Son of Liostro, Grandson of Ladykiller XX
Liostro is the last approved son of Ladykiller and the leading producer of money winners in the US in 2002. Lio shares lineage with Sapphire (grandson of Ladykiller), Mark Watring’s Pan American Games Gold Medal Horse. Ladykiller, incorporated into the German breeding system, is by far the most successful progenitor, passing on his type, head, correct foundation and jumping ability.
Calypso II’s Progeny
On Lio’s dam’s side, Calypso II’s progeny show great jumping form and rideability. His sons include: Contendor, Montender (Marco Kutscher), Coriolan, Colani, Chassur I and II. Grandsire Cor de la Bryère, with his incredible bascule and great jumping ability, is credited with improving the Holsteiner jumping style. “Corde” passes along strong nerves, intelligence and willingness to perform.
Lio’s progeny are making big impressions: Approved elite BWP stallion, Peterbilt (Liocalyon x Jeribos), successfully showed at the grand prix level with rider Guy Thomas. In 2010, Peterbilt was virtually unstoppable, winning the $150,000 Northern California Triple Crown of Show Jumping in June, in addition to his other wins and top grand prix placings.
The 2001 bay mare Dunstan Delphi (Liocalyon x Dunstan Flower Power) made a name for herself around the world with New Zealand rider Katie McVean. The duo placed sixth in the 2011 World Cup Final in Leipzig, Germany. Delphi has since been sold and continues to compete at the CSI5* level with Saudi Arabia’s Kamal Abdullah Bahamdan.
Lio’s offspring consistently inherit his good work ethic, wonderful gaits and willing temperament.
