In Memoriam: Carthago Sun I


We are sad to announce the passing of Carthago Sun I, who has been a part of Warmblood Stallions of North America's print magazine and also online for many years. He died in November of this year. No frozen semen is available, but his Stallion Profile will remain on WarmbloodStallionsNA.com as a memorial. Our condolences to his people.

Carthago Sun I (Sunny for short) was Champion of the first CWHBA Stallion Performance Test in 2000. His pedigree combines the proven Holsteiner performance bloodlines of Capitol / Cor de la Bryere / Landgraf I. Sunny placed in 1.30 m classes at Spruce Meadows and Rocky Mountain Show Jumping.

Carthago Sun will live on in his offspring.

PROGENY: Cera 99 and Cita 2000 (dam COLIBRI by Caletto I) were both Champions of their respective Performance Field Tests in 2002 and 2003. CITA was sold and exported to Germany, where she became one of the top 5 & 6 year-old jumpers. Full-brother CONDOR II has been successfully jumping 1.45 m courses at Spruce Meadows. Patagonia by YAVARI XX out of Pandora's Charm (Carthago Sun I x Caletto I) was declared Western Champion of 4-year-old jumpers in the Jump Canada Finals in August 2009.

CATALINE (Carthago Sun I x Power/Pilot) and her junior rider Tayah Sobie have been highly successful in winning 1.20/1.30 m classes at Spruce Meadows and Thermal consistently since 2013.

Taya and Cataline won the Joe Selinger Memorial Cup at St. George's Derby Day on July 14, 2016. A feat she repeated on July 20, 2017!

P-CALIDA by Calido (half-sister to Sunny), was sent to Germany for training. She excelled in 1.35 m Grands Prix under a junior rider and successfully continues her jumping career in Florida, USA.

Their dam DAVOS is a product of the Magens family's Stamm (stem) 8769, known as the 'BUEHNE-STAMM'. Her dam Talenta is full-sister to Suehne who produced COME ON by Cantus(Princess Haja), FLEUR by Romino (MichaelWhitaker) and NOBLESS M (Pius Schwizer).

The new kids on the block by Carthago Sun I are: J.E.S. QUITO (born 2007) out of Quinta by QUINAR - numerous placings in Grands Prix, 5th place $35k Apollo Jets GP in Gulfport, MS 2016; COOKACHOO, born 2010 (bred by St.George's Stables, Calgary) - 3rd place 5yo, qualified for the Western Young Jumper Championships; J.E.S. CIBELLE, born 2011 (full-sister to CERA 99 and CITA 2000) - Champion in the 1.0m jumpers at her first horse show in Scottsdale, AZ as a 4yo 2015. Clear and blue ribbon winner in her first two 5-year-old young jumper championship qualifying classes in Gulfport, MS 2016. Latest: CIBELLE won the 6 yo YJC qualifier at Hippico Santa Fe on August 4, 2017! Quito, Cookachoo and Cibelle are ridden by Nicki Wilcox of Parker, Colorado, USA. CLASSIC (3 days older than Cibelle) won the 1.20 m Derby at Rocky Mountain Show Jumping's Classic II, Calgary August 2017.
