Pedigree profile of Rivendell Cinzano
Cinzano was Carla’s first filly, and one that is worthy of keeping for the stud. However, she is of such quality and has so much athleticism and courage that I think a great competitive career lies ahead of her first.
Cinzano is by the stallion Centadel, who has in his pedigree the combination of Cento and Landadel giving him the perfect blend of top Holsteiner bloodlines.
Olympic gold medal winner Cento won over one million euro in prize money and Landadel was simply a breeding genius.
Centadel has already demonstrated his outstanding jumping ability by winning novice horse classes up to 1.30 m level and coming third in the Bundeschampionat qualifier in Warendorf.
There are no limits to his scope, his jumping technique is close to perfect and he’s got a brilliant attitude. Centadel’s pedigree is also strongly performance-oriented in the earlier generations.
Grandsire, thoroughbred Black Sky xx, adds resilience and noble blood, while great-grandsire Gotthard has been a consistent producer of top show jumping horses. The dam’s line is directly descended from the very successful show jumper Governor, who was ridden by Philippe Lejeune and Michael Whitaker. Centadel is a winning stallion in every respect!
Cinzano’s dam, Carla is sired by Concetto Famos, who was successful under Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum in Grand Prix, Nations Cups and the Hamburg Derby. Concetto Famos now impressively continues his career in the breeding sector.
Two of his sons have been licensed: the first in Westphalia who was sold for 100,000 Euros and the second, a premium stallion at the Southern German Hengsttage, who sold for 50,000 Euros.
Among Concetto’s foals there were many show winners, also in 2008 at the shows in Donzdorf and Heiligenfeld. In 2004 a Concetto Famos filly took seventh place in the German Foal Championships in Lienen. Other offspring are now successful at medium (M*) level such as Concetto son/Hilmar Meyer, Cornetto/Joachim Heyer and the ribbon winning Bundeschampionat finalist, Con Palermo, who was one of the most expensive at the P.S.I. auction.
His Holsteiner sire Caletto I won team bronze at the 1983 EC in Hickstead/GBR under Dr. Michael Rüping. Among his 30 licensed sons you find Calvaro Z, Cambridge and Cantus.
His Danish bred dam, St.Pr.St. Sif, is a granddaughter of the trademark stallion Ramiro through Racot. In the third generation you find the Trakehner stallion Isländer who comes from the famous Isola Longa family.
Damsire Mytens xx, has recent;y become very popular and desireable in sporthorse breeding.
Mytens was born in the United States and sold to Britain as a yearling. He was very successful in training as a 2 year old and at the start of his 3 year old career until a tendon injury forced his retirement from racing. As a breeding stallion, in 1989/90 he was entered into the stallion competitions and was unique as the only Thoroughbred stallion to have completed all seven competitions including the finals.
Myten’s sire Spectacular Bid xx won 26 of his 30 starts and as a 3 year old and was unbeaten in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, but finished third in the Belmont Stakes, just missing victory in the world renowned Triple Crown. He later won the Marlboro and the Meadowlands Cup. He finished his career following an unbeaten season and 4 track records, claimed victory in the California’s Strub series, and the Washington Park Handicap, set a career earnings record, and gained the prestigious title of Horse of the Year. As recognition of his overwhelming career he joined the Hall of Fame in 1982. His pedigree can be traced back via Bold Ruler to the legendary stallions Nasrullah and Nearco.
Mytens dam’s sire Hoist the Flag is one of the more prestigious stallions in the United States.
In 1990 his first yearling fillies came up for inspection and Mytens fillies were successful at 3 provincial shows by taking the reserve champion. At the yearling show for Thoroughbreds, two Mytens colts gained a first premium, of which one was champion. Other successful offspring by Mytens include the 1999 winner of the German Young Event Championship; Magic Michael, currently competing at Prix St George and Harrison Himself, now competing in dressage at Prix St George and highly successful in combined dressage and jumping competitions. He stands at 8th place in the BHD rankings for his own winnings. In 2000 Mytens was the third placed sire for points earned by offspring in the hunter section on the NAWPN.
Mytens shows great technique and power that is successfully passed onto his progeny, along with his attractive conformation, stunning movement and jumping ability.
