About - Luigi is a modern, blood-type stallion descended from a superb pedigree packed with grand prix horses. He is one of Belgium's most popular stallions, improving the quality, type, and jump in his offspring.
Performance - Luigi is successful up to 1.45m level already, winning the 7-year-old final in Beerveld, and picking up many top-10 placings at international level in 2017 and 2018. He is now competing very well having made his debut in the Grand Prix in January receiving a large prize fund, having gone up the levels in 2019 he is showing his talents in numerous high class shows.
Sire - Sire Catoki is Philip Weishaput's World Cup horse, winning the Bordeaux leg of the series in February 2011. He was reserve Bundeschampion in 2003, Weser-Ems state champion and won the GP of Rastede in 2006. He has since been passed to young Danish rider Emil Hallundbaek, who piloted him to 5th at the FEI European Junior Championships 2015 and placed many times at 1.50m, a testament to his rideability and talent. Catoki has several offspring jumping at grand prix, including the licensed son Carrico. Catoki's sire Cambridge was also the sire of the Chambertin, who in turn sired the late, great, Chacco-Blue.
Damline - Luigi's dam Eluna, whose dam Aluna jumped at grand prix level herself, is a daughter of the Capitol son, Calato, who sired more than 25 international grand prix horses and 30 licensed sons. Calato combines three outstanding stallions in Capitol, Landgraf, and Cor de la Bryere, and descends from the same damline as Michael van der Vleuten's great stallion, Verdi TN, in addition to Bubalu, and more than 25 other grand prix jumpers.
