Nalacord’s Sire, Conte della Caccia is one of first sons of the international champion, Canturo, to win Holsteiner approval.
This young stallion comes from one of the most important Holsteiner bloodlines, which includes, amongst many others, champions such as Andretti, Calvados, Landos, Laval, Ramirado and the line founder Ramiro. His father, Canturo, was the last son of Cantus, from the stamm 162 line, which includes Carthago and Lord Calando.
His dam, Hoya, carries the blood of Corrado and Moltke I. Conte della Caccia is distinguished by his strength, agility and technique. With a good character, excellent rideability, physically robust and compact, he has all the potential to become both an exceptional sporting performer and a great stud horse. The stallion Conte was finalist at the Italian Championship for young horses when he was five and six y.o. Duriing the championship for the six y.o. he was was fifth classified in the final.

As to what mares, Canturo does not really throw type, he throws ability and performance so it is a matter of selecting mares for Corrado. As you can see from the Verband stallion list they are standing many young stallions with Corrado in their motherline. I am very high on Corrado. Corrado has an incredible 65% tb factor and Canturo 46%. Canturo, Calido, and Willemoes all have high factors which is why they throw modern offspring unlike the other Cantus sons with a lower factor. You can see that the Verband is using Corrado to increase blood. It is an incredibly good mareline, the offspring of Hoya and 776. Full sister Canturada is competing with Bernardo Alves and other sister has had 2 premium foals by Singulord. I would use him on my best mare. He is approved Zangersheide and SI (Italian Sporthorse). He will probably be approved Oldenburg.
Zandora is by QUICKSTAR who show-jumped at the highest level under Meredith Michaels.

Quick Star was at stud in the USA from 1985 on and from 1991 in Europe. The stallion is becoming increasingly popular, due to the striking performances of his offspring in show-jumping. The results of his progeny, including Sprehe Stella, Quilot Z, Quick Lauro Z and Quality Touch Z, are impressive.
On the Dam side, Zandora is out of Diana XIII by CALYPSO I, who was an incredibly important sire to the HOSTEINER breed and constantly passed on his best qualities to all of his offspring. His offspring have elegant Calypso I type and are endowed with fabulous basic gaits with fantastic trot and show extraordinary jumping ability. Calypso I was approved in 1975 and has produced 10 approved sons and 147 approved daughters.
