The Remarkable Qualities of a Champion
LaMarque’s exceptional character and performance abilities are undoubtedly influenced by his impeccable lineage that includes some of the most influential stallions of the century including Lansing, Carthago Z and Lord Calando. He has Ladykiller bloodlines on both is Dam and Sire’s side from Landgraf I and Lord.
Son of Lansing: International Grand Prix Champion
LaMarque’s sire, the famous grey stallion Lansing, is a German producer of numerous champion approved stallions, state Premium Mares and Premium Foals. As a five-year-old, Lansing won the prestigious Bundeschampionart (German National Showjumping Championships), a brilliant illustration of his impeccable lineage that includes Grandsire Landgraf I and Great-Grandsire Ladykiller. Lansing has been known to pass on his beautiful movement and extraordinary jumping ability to his offspring. In Germany, Lansing produced 30 1.40m-and-higher jumping horses and 4 approved stallions.
Lansing’s mother Monoline (by Roman) is a famous mare in Holstein. She produced the top sire Cantus (by Caletto I), who sired Calido I, and she produced Calvin (by Caletto II) who stood for a long time in Belgium. Lansing made his career in New Zealand, where he stood for about 11 years.
Grandson of Landgraf I
Landgraf I, a son of Ladykiller, is widely considered one of the most influential sires of show jumpers. The list is long: Freestyle won the Aachen Grand Prix, Libero won the Dutch National title 5 times and the 1994 World Cup. There’s also dressage talent Loutano and champion producer Linaro. Landgraf I dominates the Holsteiner Stud book with 60 Colts and 340 Broodmares (260 are in the Head Stud Book and 70 have been awarded State Premium).
Dam: Goldkueste (by Lord Calando)
The State premium mare Goldkeuste was an international Grand Prix Jumper with Leo Philliparets. Her Grandsire, Lord Calando is by Holsteiner foundation sire Lord. Lord Calando is the sire of Luz Z, who, under Jerry Smit, participated in the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney and won the Pulsar Crown in Valkensawaard and Cannes. His winnings top one million euros. Lord Calando is out of Perra, dam of Carthago Z.
Her Holsteiner-approved son Cypriano (by Coriano) competed at 1.45m with Natalie Destree-Kradepohl. Her sBs and SF approved son Chatman (by Corofino I) competed at 1.60m with Jody Bosteels. Her son Larino 104 (by Lordano) is competing at 1.60m with Leandro Nicolas Moschni. And her son Livingston 11 (by Limbus) competed at 1.40m with Jessica Magens.
Grand Dam Perra (also dam of Carthago Z)
Perra is a granddaughter of Lord (by the legendary Ladykiller) who produced the international show jumper, Livius, ridden by Peter Luther. Together they won team medals at the 1981 European Championships, World Championships in 1982 and the 1984 Olympic Games. Along with Landgraf I, Lord is one of Ladykiller’s most influential sons, and has sired more than 60 stallions with progeny winnings topping three million euros.
Grand Dam Perra (also dam of Carthago Z)
Westkueste (by Ahorn Z) is also a State premium mare and she produced the 1.40m jumping horse Carisma (by Corofino I) with Adrian Schmid, her daughter I-Eternity jumped at 1.40m with Yvonne Elbers. Westkueste is also the mother of the approved Holsteiner stallion Cannonball (by Cor de la Bryère).
Great-Grand Dam Inis II
LaMarque’s great-grandmother Inis II produced the Prix St. George dressage horse Luciano 102 (by Landgraf I), who competed under the hands of Ellen Schaffer-Straubinger.
The branch of Inis II produced the approved stallions: Cortez I/II (by Cor de la Bryère), Carland (by Contender), Seven Valleys (by Sir Shostakovich xx) and Salahudine (by Sir Shostakovich xx).
It also produced the international jumping horses: Peter Lustig (by Conccerto II)—1.50m with Anna Dmitrieva; Criminal (by Caretino)—1.45m with Luis Jesus Escobar; Conception 2 (by Contender)—1.50m with Carsten Otto Nagel; AD Quantina (by Quantum)—1.50m with Athina Onassis; and Ciano 7 (by Corrado I)—1.40m with Dirk Schröder.
