Does the apple fall far from the tree? Casall Ask and some of his offspring
Wednesday, 03 July 2013
In this photo series we will take a closer look at some of the sport’s top stallions, and if the offspring bear any resemblance to their sires! Fourth to go is Casall Ask (Caretino x Lavall I), who has had huge success under Swedish rider Rolf-Göran Bengtsson winning some of the sport’s biggest Grand Prix classes.

The Casall-daughter Corcega La Silla is now seen under Alberto Michan, after showing some great potential under Rolf-Göran Bengtsson that also is the rider of her father. Operette is the name of Corcega’s mother, a Candillo-mare. Otto-Boje Schoof – who bred C.T – also bred Corcega!
Cabachon – a successful stallion himself – born in 2004 out of the mare Lady Mobilcom by Concerto. Cabachon is a Holsteiner, and had great success under Stein Endresen who produced him to top level before he was sold to Ukraine. Cabachon now competes with Ulrich Kirchhoff in the saddle.
Powerplay is a famous Casall-son. Recently sold and now seen under Eric Lamaze, this 9 year old is destined for great things! He is out of Perlmutt by Limbus, and bred by Jens Ritters. Powerplay had great success under Pius Schwizer before he moved on to his new rider.
