Cor de la Bryere is one of the most significant foundation sires of the last century who revolutionized Holstein breeding. His progeny were horses with outstanding jumping ability and most importantly, he was a super producer of stallions such as Corrado, Corland, Calypso II and Cordalme Z who have moulded Holstein breeding to what it is today.
Thanks to his dam’s sire, Capitol I, Capriccio has inherited the blood that puts him in an elite league of stallions that are able to produce both outstanding sport horses as well as stallions who in turn, go on to sire top quality offspring. Capriccio’s damline, 18b1, is one of the best in the world.
Capriccio formally competed successfully in the open classes with a famous win in the 1.45m Championship class at the 2007 Cape Town show. Right before retirement, he scooped up tickets in the 1.30/1.35m classes with Celia Lecumberri. His front leg technique is tight and he is very brave, careful and good against the clock.
His offspring all have very good temperaments and share his good jumping ability and technique while being very careful and rideable. We look forward to what is to come from his progeny, who in this 2021 Auction are represented by Capital Cadillac.
