De moeder van Chellsini ZCassira’s sire, Cassini I, jumped successfully up to M class in partnership with Bo Kristoffersen. Cassini I broke through at international level under the saddle of Franke Sloothaak. This duo collected many victories and honourable placings in Grand Prix, Nations’ Cups and World Cup classes during challenging tournaments such as Aachen, Hickstead, Rome, Göteborg, London and Rotterdam. Cassini I has a great reputation as a supplier of best showjumpers. Two of his descendants participated at the Athens Olympic Games (2004): Cumano (Jos Lansink) and Olympic (Steve Guerdat). During the Olympic Games of Beijing (2008) the Cassini I son, Carlsson vom Dach (partnered with Will Simpson), was a member of the golden team. During the most recent Games (London 2012) the Cassini I daughter, Rosalia La Silla (under Mexican Alberto Michan Halbinger), was the most successful Holstein showjumper.
In Cassira’s dam line we meet a mix of top French and German performance blood. Molli I, Cassira’s dam, is a daughter of Quidam de Revel out of E-Ramira (by Ramiro Z). Molli I produced several international showjumpers, such as Sidney VIII and Chewing Gum 3. Sidney VIII (by Carry) and Steve Guerdat ended for instance third in La Coruna (5*, 1m60, 2012), second in London Olympia (GCT, 5*, 1m50, 2013), third in Lausanne (GCT, 5*, 1m50, 2013), third in Bordeaux (5*, 1m50, 2014) and first in Doha (5*, 1m45, 2014). For several years Chewing Gum 3 (by Carolus I) and her rider Shalva Gachechiladze have been performing successfully in international showjumping classes from 1m45 to 1m60.
In the meantime, Cassira also proofed that good blood never lies. In combination with Chellano Z she gave birth to Chellsini Z (2009). Chellsini Z is an approved stallion with Studbook Zangersheide. In 2014, Chellsini II Z, a full brother to Chellsini Z, became the chart topper of the first Zangersheide Online Auction.
Axel Verlooy: “With Cassira Z I offer for sale the mother of the popular young breeding stallion Chellsini Z of Studfarm Zangersheide. I bought her from Zangersheide before her son was approved for breeding. Why I’m selling? I have a sport and business stable. I want to breed less again. I think it’s a stroke of luck for other breeders, ‘cause where do you find a mare by Cassini I x Quidam de Revel nowadays?”
