About - Escalito is a new stallion for 2018, and brings in exciting fresh bloodlines for the stallion roster. He was the 'Reservesieger' and premium stallion at the 2017 Westfalien licensing, and sold for €185,000 to Klosterhof Medingen. He has since also been licensed for Oldenburg. Like his sire, he is a powerful stallion with a lot of expression and an exceptional trot. He has a strong, quick hindleg thanks to his jumping-bred damline and is free of Donnerhall blood.
Sire - Escolar has been in the spotlight with Hubertus Schmidt recently, and was announced as the joint-leader of the German Breeding Value Index at the end of 2017, reflecting his success as both a stallion and a competitor. Escolar was Westfalien champion and double Bundeschampion, scoring a 10.0 for his trot and canter and a score of 19.5 out of 20 from the two test riders as a three-year-old. Escolar was runner-up in the final of the 2017 Nürnberger Burg Pokal for developing PSG horses, and then went on to claim the Siegerpreis for a superb freestyle at the same show. Escolar has consistently scored +70% on his international appearances at small tour level.
Escolar's early offspring have been much sought after, and he provided the reserve champion mare at the 2017 German Mare & Foal Championships, plus the third-placed mare at the Westfalien Mare Championships. His daughter Eyleen was bronze medallist at the 2017 Bundeschampionat and the price highlight of the 2017 Westfalien Auction, selling for €150,000.
His sire Estobar was the champion of the 2006 Westfalien licensing, selling for €535,000, and competed up to grand prix. He is the full brother of licensed stallions Eichendorff and Ehrendorf, who also both competed at the highest level. Their sire Ehrentusch was famed for his temperament and rideability and also produced the state stud stallion Ehrentanz. Ehrentusch was the champion of the 1987 stallion performance test at Warendorf, finishing first in both the dressage and jumping sections. At the 1989 DLG show in Frankfurt, he was reserve only to Weltmeyer. The 'E' Line has produced a number of successful sport horses in both jumping and dressage, and Ehrentusch's full brother was Klaus Balkenhol’s international dressage star, Ehrengold.
Damline - Escalito's grand-dam is the full-sister of international grand prix jumping horses BB Cayenne and Miss Saigon I. The damline has produced, among others, the licensed stallions Calesco and Casenius (by Colman), Contrache and Conraldik (by Contender), Lavarino (by Lavall I), and the international show jumpers Gran Corrado and Constante.
