An impressive sport record, excellent character, and impeccable pedigree make Calucci an exciting option for sport horse breeders. Calucci competed in Germany through S-level and in the U.S. through 1.45m with both professional and amateur riders. He has proven his reliability in the show ring time and again, earning top ribbons at shows such as HITS, Manchester, Devon, and WEF.
Calucci is sired by Calido I, who was ranked 1st in jumping at his Stallion Performance Test. Calido’s offspring have earned over 2.78 million Euros in sport and there are over 225 Calido offspring successful at S Level (advanced). Calucci’s grandsire, Acord II, was the winner of his Stallion Test with 146 points overall, including scores of 9 or higher for jumping ability and rideability. Acord II has sired S-level showjumpers and dressage horses. Calucci’s granddam had a strong competition career herself and her offspring have competed up to 1.6 meters. Great-grandsire Contender is legendary and his influence has been felt across all the major registries and with showjumping, eventing, and dressage breeders.
Calucci retired from sport in 2014. Following his approvals with a number of registries, he is now available for North American breeders. From Calucci’s first foal crops, we’re consistently seeing his sensible attitude, athletic type and movement, strong topline, and good bone. He should add some size and does very well with mares with some blood or refinement in their pedigree.
