Checkandino (Archived)


Chekandino--just like his
sire, Contender – the best Holstein stallion of modern times. Chekandino's career will start in Klein Roscharden. This gorgeous bay stallion has been inbred through Contender's dam, Gofine, who is also Chekandino's great granddam. This Ramiro-Ladykiller xx daughter is probably the most influential mare (line 2472) in Holstein breeding, just because she's Contender's dam. His son Checkmate/Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum was the most successful German jumper in the 2006 season and Montender was the 2005 European Champion under Marco Kutscher. The 2006 Holstein Champion Stallion was a Contender son. But before Contender war born, Gofine produced a Holstein Reserve Champion Stallion, Cornetto, and an internationally successful mare called Ulina who was ridden by Susanne Behring. Various daughters have become the dams of licensed stallions (Cassandro I and II) and international sport horses, for example, Fine Kiss/Michael Robert (FRA) and Caliskan/Candice King (USA). Chekandino's dam, Libelle, not only has half-brothers and sisters who are successful in sport, she's the daughter of the top international sire, Quidam de Revel, which brings the Almé bloodline into the pedigree. No other stallion was found as often in the pedigrees of the jumpers at the 2006 World Equestrian Games in Aachen as he was. Another Libelle son, Capanos by Corrade, was licensed in 2002.
