World Equestrian Games and European Championships Team Gold Medalist.

Eurocommerce Berlin's sire Cassini I was the trump card of the German/Dutch international rider Franke Sloothaak. The pair won, among other things, the Grand Prix at Champion Gelderland, the CSI at the national sports centre in Papendal, and the Grand Prix at CSI Modena. Cassini's sire, Capitol I, forms the genetic bottleneck where the stallion line of the legendary Cottage Son xx squeezed through to have enough space to spread out broadly for a second time throughout the breeding world. Cassini's dam, Wisma, is from the mare line, 3389, that, since Cassini I, has received more interest from the Holstein breeders. In addition to his full brother, Cassini II, this mare line has produced the licensed stallions, Caleri (sire: Calido I), Cassaro (sire: Coronado) and Lovari (sire: Lasino).

From the point of view of sport, Eurocommerce Berlin's dam, Estia, is just as interesting. Estia (out of the famous Caretino) was the international show jumping horse of both Aloïs Pollmann-Schweckhorst and Marc Wirths. Pollman-Schweckhorst rode her grandam Ostia as well. Also stemming from this mare line 890, among others, are the show jumpers Crocodile Dandy of Alison Firestone and Feodora of Fritz Fervers.

In November 1997, Eurocommerce Berlin had a good test as an unlicensed stallion in Adelheidsdorf; in the jumping index he scored 133.21 points and thus, in this section, came in second place just behind Acorado who has since also become equally famous. After successful licensings and approvals in both Holland (March 2003) and, under his former name Caspar, in Oldenburg (January 2005), Eurocommerce Berlin, ridden by Gerco Schröder, established an international reputation by contributing to the Dutch team golds both in the 2006 World Equestrian Games (Aachen), and at the 2007 European Championships (Mannheim). The WEG gold was sufficient to give him a permanent license and approval by his stud book of birth, Holstein.
