DAM SIRE: Verdi
This is a statuesque mare with an exceptional temperament. She is showing scope, cadence and a rhythmic, uphill canter; just starting her career.
Cicero, jumped at the highest level himself before his career focussed on stud duties. Cicero offspring are know for their exceptional temperaments, powerful hindquarters and scope. His sire, Carthago, has been a legendary competitor at 2 Olympics, winning Nations cups and a very influential sire with over 180 offspring jumping at Grand Prix level. Grandsire, Randel Z, sired many Grand Prix horses, perhaps the best known being Beezie Madden’s Cortes, medal winner at Rio Olympics, WEG, and many Nations Cups for team USA.
Dam, Miss Platiere, a World Cup qualifier winner herself, is off the best French bloodlines through Narcos II and Papillon Rouge. Refined and elegant, sharp and clean, she is the perfect complement to Cicero’s power, temperament and scope.
Cicada, like most Cicero progeny, has a willingness to perform and plenty of scope. This year we are expecting a Chacoon Blue from this lovely mare.
