Via her dam line, No Date makes part of the Holstein performance family 5819, which has produced several approved stallions (such as Zunftiger, Tiépolo, Le Coeur, Landioso, Charriol and Casino) and international performers, such as Gettina, Toi Toi Toi and Comme Ci Comme Ca. As a breeding dam No Date produced her business card several times; for instance as dam of the international performers Warrior (this son of Cavalier is performing at international 1m40 to 1m45-level under the saddle of Gregor Terglav) and Costa Date (partnered with Mexican Juan Pablo Gaspar Albanez, this daughter of Vingino is a showjumping performer).
Louis De Cleene: “I bought No Date just recently together with my partners Maxim De Roeck and Bart De Bock. We didn’t intend to breed her, but we were convinced we couldn’t pass on this mare. We’re happy that we could bring this half sister of Bessemeinds Casino to Belgium. No Date has two descendants which jump on the international level.”
