The first stallion prospects by Zirocco Blue in the Holsteiner breeding programme were watched with particular interest. Two sons have been stallion graded, one of them Zuccero, a grey from the Badendorf-based Köhncke family’s successful breeding programme.The medium-framed stallion is characterized by his expressive head with big, bright eyes. His top-line deserves special mention for its excellent proportions and strength. Zuccero’s legs are correct, with clearly defined joints and hooves of good shape and quality.Good movement is one of the prerequisites for a Holsteiner to betallion graded and Zuccero performed convincingly at Neumünster.The walk under saddle is very regular and ground-covering. At trot he is already balanced, and definitely ground-covering and rhythmic for a jumping horse. The canter is his best pace, energetic, very regular, and carried by powerful hindquarters.
His sire, Zirocco Blue, is a Dutch stallion with international bloodlines tracing back to a French damline through Mister Blue, Voltaire, and Le Tot de Semilly. Under his rider, Jur Vrielig, he has won Nations Cups and international grand prixs and took team gold at the Aachen Europeans in 2015. Mr. Blue used to be a highly successful international jumper under Bert Romp. Voltaire, by Anglo-Norman jumper sire Furioso, was successfully shown at international level by Jos Lansink. His special importance is due to a great number of offspring on the international show jumping scene. Le Tôt de Semilly is one of the most influential French jumper sires. His produce also includes Diamant de Semilly, so he is 2nd sire to Diarado. Zuccero’s dam, state premium mare Zarese, is by Caretino, a stallion himself performance tested in competition who made it to the top 10 of the WBFSH world sire ranking several times due to offspring including Casall, Cristallo, and Chandra. His 2nd dam, Sarese,a state premium mare as well, is by Contender, who sired a great number of international top horses including Chiara, Carlos, Montender,Conrad de Hus or Collin. The 3rd dam,Varese, by Calypso II son Coriolan, produced Lordano who took 3rd place in the Derby(Rolf-Göran Bengtsson).
Zuccero’s free jumping clearly demonstrates the advancement of Holsteiner breeding. His carefulness and jumping technique are exemplary and unquestionable an inheritance from great Cor de la Bryère. His jumping scope and powerful push-off demonstrate the qualities passed on by his sire Zirocco Blue.
