Glock's Toto Jr. is the most talented son of the world renowned Totilas, also with a charming way, was long-listed for the Dutch Olympic team under Edward Gal. Stems from a very strong dam-line as well from Olympic Desperados x Rotspon. Desperados produced several top world competitors and International GP offspring. Desperados' sire, De Niro, had 5 offspring in the Rio Olympics alone! Totilas' sire, Gribaldi, the big black Trakehner stallion, produced numerous Int'l GP horses including Anky Van Grunsven's Painted Black, and numerous high-selling auction horses in Denmark, Germany, Holland, etc., and is one of the most sought-after sires in the world.
One of the main reason I picked Karat is his very strong deep damline from Johnson x Gribaldi. Johnson is famous as being one of the top sons of Jazz. TOP ranking Sire in the WBFSH for many years, Jazz sired 50 licensed sons, and over 100 offspring to Grand Prix. Sire of Olivi, Don Olymbrio, Don Juan de Hus, Wynton, Olympic Parcival, Westpoint, Tango to name a few. Jazz pushes thru so many attributes, pure talent, beauty, rideability, and champion after champion. Damsire Flemmingh, is famous for producing the grand prix dressage horses and super-sires Krack C and Lingh. When mixed with Jazz blood on the damline, Krack C has produced the stallions Vivaldi and Zhivago, already highly sought-after sires themselves.
Johnson's offspring are very impressive. Often more blood in type than their sire, they all inherit his fantastic, easy temperament and willingness to work. He is the sire of Bretton Woods, hailed as the "new Totilas" in Holland, Jack Jones, and more than 25 other licensed sons in a relatively limited breeding career. In the fall of 2012 the Johnson x Wolkentanz II stallion Jack Sparrow was run-away favourite in the 4 yr old stallion series. Several of his offspring are now competing at grand prix and Johnson is carving a reputation as an outstanding sire.
Karat's grand dam from Gribaldi has herself produced some GP offspring as well.
