Introducing internationally experienced Jac'Potes, 2003 16.3h holsteiner stallion by Caretino/Corrado I/Lord. Retiring from sport at the age of 18 after a career up to 1.60m, Jac'Potes is a welcome addition for North American breeders. Jac'Potes brings to the table proven performance, proven bloodlines, and proven offspring. Sire, Caretino, was one of the top stallions in Holstein, having produced greats such as Casall and Cristallo. Jac'Potes dam sire, Corrado I, is the sire of Clinton and gold medal WEG competitor Corradina. Also on the dam side is Lord, sire of countless top competitors including World Championships and Olympics. Jac'Potes dam, Harada, produced 2 offspring that competed to 1.60m (Jac'Potes and Ubris), 1.45m (Riga I) and 1.30m (Cisco, approved stallion).
In performance, Jac'potes is unmatched. In France, he was described as "Very beautiful, very good gallop, very respectful, big means and a golden character." He was one of the top young horses in France, including 3rd in the 5-year-old championship at the CIR du Lion d'Angers. He then went on to be partnered with Jan Tops (olympic gold medal rider) and Doda de Miranda (Olympic medalist). He claimed top placings, up to CSI5* level, at events such as Nations Cups, CSIO Lisbon, Stephex Masters, CSI Maubeuge, and Wellington FL. As a testament to his exceptional temperament, towards the end of his career he has been successful in the amateur jumpers and even the hunters!
Jac'Potes is proving to be not only exceptional in the show ring, but also in the breeding shed. With limited breeding prior to his import, he has produced several offspring with competition records of 1.35m-1.60m. Most notably Tescari'jac, with a record to 1.60m. Of the 13 offspring listed on hippomundo, all of them have a record of at least 1.20m, including 5 at 1.40m-1.45m and 5 1.30m-1.35m. Additionally, Jac'Potes has also produced an approved stallion; Tostaky de la Loue.

Best Regards aka Cumthago C was approved during the BWP Stallion Selection in 2011. He is one of the few Approved Stallions of the legendary Cumano. He jumped up to 1.45m in Belgium before being exported to the U.S. where he successfully competed and garnered several wins in the High Performance Conformation Hunter classes and international derbies. His dam also produced two other approved stallions, Guintero C (Quintero ASK) BWP & Izar C (Vigo d’Arsouilles) AES.
Cumano was a phenomenon, in sport as well as in breeding. He was World champion, vice European champion, won the Grand Prix of Calgary and Lummen & he participated two times at the Olympic Games. He was also 3rd in the Grand Prix in Aachen. In the breeding he has several Grand Prix horses even though he had only a small production, like Amaryllis, Coquet vd Potaarde, Claudy Bay, Chivas, Celena, Cayenne & Cassira.
Cumthago’s mother, My Girl III, is a daughter La Zarras, one of the most important sons of Landgraf I. His grandmother, Diamond Lady, is a state premium mare, who is the full sister of the famous sire Lord Calando, and so she’s also the half sister of the legendary Carthago Z. Carthago Z competed successfully at the Olympic games of Atlanta and Sydney as well as the European championship in Hickstead. But Carthago is even more famous as a sire of multiple GP winners.
