Her sire LE COMTE II has proven himself in the breeding shed as well as in the show ring, competing at open jumper and up to Prix St. George in dressage. He is the full brother to the also approved stallion LE COMTE I who stands in Germany.
On his sires side he comes from the champion Holsteiner stallion LEANDER, who is best known for his presence and exceptional movement. LEANDER sired some superb sport horses like the champion dressage horse LIDQ 54. He also produced some excellent stallions like LEGATO, LAGANO (now breeding in Denmark), in Hessen, the champion stallion of 1982, LEANDERS's BOY (now in Switzerland) and LEANCON. With the mare TOSCANA he produced two approved sons LE COMTE I and LE COMTE II. Also in LE COMTE II's pedigree we find the legendary stallion LADYKILLER XX.

Her dam ELFRODITE is a moderate framed elegant black mare. She is a Swedish mare, that combines the best of both, Swedish and Hannoverian performance bloodlines and is extremely athletic with powerful movement. On her father's side she goes back to the famous Swedish stallion GASPARI, the sire of 11 approved stallions, he was probably one of the world's greatest producers of dressage horses. Himself a competitor at the Olympics in Rome, he was also the sire of PIAFF who was world, European and Munich Olympic Champion. He also sired the dressage stallions ELEKTRON, GASSENDI and FLYNGE HERKULES. One of GASPARI's daughters is also the dam of the World Cup final winner, silver medalist in the 1986 World Championship and bronze medal winner at the Seoul Olympics the stallion GAUGUIN DE LULLY. On her dam's side this interestingly bred filly goes back to the famous stallion DER LÖWE XX, who's progeny excelled in the sport and also his sons DER LORD, LIOSTRO and LUGANO I.
