Chicoletto Z is a son of Cassini II, who is a full brother to the successful international show jumper and breeding stallion, Cassini I, who has sired licensed progeny such as Cumano under Jos Lansink, Casandra under Marcus Ehning and Cassino under Andreas Otto. Famous sons of Cassini II competing at 1.60 m GP level include C’est Si Bon with Thomas Schneider (GER), Kassini Jac with Ludo Philippaerts (BEL), Ophelia II with Kevin Staut (FRA), Chicago with Andreas Schou (DEN) and Lord of Arabia with John Withaker (GBR).
From Chicoletto Z’s dam’s side comes the stallion Coronado, who is rapidly gaining popularity as a sire of dams, with his dam being by Rebel Z, who is a full brother to Ratina Z – “Mare of the Century”. Coronado is one of the best producers of dams in Europe with top grand prix winners such as our own Capital Colnardo, who is now jumping with US rider, Jennifer Gates. Other great combinations out of a dam by Coranado are Ludger Beermaum’s Chiarra and Claire Z with Pieter De Vos from Belgium.
Having competed up to the 1.40m classes, Chicoletto Z shows incredible scope with his careful jump.
Capital Chicoletto Z’s (Cassini II x Coronado) contribution to Capital Stud, and to all of those who have had the joy of competing on him, has been immense. At 17 years of age, he now enters his well-deserved retirement from competition.
"Capital Chicoletto Z - thank you so much Old Man for what, at the end of your career, you have taught Jacob. You have given him so much experience. Thank you Henning for the opportunity you allowed him. And thank you to all those involved in the journey. Very grateful." Miles Peech
Thankfully his legacy does not end here, as Capital Chicoletto Z certainly passes his sought-after genes onto his progeny, and we are delighted to see these talented youngsters rising through the ranks of the South African showjumping scene.
Chicolette Z’s outstanding pedigree and careful jump has been passed down to his progeny. Two incredible examples of his offspring, namely Capital Carribean and Capital Casino Boy.-2017
