The discovery from the Holsteiner approval
With the characteristics of an important sire Baggio knows how to impress his observer. Long legs combined with an extremely modern type form a symbiosis with a body that is able to act in every situation with plenty of power. Taking into consideration that Baggio is a showjumper, his movements can be qualified as extraordinary. His trot is always swinging while his uphill canter represents one the big timeless virtues of Holstein breeding. When Baggio starts his loose-jumping demonstration, he even knows to exceed all expectations. Very cautious, he’s the master of every situation. His scope ist just exceptional and recommends Baggio as a big hope for international showjumping classes.
From the genetical point of view, Baggio couldn’t be more interesting. His sire Baloubet du Rouet took the individual gold medal at the Olympics in Athens (2004) and won the World Cup Final three times in a row. His offsprings‘ successes out him in the meantime into the leading position of the WBFSH-ranking for sires. In Brantzau’s pedigree the french-bred Baloubet du Rouet meets the legendary Carthago who jumped the Olympics twice with Jos Lansink and became one of the most important sires of his generation. Brantzau’s damline is from Holstein (Stamm 104a), he was born in France, started his career successfully in Germany and is now a big hope in the stables of the Dutch world-class rider Jur Vrieling. Baggio is part of his first crop.
There’s no more important Holsteiner sire alive than Baggio’s damsire Casall. With Rolf-Göran Bengtsson (SWE) he jumped several championships and took the win in many 5*-Grand Prix. There are 221 Casall-offsprings succeeding at 1,40m-level and more only in Germany. At the moment, Casall is found in third position of the WBFSH-ranking of showjumping sires. Casall is followed by Concerto II in Baggio’s pedigree. Concerto II who deceased too soon has spent just three breeding seasons in Holstein. Nevertheless, he turned out to be one of the best sons of the important Contender. He produced many international showjumpers such as Cash (Tjark Nagel), Carassina (Thomas Kleis) or Calle Cool (Nisse Lüneburg). Baggio‘s granddam Montana XX is the mother of four international showjumpers. She’s from an appreciated Holstein damline (Stamm 503) having delivered Livius, the once-in-a-lifetime horse of the German Peter Luther.
