ZUCCA is a smaller very elegant filly.
Her sire CYRANO Z was a very accomplished show jumper himself. Shown under the name of "Jet Blue" ridden by Derek Braun.CYRANO Z’s sire CATANGO Z is a stallion with a fantastic pedigree. His background includes many celebrities, such as CANTUS, HEUREKA Z, CAPITOL I, CALYPSO I, CALETTO II, ALME Z and LADYKILLER XX. His grand-sire CANTUS is known as one of the best breeding stallions for jumping horses. CANTUS left many top-class jumpers behind, including CALVARO V from Willi Melliger (Switzerland), who always finished in the best four in the last four championships. Also the mare line of CATANGO Z, lineage 7126 in Holstein, has produced many great names: FRA DIAVOLO, ACORD I and II, BURGGRAAF, FREEMANN and many more. CATANGO Z's dam ZITA is a daughter of the HEUREKA Z son AHORN Z, bred at Zangersheide at the time. ZITA is the sister to the stallions ACOBAT I and II by ATHLET Z. They all come from the CAPITOL I daughter TSCHITA, who is a daughter of ORUNA by CALIYPSO I, this mare caused a sensation in the International jumping sport under the name of GRAFIN. She is a full sister to the stallion CHICAGO and the mare RIBECKA. CYRANO Z’s dam CERISE Z is sired by CALANDO I, who was sold into show jumping after a three year covering stint and became a real hit. He became German Champion in 1984 under Karsten Huck and in the very same year managed to get placing’s in Rome, Dublin and the Calgary Grand Prix'. Thereafter, under E H Cupper of Belgium, he achieved countless further international successes. CALANDO I’s sire needs no introduction; he is the cornerstone of sport horse breeding COR DE LA BRYÈRE is the stallion that revolutionized jumping horse breeding. COR DE LA BRYÈRE quickly made a strong impression upon arrival to Germany by becoming the 1971 Champion of the 100 day stallion performance test. In his first season at stud, COR DE LA BRYÈRE covered 70 mares with four colts from this first crop becoming licensed stallions. He was a stallion of great vigor and, even as late as 1977, still served a full book of 111 mares. Renowned for his amazing jumping bascule and "cat-like" elasticity, combined with a marvelous temperament and beautiful canter, COR DE LA BRYÈRE soon became the ideal refining stallion to cross with the larger framed mares to produce more modern equine athletes that combined the German Warmblood power and substance with the Selle Francais lightness and athleticism to achieve some outstanding performers. Famous names hailing from the stallion COR DE LA BRYÈRE who had 85 approved sons such as CALANDO I, (who is also the sire of one of our broodmares CALANDA) to V, CALETTO I to III, CALVADOS I and II, CALYPSO I to V, CORRADO I and II, CORTINO I and II, COME BACK I and II, CORTEZ I and II, CARDINAL, CARACAS, CONSTANT, CONVENT, CANSAS, CANTARES, CASSONE, CANNONBALL, CAPRICCIO, CORVADO, CINZANO, CORDS BOY VZ, CORDALME Z, CADENCE Z, CORDEUR, CHAIRMAN, CICERO, CORIALL, CARNEVAL, CASTOR, COUNTDOWN, COR DE BRILLANT, COR D' ALME Z, CAPITAL, CARTE D' OR, CARUSO, CABARET, CALIMBO, CASH, CASANOVA, CHACO, CHANTRE, CHIRON Z, MR.

He also produced such performance horses as the International show jumpers CALANDO, CALETTO, CHANEL, CHICA, CONTRAST and COLLANDUS, European champion - 1987 and silver Medalist, Olympic Games, Seoul, 1988. Also in CYRANO Z’s dam’s pedigree is the legendary stallion CAPITANO, the foundation sire of the Holsteiner CAPITOL line which has produced numerous Olympic and International show jumpers. CAPITANO passes on his signature jumping style seen in his offspring below. CAPITAN’s fraternal brother CAPITOL is the sire of Olympic show jumpers DOBEL’ CENTO –gold medalist, GITANIA, VDL CARDENTO. CARTHAGO. Famous offspring include CASSINI I who was a successful showjumping competitor with Denmark’s Bo Kristoffersen - as a nine-year-old Cassini I was part of the Danish Nations Cup team in Helsiniki, and participated in the European Championship in Mannheim. Franke Sloothaak took over the ride, and again achieved success in World Cup qualifiers and Nations Cups. Also CASSINI II, CAROLUS, INDOCTRO, and 40+ approved sons and grandsons in every studbook. HEILBUTT is the grand dam sire of CAPITOL, CAPITANO is the dam sire of CASSINI I who is the most sought after Holsteiner sire in the world, his son CUMANO was the hero of the 2006 WEG – the giant grey Holsteiner that not only carried his rider, Jos Lansink to a world title, but also gave the other three riders in the jumpoff, all of them ladies, a lovely ride each time.

