1995, Darkbay, 168 cm, Oldenburg
A rarity in colour, pedigree and talent. Canturo is the last approved son of never forgotten jumping sire Cantus. He brings the internationally desired line 162 to Klein Offenseth. Via maternal sire Calando I, German champion 1984 with Karsten Huck, and the valuably bred Landego the thoroughbreds Pannier xx and Manometer xx come into his pedigree.
As a five- and six-year old Canturo competed in the Bundeschampionate finals. Aged seven he reached the finals at the world championship for young horses in Zangersheide. At eight, he won and placed at CSI Wien, in Rome, La Baule and the Swedish Derby of Falsterbo. At nine, Canturo won in Spruce Meadows and was nominated for the Olympic Games. In 2004, among his first crop, he presented the winning sire Canto for the Holstein stallion licensing. In 2005, Canturo won, among others, the Aachen „Prix of Europe“. His son Canturano I proves his fathers’ hereditary strength by clearly winning the 70-daytest in Adelheidsdorf.
Canturo´s integrated breeding value is established at 144 points and he already has 13 approved sons and 25 offspring competing at advanced.
