His progeny (Coster) has won the European Championship and competed in the Olympic Games, and has also been German Champion at the at the Young Rider's Championship (Callisto). The versatile Cascavelle, Castigo's dam's sire, has produced showjumpers, stallions as well as top-class mares.

His biggest achievement has been clearing 1.95m at the six-bar event. Castigo has had some outstanding results in the 1.45m classes including winning the 1.45m Burlington Cup with Chris van der Merwe in the saddle.
