster & Kiel. In 1997, Franke and Corrado were third in the Hamburg Grand Prix & fourth in the Grand Prix of Göteborg.
    As a sire, Corrado was again, an instant success. His international jumpers include: Classic H with Helena Persson, Cher with Piet Raymakers, Corrada with Peter Charles, Cosmina with Markus Fuchs, Cosmos Star with Evelyne Blaton, Caramia with Espen Johannsen, Canyon with Tim Grubb, Think Twice with Leopold van Asten, and Cabrio with Felix and Toni Hassman. Perhaps his most spectacular son is the grey stallion, Clinton, who was individually 4th at the Olympic Games in Athens, and second behind Shutterfly at Aachen in 2005.
