Just 3-years old, Quickthago combines world’s best showjumping bloodlines for his future in sport. Sire, Quickly de Kreisker, has been one of world’s most successful show jumpers, ridden by Abdelkebir Ouaddar, and was even in the number one spot of the FEI World Ranking. Quickly’s sire Diamant de Semilly lead the WBFSH Sire Ranking for many years and still is one of world’s leading sires. With offspring such as Don VHP Z, Inca Boy of ‘t Vianahof and Emerald, Diamant de Semilly still is among the best. Quickthago VDL’s dam’s sire is the ‘Preferent’ awarded stallion Numero Uno, who is the sire of many international show jumpers. As a dam’s sire, Numero Uno seems to be making his mark too. His carefulness, mentality and reflexes characterize both his children and his grandchildren. Then the pedigree of Quickthago goes back to the famous stallions Capitol I and Calando I.
The Capitol I-daughter A-Cover Girl is the grand dam of Quickthago. Ridden by Sweden’s Thomas Nilsson, A-Cover Girl jumped at Grand Prix level and is the full sister of the legendary stallion Carthago. Ridden by Jos Lansink, Carthago jumped twice at the Olympic Games; both in Atlanta in 1996 and Sydney in 2000. In breeding, A-Cover Girl produced the Grand Prix show jumper Lactic ridden by John Whitaker, as well as the international show jumpers Zatascha N and Lord Boy. Quickthago’s dam, Winning Girl, brought the approved stallion Gylord Carthago. Ridden by Spain’s Julio Arias, Gylord Carthago already jumps at 1.40m level as a very young stallion.
Quickthago earned his breeding license at the Oldenburger Stallion Show and at the Holsteiner Verband. He stood out with his light-footedness, reflexes and jumping technique. Additionally, this interestingly bred young stallion showed lots of athletic scope.
