KWPN – Hannover – Holstein – Oldenburg – Zangersheide
New, yet proven. That precisely describes Canturano Z. A very appealing appearance, athletic ability and showjumping manners by the book, we have seen it before and it turns out to be hereditary. Already 60 international products, often under top-class riders, are causing sensation at international level. For example, Georgina Bloomberg (Cliff Z), Werner Muff (Daimler), Gerfried Puck (Davey) and Holger Hetzel (Dalli Dalli) are jumping with their Canturano’s at five star level. And the list is still growing with rising stars such as Elan SFN ridden by Vincent Voorn, Dantino under Rene Tebbel and Dokyra Fortuna brought out by Jeroen Dubbeldam at 1.45m level. We won’t keep it a secret that his products sell very well. Don Juan VL went on record for being sold at 325,000 euro as auction topper at the Hendrix brothers and Holger Hetzel went even farther by selling Dalli Dalli 6 for 360,000 euro at his auction. With the Olympic genes of sire Canturo (Bernardo Alves) and the positive experience of Studbook Zangersheide with dam’s sire Coriano Z (Judy Ann Melchior) and its self-bred Ahorn Z in the pedigree, there is only one conclusion: with marks like those you always pass.
The dam’s stock 2067 then goes further back via Ahorn Z – Fontan – Kadett – Goldschmid -Favus – Famos – Ordner – Racker – abitus (Hann). Kadett (sire: Kalif) and Racker (sire: Amurath) provide an eastern tint. A sister of grandam Zalme produced Hugo Simon’s derby winner Gondoso. Stock 2067 also produced the international show jumpers Lausbub and Leonardo of Franke Sloothaak, Leonidas of Lars Nieberg and Lordon of Luciana Diniz. A year after being licensed, Eurocommerce Canturano did his 70-day test in Adelheidsdorf where, with a total index of 131.86, he finished as “HLP-Sieger” out of 32 class mates. His jumping index was also good for first place (135.20 points). His dressage index was a little lower: 118.74 points- with which he nevertheless brought him a seventh place in this section. In 2007, after completing his 30-day test, he was licensed by the KWPN with an 8.5 for take-off, an 8 for technique, a 9 for scope and an 8.5 for aptitude in his report.
