GIGOLO

Sire: GEPARD  Dam: FARINA

GIGOLO is a master at his craft. Stemming out of the stables of Paul Schockemöhle, GIGOLO had a brilliant career as a international show jumper with numerous winnings at Grand Prix in Europe and North America. GIGOLO was also ridden by Lisa Jacquin USA at the World Cup.


His sire, GEPARD, is the sire of 12 Grand Prix competitors. He also sired such stallions as ALL THE GOLD and GONZO I who continued the legend in the open division and puissance under Olympic medalist Franke Sloothaak. Boasting Gepard in their lineage are Satchmo (Isabelle Werth's GP dressage horse, Shutterfly - 3x World Cup winner with Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum. Gepard's grand sire, the legendary GOTTHARD is still the most successful Hannoverian sire today, with such approved sons as GOLDBERG, GOLD DOLLAR, GRAF GOTTHARD Z, GOLDFINGER, GOTTSCHALK, GOTTLOB, GERONIMO, GOLDCUP, GOLDAN, GOYA, GAJUS, GOLDPILZ, GOLDSTERN, GREENHORN, GOTTWALT, GOLDSTIEN, GOTTWARD, GARDESTERN I and II, GARDEHUSAR, GARDEKURASSIER, GARDEULAN I and II, GARDEOFFIZIER, GOTHA, GOLDEN MILLER, GODENHARD, GENIUS, GENEVER, GIN TONIC, GOLD FERDL, GOLDLÖWE, GOLDSCHLAGER Z, GOTTRAM and GEPARD. He also produced some outstanding sport horses like GOLDIKA ridden by Gerd Wiltfang, GONZALES 3 ridden by Lutz Merklel, GALIPOLIS ridden by Gerd Wiltfang, GONZALES 18 ridden by Georg Ahlmann, QUEENSWAY BIG Q Harvey Smith, GOLDFINK ridden by Gary Gillespie, GOLDEN GATE ridden by Otto Becker, GRAF SIENO ridden by Ulrich Meyer, GENIUS and GOYA both ridden by Fritz Ligges, GIRL ridden by Bernd Kuwertz and GERRY ridden by Jürgen Ernst to just name a few. The GOTTHARD line was prevalent in 17 horses at the 1996, Atlanta Olympics.


On his dam's side, GIGOLO goes back to ADLERFARN I, the sire of ANSWER, a World Cup winner, ridden by Hugo Simon, and also the legendary FERDINAND, who has sired more than 600 show horses which have won over 1,000,000.00 DM to date - the lion's share in jumping. This line can be traced to the World Cup show jumper WALZERKOENIG ridden by Frank Sloothaak. FERDINAND sired international competition and Olympic team horses like FERDL, a gold medal winner for Alwin Schockemoele and MEHMED a gold medal winner for Reiner Klimke. But his sons founded an important and still extremely prolific sire line. Best known is probably WENDEKREIS, followed closely by WEDEKIND and WINNETOU. This line is remarkable as the jumping abilities continue through each generation.


True to his breeding, GIGOLO is a phenomenal jumper sire that puts strong hindquarter, extraordinary athletic ability and a strong will to succeed on his progeny. All this is combined with a wonderful disposition.
