Beretta is a scopey 17.1hh bay Holsteiner stallion who boasts outstanding bloodlines. With excellent conformation and a temperament to match, he has a copybook jumping technique and a powerful canter.
The bloodlines he carries are still very much in the forefront of the best horses in the world; the starting list at the last World Equestrian Games featured many of his relatives. He is also extremely trainable and has a good brain. Beretta was bred using embryo transfer and imported semen of the KWPN stallion Burggraaf.
SIRE LINE – BURGGRAAF
Beretta is by the legendary stallion Burggraaf and from the stallion Cantus (who is from Roberto). Burggraaf is the product of the successful Holsteiner formula of Landgraf I x Cor de la Bryere. Landgraf I, Beretta’s grandsire, produced over 50 approved stallions and over 70 state premium mares just in Germany, and was head of the Germany yearbook; the total winnings of his progeny is over $6m AUD. That sum was earned by, amongst others, Libero H, Lanciano, Landlord, Lacors, Lucky Luke, Lasall, Landraetin, Londen, Landwind and Taggi.
Burggraaf’s dam Loanda is out of a unique Holsteiner breeding line (Stamm 7126), who produced Accord I, Accord II, Acrobat 1 to VI, Arico, Fra Diavolo, Chicago, Freeman, Cordon Bleu and Burgraaf. Burggraaf has a very high jumping index of 152 points. In terms of breeding, some of Burggraaf’s famous offspring in international show jumping include: Calando, Caletto, Chanel, Contrast and Corlandus. Burggraaf was very successful in the heavier classes of the National Stallion Competition, of which he won the finals and six of the seven rounds.
DAM LINE – CANTARA
Beretta is out of the German bred imported Holstein mare Cantara by Cantus. Cantus’ sire, Caletto I, was one of Germany’s most successful jumping competitors. His dam Monoline was by the tough competitor Roman and out of an advanced showjumper, USA. Cantus, who died far too early in 1994, was a successful sire of show jumpers right from the start. Come On, his internationally known approved son, won many times at Grand Prix and Nations Cup level. Cantus produced 25 approved sons, including Cassius Clay (1992 Viernheim champion stallion), Cascavelle, Colbert GTI, Canaletto, Cyrano and Celestial. At the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, the Cantus son Calvaro won the silver medal.
Beretta’s dam Cantara is also a World Cup Qualifier winner and was Australian Speed Champion in 2000.
Beretta’s full sister is the imported super talented mare Blatini. She has continued her jumping success in supreme style, winning eight World Cup Qualifiers and many Australian Grand Prix, making her one of the best jumping mares in Australia.
