(R Cor Ray x Rosalita/Rosario)

2012

AHHA Merit foal (only 1 point from Premium). Very friendly, cute, dark bay colt born 4-2-09.  He is very striking with his thin blaze and three white legs.  Besides being extremely correct in type and legs, his movement is very elastic and floats effortlessly through the air. 
 
In 2012, his current owner wrote, "R Corrito (aka Bentley) is now 3 1/2 years old and perfect in every way! He is now standing 16 hands. He is such a quick learner and loves to please. He is very personable too. My daughter ... thinks he is a big obnoxious puppy! He is a great horse...."

Dam:  Rosalita is a premium ISR/Oldenburg mare, and is the only 2005 foal in the US by the incredible stallion Rosario. She has elastic gaits, is the prettiest, and has the best conformation of all our '05 foals.  Her sire, Rosario is by Rubinstein I and was 2002 Oldenburg Regional Champion. At his Performance Test he achieved the highest dressage index. He stands out against the many popular Rubinstein sons because of his spectacular trot as well as his outstanding walk and canter. Rosalita's  dam, O’ She’s Gauguin, is by Opus*, and is a premium ISR/Oldenburg mare out of generations of DAD winners.  O' She's Gauguin's dam is by World Champion and Olympic Bronze medalist, Gauguin De Lully.

Rayco
(R Cor Ray x Draco/Del Piero)

20120614_dracocolt_2.jpg

 

Rayco, born 6/10/12 is a Premium ISR/Oldenburg colt with perfect angles and incredible movement.  He has a very solid build with a short back, an uphill, elastic, floaty trot, and a very cresty neck (like a mature stallion) that is very well set uphill for perfect balance. 

Rayco is a licensed breeding stallion with ISR/Oldenburg NA.

Dam: Draco  is an EMC (Elite Mare Candidate) Hanoverian mare and an ISR/Oldenburg premium mare.  She has four generations of Grand Prix sires, grand sires, and great grand sires.  Her grand dam, SPS Wakonda, produced the Oldenburg Farm approved Hanoverian stallion, Ragazzoni.  Draco moves much like her Grand Prix sire, Del Piero, who recieved a 142.65 in ridability at his stallion testing, and a 9 and 9.5 when he won the title of Bundeschampion National Five Year Old Dressage Champion, and Reserve Champion ( to Sandro Hit) in the World Young Horse Six Year Old the following year in Arnheim.  Draco's pedigree, which is hard to beat, is filled with a book of who's who in breeding:  Del Piero (Donnerhall), Matcho x, Garibaldi II, crossed with A Jungle Prince (Argentinus), Pik Koenig, Werther, and Dagobert.

Raytango Z
R Cor Ray x Rotanga Z

071412_rcorraycolt.jpg

 
Undoubtedly the best pedigree, movement, and presence of this year’s crop, this colt born 6/6/12 is ISR/Oldenburg premium, high score colt of his inspection, and definitely one of our next stallion prospects. Like his dam, he doesn’t touch the ground. If canter and walk are the most important gaits for Grand Prix, he will be there quickly just based on talent. His trot is also world class, but that canter and walk are the best we have produced. He reminds me of uncle Rashka. He may be a little small, but the pedigree suggests he should be 16+ hands.
 
Dam: Rotanga Z is a Class 1 Swedish mare by Contango out of a Robin Z/Spartan mare.  Her pedigree contains international Grand Prix winners in both dressage and jumping for at least four generations. Her sire Contango was Champion of his 100-Day Test in Medingen, Germany, in 1991.  In 1997 he achieved 7 1st Place wins at Grand Prix.  He earned 9s on temperament and trainability and won top honors in both jumping and dressage. Rotanga Z's dam is by Robin Z,  one of the best jumping sires in the world. His get have won medals in the European Championships, World Equestrian Games, and the Olympics. Robin Z was classed as the number-one stallion in the world in 1999, with 12 winning products in CSI, and he was one of the few stallions in the world to have two progeny in the showjumping finals at the Olympic Games in Sydney 2000.  Robin Z's sire Ramiro was ranked as the #1 stallion in the world on the basis international winners from 1990-95, and his dam’s sire, Almé is the #1sire of showjumping broodmares from 1990-96. Robin Z jumped Grand Prix at an international level with the Swedish team, and is also a winner in Grand Prix Dressage
