Breeding and Pedigree

Canello was imported by Frank Dittmann of the Brandenburg Stud and before his untimely death in 2005, he jumped in the 1.30m showjumping classes and passed on his jumping genes and scopey talent to his progeny. Canello’s sire, Calando I, is by the legendary Cor de la Bryère. Calando I won several Grand Prix events and was awarded a team bronze medal at the 1984 Olympics. He produced 18 State Premium mares and was the dam-sire of Cathago, Canturo, Lord Z and Lord Calando. Cor de la Bryère was the Champion of his 100-day Stallion Performance test and has had an incredible influence on the Holsteiner breed, occurring in more than 70% of Holsteiner pedigrees. He also had a huge impact on the Oldenburg breed. Cor de la Bryère successfully passed his positive traits such as his incredible bascule, huge scope, jumping technique, willingness, and trainability onto his offspring.

Classical Charm’s dam, Brandenburg Sonnet is by the imported KWPN stallion, Sabastian. He was bred out of top Dutch lines and was imported to South Africa by the Brandenburg Stud. He competed as an A-grade jumper and has been responsible for breeding a number of competitive South African Warmbloods. Sabastian is out of the well known KWPN stallion Sebastiaan. On Sonnet’s dam side, we encounter the Thoroughbred stallion Lancer, bred in the USA and used in South Africa by breeder Ernie Davenport. Lancer xx sired the international A-Grades Lapdancer and Compass Line and is the dam-sire of international A-Grades Warlord and Wanganella.
