Quintero Ask’s bloodline is an interesting blend of the stallions Quidam de Revel, Caletto II, Calando I, Farnese and Ladykiller/TB. Quintero’s sire Quantum is by Quidam de Revel, a highly successful performer himself and one of the most exceptional sport stallions in the French breeding program. His sire Jalisco, as well as his paternal 2nd sire Almé, rank among the most prominent jumper sires in France.
Quintero Ask comes from the highly respected line 569. His dam, state premium mare Ibara, is by Chamonix, a successful stallion in the USA. Ibara’s 2nd sire Calando I has a reputation for his fighting spirit and performance attitude and has proved himself on the international show jumping circuit. Considering the achievements of his offspring like Careful with Eveline Blaton, Cunjeo with Karen Cudmore, or Calaro with Andreas Ripke or Cagliostro with Niklas Arvidsson, Calando I is rated as a particularly highclass jumper sire.
Quintero Ask is the first licensed Quantum son. Big-framed with an extremely powerful back he is considered as one of the Holsteiner Verband’s most talented jumpers. The athletic stallion stands out due to the carefulness, power and overall quality of his jump.

After the licensed Quintero son Quint was knocked down at 200.000 euros to a buyer from Saudi Arabia in the 2005 Neumünster auction, Que Guapo, another exceptional jumping stallion by Quintero realized the amazing sum of 250.000 euros at the same venue in 2007. 2008 saw Quintero’s son Quarz licensed for breeding, in 2009 his son Quick Fire became 2nd reserve champion of the Neumünster approval.
Quintero already boasts numerous offspring successfully shown to S level. His daugher Quibell in particular is rated as one of Germany’s best up-and-coming horses under her rider Henrik von Eckermann.
Breitling LS, 8-year-old licensed Quintero son out of an Accord II dam was sold to a sponsor of US American Beezie Madden for a king’s ransom.
Mares To Use With This Stallion
Heavier mares who need refinement, through to middle weight mares who lack sparkle. He is well noted for mares with weak backs, and those who are a little cold blooded. He already has fine examples from Caretino and Cento mares.
