About - Indoctro is a living legend and is among the world's best sires. His offspring achieve successes at the highest level. At the Olympic Games in 2008, three horses by Indoctro attended: VDL Orestus, Don Porfirio and Picolien Zeldenrust. In Holland he is known as VDL Indoctro, while in Germany, following the Holstein naming custom, he is C-Indoctro. By any name he is one of the world’s most successful jumping sires. The 27-year-old is still available chilled in 2017, with excellent semen quality and very high rates of pregnancy.
Performance - After being Champion of his stallion test, Indoctro went on to a successful international jumping career with Ulrich Kirchhoff. His main value has been as a breeding stallion, standing as one of VDL's foundation sires. Indoctro has been such a success as a sire for the KWPN studbook, that at the age of 16 he received the title: ‘Preferent’.
Sire - Indoctro is another hugely successful Capitol I/Caletto II cross. Capitol I is a real rarity in the ranks of Holsteiner stallions – a showjumping sire, whose name begins with ‘C’, who is not related to Cor de la Bryère! Nor for that matter, is he related to that other pillar of Holsteiner breeding, Landgraf, which means he adds variety into any breeding programme founded on those lines. Capitol's grand-dam Vase was champion mare of Holstein, while her full-brother, Roman, topped the German showjumping standings for two years running with Hans-Gunter Winkler. Vase’s daughter, Folia, by Maximus (himself an advanced showjumper), foaled five stallions: Latus I and II (both by Landgraf), and then Capitol. Capitol was by Capitano, who is by Corporal out of Retina. Retina won the Hamburg Derby with Fritz Thiedemann in the saddle.
Damline - His dam Vanessa VII also produced two full brothers, C-Indoctro II and the Olympic showjumper, National Guard, ridden by Fahad Al Geaid. Damsire Caletto I is a son of the great Cor De La Bryère, while third sire Calypso was also a foundation Holstein stallion.
Progeny - Indoctro's offspring speak for themselves. Some famous offspring include Casadora, Black Ice, Maddock, Nassau, Orame, Youp, VDL Masseratie, Mustique, Minka's Diamond, Nike, Nadia, Patrick VII, Kassandre Erger Kerbo, Wittinger, Sheraton, Sr. Doctro, Tavanta, Tyson, Ulano Ultimate, and Induction. At championships worldwide there are always Indoctro sons and daughters competing - at the 2014 World Equestrian Games, Indoctro was represented five times, including by Imothep, who finished 12th individually. Always There won the World Championship for five-year-old jumpers and was also the Dutch Jumping Champion. Van Schijndel's Concrex Owaola became Dutch Eventing Champion and Zirano V was Dutch Jumping Champion. Vedor was World Champion 6 year old jumpers and Ubalia became World Champion by the 7 year olds. Boss VDL and VDL Orame became in their years Champion of the KWPN Stallion approvals. Ultimate was Dutch Jumping Champion of the 4 year olds. Indoctro is the leading sire in the USEF ranking of jumping horses, while in 2016 he is ranked 18th on the WBFSH Sire Rankings.
