May 20, 2022 · Exclusive Broodmare Online Auction 2022
DELIVERING THE BEST
Capital Stud have invested in ‘growing their own’ champions for many years, and know the dividends this process pays. It therefore gives them great pleasure to introduce you to their first ever Broodmare Auction, where they offer their clients the opportunity to purchase their own mares in foal to Capital’s world-class stallions, and access all of the exclusive opportunities available at Summerhill.
This opportunity seeks to allow owners to experience the process, whilst also providing a more affordable way of creating your own sporthorse champion from the world’s best bloodlines. Whilst these mares are hugely valuable to Capital Stud, they believe that the growth of the sport depends on quality sporthorses being made accessible to those with the talent to produce them.
These mares, in foal to selected world-class stallions, are set to deliver the very best progeny. From world- ranked number one stallion Chacco Blue to Baloubet du Rouet and Heartbreaker, and out of the proven and sought-after marelines such as the lines of Usha van’t Roosaker, Qerly Chin and more, the world’s best bloodlines are all showcased here, and Capital Stud are thrilled to offer you the opportunity to buy into these bloodlines and experience the thrill of cultivating your own Capital sporthorse.
As an added advantage, upon purchasing your broodmare from the Auction, Capital Stud are offering for owners
to keep their mares and foals at Summerhill Equestrian where they will be raised ‘the Capital way’ until you are ready to start your competition journey. From foaling down, to weaning and backing, the whole process can be managed for you by the expert team at Summerhill Equestrian. After foaling, all mares remaining at Summerhill Equestrian will then be eligible for future coverings from Capital stallions, another exclusive opportunity available to those wanting to invest in their future in the sport.
Capital Stud are proud to present this collection, and hope you will join them on the 23rd and 24th of June as they ‘deliver’ their next chapter in bringing the world’s best bloodlines to Southern Africa.
In the June edition of HQ Magazine we will be delving in detail into the broodmares on offer on this unique auction, and their future foals. For this issue, we wanted to introduce you to the brand-new Capital stallions ‘responsible’ for many of the foals on offer. Of course, the collection also features the proven Capital Kronos, Capital Cornet Blue, Capital My Friend and others, but these four new stallions are fresh to South Africa and the bloodlines they bring into the mix makes them deserving of a special introduction.
A NAME HE’LL LIVE UP TO
Capital Legacy’s parents are both popular figures in the South African showjumping hall of fame. His sire, Capital Levubu, needs little introduction and his mother, Capital My Lady, needs even less. This pairing combines Cassini I on both sides of the pedigree, Capital Levubu has competed up to the 1.50m level with Bronwyn Dos Santos. Capital Levubu is sired by the Caretino son Cachas, who sadly died at the young age of 10. When Cachas completed his 30-day test in 2012 he scored a 10.0 for jumping ability, 9.25 for character and 9.00 for his canter. As shown with Levubu, Cachas produces modern type offspring.
Levubu’s mother, Zinnia I, has produced many top horses for Capital Stud such as Capital Levubu, Capital New Star, Capital Pretorius, Capital Qorland, Capital Unicorn and recently the imported foal Capital V-Power. She has also produced top broodmares, for example, Capital Melissa who produced Capital Ayden, Capital Stud’s top seller. Zinnia I is by one of the most successful Holstein stallions Cassini I. Cassini I’s most successful offspring are the very well-known stallions Cumano and Berlin. This year is the first year that Levubu has offspring being sold on Auction.
Capital My Lady, fresh from winning her rider Thomas van Rijckevorsel a place at the Youth Equestrian Games in Aachen, is already a ‘household’ name. Small, fast, scopey, careful and ultra-modern, she proves an intimidating opponent in any class. Her father, Untouchable 27, has a very impressive damline. His dam is a daughter of Heartbreaker and an ‘elite sport mare’ named Promesse, who is also the mother of Escape Z. Untouchable 27 has competed at the top level with multiple different riders; he is known for his conformation, strong back and powerful hindquarters. He passes on scope and elegance.
Capital Legacy thus combines Capital Levubu, the tall horse with enormous scope and bravery, with Capital My Lady who is extremely agile, careful and, again, brave. Combining these two creates the ultimate modern sporthorse with scope, technique, carefulness and courage.
