Sire Gribaldi, whose most famous son is World and European Champion Totilas, was champion of the 1995 Trakehner Licensing in Neumünster, and was later approved for KWPN, Oldenburg and the Danish Warmblood societies. At the age of four, Gribaldi won the stallion class in s’Hertogenbosch and took reserve champion honours in the Pavo Cup for four-year-old dressage horses. Under Edward Gal he had an impressive international career, winning the 2004 Zwolle International Stallion Show Kür with 73.70% and the Kür at the CHIO Rotterdam. Gribaldi was proclaimed Elite by the Trakehner society in 2003, and in 2005, based on the performance of his 6- and 7-year old offspring, the KWPN awarded him the keur predicate. In 2008 Gribaldi was proclaimed Trakehner Stallion of the Year. At the time of his death in 2010, there were 707 KWPN registered Gribaldi mares, over 300 of which had received the ster predicate. Among his other offspring are Painted Black, Sisther de Jeu, Hofrat, Siro, Unee BB, Atterupgaards Orthilia, Winnetou GEP, and more than 60 other offspring competing at grand prix.
Damsire Contango won his performance test at Medingen in 1991 on a score of 146.48 – topping both the jumping and the dressage standings. His rider in his performance test said “Everyone wants to Contango in the dam line because they have very high rideability, they can collect very easily, and they have a lot of potential for Grand Prix”. Contango himself competed successfully at Grand Prix, with more than 30 wins at the level. His best-known son is the American superstar, Ravel, who campaigned at the top level under Steffen Peters, winning the World Cup Final, the Aachen Grand Prix, and individual bronze medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the 2010 World Equestrian Games.
Zanickla’s mare line has produced a huge number of successful sport horses in both jumping and dressage, including the small tour horse Tenor (by Jazz) out of Zanickla’s grand-dam Flicka.