Her dams sire ALEXIS Z is recognized by the Zangersheide, Westfalen, Hannoverian, Holsteiner, Swiss, Italian, French and Suddeutsche Zuchtverbande studbooks and is a sire of ten approved sons, including World Cup and Grand Prix winner AMARETTO D I ; Allez France D, winner of 60 Grade A; Alpha D, top sire and Rhineland-Pfalz master; Apricot D II, winner of the stallion approvals; Barcelona Olympics Silver Medalist Apricot D; and Amaretto D II himself, Grand Prix winner and World Cup Competitor. Alexis Z was ranked in the top twenty sires of show jumpers in the world for 1990-1997. Alexis Z is by Almé Z, one of the leading sires in the world, an international grand prix winner and son of the French stallion Ibrahim. This line has produced the Grand Prix winner and top sire Galoubet, World Cup winner I Love You, and Seoul Olympics competitor Jalisco, himself the sire of world champion Quito de Baussy, Grand Prix stallion Olisco, and Atlanta Olympics Individual Silver Medalist Rochet M. The dam of Alexis Z is Wonne, a grand prix winner and a daughter of Weingau, a known producer of show jumpers. The golden bay Anglo-Norman stallion Almé Z is a phenomenon. Without ever having stood at stud in Germany, the 1966 French born Ibrahim son influenced almost all the German warmblood breeds from the Belgian model studfarm of Zangersheide. Before he went to stud in Belgium, he had already performed covering duty at his French home and left inter alia the approved sons Galoubet, I love you and Jalisco, all of whom have played a role in international showjumping. Almé Z was himself a successful international showjumper with Francois Mathy and Johan Heins and transmitted his gift for jumping lavishly to his progeny. The overwhelming number of Zangersheide products carried the Hanoverian brand. However despite the fact that two of the three Almé Z sons standing in Holstein had Hanoverian dams, the Holstein Association, which otherwise looks askance at any form of extraneous blood, did not hesitate to avail themselves of the Almé Z blood. Ahorn Z who was bred out of the famous Holstein mare Heureka, as well as the stallion Aloubé Z and Athlet Z deriving from Gotthard broodmares managed to make their imprint in the Holstein breed and to found their own stallion lines. The chestnut stallion Alexis Z exerted an enormous influence on horse breeding in the South West of Germany or more precisely, on Rhineland-Palatinate-Saar. Initially only used to cover the private herd of mares of the Drachenhof stud, the popularity of this stallion has meanwhile spead to the whole of Germany. Alexis Z likewise received special treatment by the Northern German breeding associations who gave the green light for his utilisation. His progeny can be found in Holstein as well as in Hanover. Alexis Z is out of the Hanoverian mare Wonne who was a successful international competition horse under Peter Schmitz. While the Almé Z sons were on their march of victory through equestrian Germany the, French breeders did not remain inactive and made use of the outstanding Almé Z sons in their breeding programmes. Galoubet, who himself was highly successful with Gilles Bertrand de Ballanda (trademark: vehement lashing out) became sire of the small but nevertheless great stallion Quickstart, who with Meredith Michaels (now Beerbaum) won Grand Prix’s more or less in series and covered in Oldenburg. The Galoubet grandson Quattro B (via Qredo de Paulstra), who apart from outstanding breeding achievements also enjoyed successes on the course with Gilbert Böckmann is also performaing stud duty in Oldenburg. Of late Holstein is also utilising Almé Z blood again via Quidam de Revel, in order to place this line on a broader basis. Where there is a lot of light, there is obviously also shade. A considerable number of the strong performers of Almé Z approved sons and grandsons were troubled just like their sire resp. Grandsire, by scrotal hernia, which means that following a colic, many had a testicle removed. Still, Almé Z was one of the most significant sires of the twentieth century and most certainly the first who deserves the title of “Euro-stallion”.
On her dam side, again two of the best jumper producers, LANDGRAF I who is a legend, not only in the Holsteiner breeding, but worldwide, he has produced 45 approved sons and such sport horses like LANDVOGT, LAVENDEL, LANCIANO, LANDWIND, LOVELY BOY, LASALL, LAUSBUB, LACROSS, LANDLORD, LUCKY LUKE, LANDEGA, and LIBERO H, with over 25 international jumping wins to his credit and 10 Grand Prix and World Cup wins. In 1990 and 1991 also under his rider Jos Lansing he was champion stallion in Holland, also in 1991 LIBERO H was European champion in La Baule. LIBERO H is the full brother to another stallion standing at EWSZ inc. LIBERO. LANDGRAF I's sire is the very popular stallion LADYKILLER XX; this stallion produced 36 approved sons. Also on her sires side another legiant in the Holsteiner breeding FARNESE, one of the corner stones of the old Holsteiner breeding. He has product such horses as AMIGO ridden by Ted Edgar. COR DE LA BRYÈRE who had 41 approved sons such as CALANDO I to V, CALETTO I to III, CALVADOS I and II, CALYPSO I to V, CORRADO I and II, CORTINO I and II, COME BACK I and II, CORTEZ I and II, CARDINAL, CARACAS, CONSTANT, CONVENT, CANSAS, CANTARES, CASSONE, CANNONBALL, CAPRICCIO, CORVADO, CINZANO, CORDS BOY VZ, CORDALME Z, CADENCE Z, CORDEUR, CHAIRMAN, CICERO, CORIALL, CARNEVAL, CASTOR, COUNTDOWN, COR DE BRILLANT, COR D' ALME Z, CAPITAL, CARTE D' OR, CARUSO, CABARET, CALIMBO, CASH, CASANOVA, CHACO, CHANTRE, CHIRON Z, MR. COX, CINZANO, CONCORDE, COR DE ANGELO J, COR DOR, COREA, CORLAND, CORVINIUS, COSINUS B. He also produced such performance horses as the International show jumpers CALANDO, CALETTO, CHANEL, CHICA, CONTRAST and COLLANDUS, European champion - 1987 and silver Medalist, Olympic Games, Seoul, 1988. Without any doubt, COR DE LA BRYÈRE deserves the title of foundation sire!
