Pilothago is an Westphalian ‘Prämie’ stallion and the last approved son of the legendary sire Pilot. Both as a sire and a dam’s sire or grandsire Pilot’s value in breeding is still of great importance. International showjumping stars like Priamos, Bugatti Pedro, Pirol, Poker and Pia Lotta are all direct offspring by the famous Pilot, while his approved sons also have made name for themselves. Just think of Iroko and Peter Pan and another 90 (!) approved stallions by Pilot.
In the second generation, the pedigree of Pilothago goes back to two-time Olympic showjumper Carthago and the world-class sires Stakkato and Grannus. Also the damline of Pilothago is of great strength: dam Valerie already produced the Westphalian approved stallion Diathago and she is the half-sister to the international showjumper Maximo del Castegno and the 1.50m jumper Gioia del Castegno, both ridden by Roberto Prandi. In addition, Pilothago’s granddam Sera del Castegno is the full sister to the Oldenburg and Hanoverian approved Sicerto, who jumped at international level with Rolf Moormann.
Pilothago stood out with his talent as a showjumper during the 70-days-test in Neustadt-Dosse, earning an 8.75 for jumping under the saddle. For his character he received several 8s. Pilothago catches the eye with his enormous power and carefulness and looks to be a great talent for the future. His first offspring was born in 2014 and they seem to have great types, a good canter and elasticity.
