Pedigree Details

Sire:  VDL Douglas   (Darco  -  Capital I  -  Renomee Z)

Douglas  is a son of Darco, one of the best sport stallions.  With Ludo Phillpaerts Darco was sixth at the WC at Stockholm 1990 and seventh at the Olympic Games in Barcelona 1992.  Darco also consistently passed his show jumping talent on to his offspring.  With more than forty products performing at Grand Prix level, Darco belongs to one of the most influential progenitors of his age.  On his dam’s side Douglas carries the valuable Holsteiner show jumping blood of Capitol 1 who also is one of the most prominent sires from the past decades.  From a relatively small number of offspring Capitol 1 produced a long series of international show jumping horses such as the stallions Carthago, Cassini 1, Carolus 11, Capriol, Cento, Celano, Cardento, Dutch Capitol and Calato.  The dam’s line of Douglas goes back via the blood of Renomee Z to the mare Pantella (Ladykiller xx) from the lineage 318d2.  The licensed stallions Lido, Lehar and Leonardo are full brothers of Pantella.   This wide branched family also produced, for instance, Corofino I – II, Mill Reef, Camiros and Coriano.  Douglas caused sensation himself in the international show jumping ring under the Irish rider Conor Swail.
