Don Martillo’s mother line is solid with success: His dam, “Black Pearl” comes from the famous Verden line of Shocolata, who with her daughters were the winning family in Verden and won the 1c-Prize at the 1990 Bundeschampionats! Shocolata provided two licensed stallions and several elite auction foals. Grandmother Mona Lisa was the winner of the competition in 1996 and 1997 in Sottrum and 1998 in Tarmstedt. At the Louis-Wiegel show, she was the best of the year and at the Ratje-Niebuhr show she won the 1c place. In 2002 and 2004 she and her daughters Wendy For Ever, Don Martillo’s grandmother, and Winergy became the Elitesiegerfamilie. Grandmother Wendy For Ever brought the Royal Ascot dressage horse with Royal Highness, who won over 75% of the Burgpokalqualifikation in Verden in 2015 with Ann-Christin Wienkamp.
