This time, Darco (one of the best sport sires of all time) is recognised in the direct bloodline as Homerus’ sire.
Homerus’ dam-line comes from the very successful Holsteiner line no. 162 (Carthago and Canturo) out of Cash/Lord, and his dam produced the winner of the Belgian Trophy for Young Horses in 2009 as well as a horse who placed in the final of the free-jumping competition at Mechelen in 2008. Homerus’ half brother, Couscous van Orti sired by Nabab de Reve competed in the CSI5* classes under Samuel Parot and continues to excel today.
Homerus grabbed attention from a young age by winning the free-jumping competiton for three-year-olds at President's Cup in 2010. Since then, he has developed up through the grades, currently having competed in many 1.50m Grand Prixes with Leona van der Merwe.
Homerus has produced incredible offspring with superb rideability and scope. Look forward to Capital Holden, Capital Hawk, Capital Hamden, Capital Harvard, Capital Harlem, Capital Hayward, Capital Hollybush, Capital Horizon, Capital Heartly and Capital Hollywell on auction this November 2021.