CAPITAL’S TODOS DE REGOR (CHACCO BLUE X CENTA DE MUZE (CENTO))
OUT OF A ‘SUPERMARE
Capital’s Todos de Regor was sold on the Flanders Auction. His sire, Chacco Blue, needs no introduction, still ranking as the number one stallion in the world. Similarly, Centa de Muze has a reputation for quality that precedes her, despite her young age. Described by the Flanders Foal Auction team as a ‘supermare’ Centa de Muze’s offspring are almost guaranteed to be potential international competitors. By way of illustration, her offspring including Freestyle de Muze, Horizon de Regor, Inri de Regor, Kerly de Regor and Melia de Regor all compete in the 1.50 – 1.60 level. Centa’s dam, Walloon de Muze is the second dam of the very impressive approved stallion Million Dollar. Walloon de Muze is out of the remarkable Qerly Chin who is probably one of the most well-known dams for breeding success, not only in terms of competition horses but also in terms of breeding exquisite broodmares, like Narcotique de Muze. Some examples of the offspring of the broodmares of Qerly Chin include I’m Special de Muze, Walnut De Muze, as well as many other 1.50 and 1.60 competitors.
CAPITAL’S HERMES POMMEX Z (HALIFAX X NUSHA (EMERALD VAN’T RUYTERSHOF)
PERFECTLY BRED AND BORN
Capital’s Hermes Pommex Z was sold on the Stephex Stables Auction, where he was described as being ‘perfectly bred and born’. By Halifax van het Kluizebox, who himself is by Heartbreaker, the blood running in this young stallion is laced with greatness. And yet, this stallion’s prowess in many ways lies in his damline; Nusha is out of the very best damline featuring Usha van’t Roosakker as her dam, who was not only a competitive 1.60m horse but has produced quality offspring and broodmares. Usha was widely acknowledged for being an outstanding open competitor, with a 10/10 jump and an endless willingness to perform. She has produced mares of whom five have already produced 1.50 competitors and also exciting stallions, like Kassandra van’t Roosakker.
Nusha is sired by the top competitor and breeding stallion Emerald van’t Ruytershof. Emerald has competed
at the top level including in the Rio Olympics in 2016. One of his most impressive offspring, Igor, qualified
for the Tokyo Olympics but was unfortunately unable to compete.
CAPITAL’S HARTON VAN DE BERGHOEVE Z
IT DOESN’T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS
Capital’s Harton van de Berghoeve Z was the top seller at the 2019 Zangersheide Auction, going for 76 000 Euros. His bloodlines see a combination of the top foundation stallions, Heartbreaker and Diamant de Semilly.
Harton is sired by Heartbreaker, who passed away last year, after competing at the very top level of the sport, and producing many offspring who continue to do the same. In the 2014 World Equestrian Games there were three sons and 15 grandsons of Heartbreaker, all demonstrating his trademark blood and agility. One of Heartbreaker’s very well-known sons, Halifax van Kluizebos is the father of Capital’s Hermes.
Hiamant van’t Roosakker’s damline goes back to the formidable mother of Grand Prix competitors Usha van’t Roosakker via Atoucha van’t Roosakker. Hiamant van’t Roosakker is also the full sister to 1.50m showjumper Gatoucha van’t Roosakker and half-sister to 1.60m jumper Electra van’t Roosakker. Being the daughter of the recently deceased elite foundation stallion Diamant de Semilly, who was the leader of the WBFSH in both 2015 and 2016, her inherited talent is immense. Diamant de Semilly has produced many excellent stallions like Emerald van’t Ruytershof, Quickly de Kreisker, Don VHP Z, Dominator 2000 Z and Mumbai, as well as broodmares. He is known for giving his offspring a huge amount of scope and they are widely described as being ‘natural born winners’.
Henning’s vision to breed world class horses and his commitment to the sport is seen through his great investment in the world’s best and current bloodlines. His attention to detail, commitment to using the best and the way he raises youngsters ensure that Capital Stud produces top-quality horses.
Capital Stud are excited to deliver this Exclusive Broodmare Auction, to provide Southern Africans with the opportunity to invest in their future in this sport.
Thank you for being part of the Capital Stud story.
