About - Stalypso is a really beautiful model of a stallion, who is among the best Stakkato sons available. After a stunning performance test, the judges said "this stallion will make gold horses". He jumps with perfect technique, and - unusually for a jumping stallion - has a particularly good trot in addition to an excellent canter.
Performance - Stalypso has been a top-class horse since the very beginning. As a foal, he was Champion Colt at Ahnsen before taking the Supreme Championship at the Schillerslage regional show in July of the same year. At his performance test, he scored an amazing 9.88 for his jumping technique. He has combined a busy breeding career with an international sport career, winning the Dortmund Grand Prix and placing fouth and fifth at the CSI4* show at Hagen.
Sire - Stakkato had a successful international career under Eva Bitter until the age of 18, and he is eye-catching as a sire of international showjumpers. He jumped on the Nations Cup team at St. Gallen and was placed and recorded clear rounds in numerous classes at 1.40m-1.50m level. Stakkato's sire Spartan adds the sought-after blood of foundation sire Gottard, while his damsire Pygmalion was one of four licensed sons from the same mare. Stakkato is the sire of more than 40 grand prix jumping horses and almost 100 licensed sons, and was the top-ranked sire of the German FN for twelve consecutive seasons (2001-2012).
Damline - Dam Caracalla scored a 9.0 for jumping in her performance test, and has a full sister who has also produced a licensed Stakkato son, named Spaceman. Stalypso's full brother Streamer is successful up to medium level, as are two full sisters. Caracalla is a daughter of Calypso II, a hugely successful stallion who jumped to 1.45m level himself and has sired numerous grand prix offspring, including the licensed son Contendor.
Progeny - In 2006, Stalypso was awarded the Oldenburg Hauptprämie in recognition of his outstanding first foal crop. He has more than 15 licensed sons, including Stakkadero, Stakkino, Sugar Ray, Superior, Samurai 501, Stanton (premium stallion in Verden 2009), Sakrileg (best jumper stallion at the Southern German licensing in Munich 2010, winner of 30-day test in Munich), Stationär, Straviaty (Reserve Champion at the 2009 Oldenburg licensing, Hauptprämie winner 2011) and Stylist (champion of the jumping stallions in Mecklenburg).
Numerous daughters have been awarded the state premium. The German FN's predicted breeding value statistics rank him as one of the most versatile sires in Germany, with a respectable 120 points in dressage and an incredible 150 points in jumping, making him an excellent choice for breeders looking for a jumping stallion who is still an attractive, good-moving horse with all-round sporting ability.
