His sire Calippo (1.60m) competed at the highest level in the USA, while his dam, the half bred mare Ma Belle makes his pedigree even more exclusive.

DAM: Ma Belle (Martell (TB. - 1.60m) x Beauty 1)

She is the daughter of Martell (xx), the 1.60 show-jumping thoroughbred who was jumped internationally (1.60m) by Emile Hendrix.
