Casino Grande is a proud product of our own sire Casino Berlin, in combination with our top damline Besinda, that also produced Stedinger and Donninger.
With this background, and in addition to his superior jumping ability, great manners and very modern gaits, he embodies the next level of breeding stallion.
He was premium stallion and second place finisher of his licensing in 2014. The year after, in 2015, he finished his 30-days-test with a final jumping score of 9.25, with 10.0 for his jumping ability as well as his canter, and 9.25 for his rideability.
In 2016, he competed in youngster classes for the first time. His outstanding quality was rewarded with multiple victories. Additionally, he received the 1b Main Premium for his outstanding first crop and his great show performance.
In 2017, Casino Grande finished his stallion test in second place, right behind his barn-mate, Ogano. His final score was 9.03, he received a 9.5 for his canter and a 9.0 for his scope and rideability. Additionally that year he qualified twice for the “Bundeschampionat”.
In 2018, Casino Grande placed in jumping classes up to 1,35m. He qualified for the “Bundeschampionat” for the six-year-old jumpers. Casino Grande convinced in both qualifications at the Bundeschampionat and qualified for the big final, in which he was placed. He also qualified for the FEI World Breeding championchips for young horses.
In 2019 Casino Grande placed several times in 1.40m classes for example in Höven, Rastede and at the CSI Verden. As a result of his constant performances, he qualified for the World Breeding Jumping Championships for Young Horses in Lanaken, where he finished ninth in the small final.
Gerd Sosath says about Casino Grande: “I am very proud. With this stallion, I achieved my personal breeding goal .Like his father, Casino Berlin, Casino Grande still needs some time. We do a lot of gymnastics with him and only use him specifically at tournaments. I’m sure that this timing will pay off later and that he will be a great Grand Prix horse. His handsome and big moving foals have already shown that he is an outstanding sire. With his first agegroup at the licensing and the two stallions licensed by OS, he confirmed our high expectations”.
