Her dam Optimistic NZPH has produced numerous foals over the years for both NZPH themselves, and her subsequent owner before Rose Flats purchased her in 2015.

Sire: Cartell GNZ

Based at Goldengrove Stud Cartell GNZ’s foals exceeded all the studs expectations. They are all tall with fantastic natures and movement to die for. His tall modern type is something quite special as Cartell GNZ carries the most influential sire lines in Holstein – the great Casall Ask and Corrado 1 (winner of Aachen).

This new young stallion offers the breeders of New Zealand a unique opportunity to breed power, scope, athleticism, quickness and stamina into your mares. Cartell is a beautiful stallion with extreme quality in both type, scope and jump.

He possesses a very easy disposition with an outstanding canter. Grandsire Caretino is the top ranked Holsteiner stallion in the world as of November 2012. Grandsire Corrado 1 is the sire of top horses: Clinton, Corradina, Indorrado.

Sire’s Sire: Casall Ask

Casall Ask is arguably one of the most famous sires of a generation, named Sire of the Century. Casall Ask started out on the international circuit with Sweden’s Rolf Goran Bengtsson in 2008 and has had a prolific career with the rider ever since. Wins include the 2009 Rikstoto Trophy, 2010 Rotterdam Grand Prix and Falsterbo Grand Prix, 2011 GCT Hamburg Grand Prix and Lyon FEI World Cup Qualifier, and 4th individually in the 2013 European Championships. Casall represented Sweden in the 2012 London Olympic Games and qualified for three consecutive FEI World Cup Finals in 2011/12/13, finishing in the top six in 2012 and 2013.

Dam Sire: Fetiche du Pas

French stallion Fetiche du Pas. He is a combination Le Tot de Semilly and Almé, along with two Thoroughbreds, Night & Day and Furioso. Fetiche was himself the French Six Year old champion, and he was starting a very promising career which unfortunately ended early due to a car accident.

“He gives his progeny a lot of energy – he is twice Warmblood but I would not be surprised if he sires a good Three Day eventer, his stock are willing horses, they want to go.” – Arnaud Evain
