Does the apple fall far from the tree? Indoctro and some of his offspring

Wednesday, 29 March 2017
Does the apple fall far from the tree

Indoctro (Capitol I x Caletto II) was born in 1990, and 27 years later he is known as one of the world's best sires. For over a decade, Indoctro has had offspring jumping at the very top of the sport – making him a constant precense on the WBFSH Rolex Sire Ranking. Indoctro is the sire of licensed sons such as No Limit, Nassau, Montreal, Maserati, Orame, Sheraton and Wittinger – themselves successful producers of international jumpers for the top sport.

In the next part of our series 'Does the apple fall far from the tree?' we look at some of Indoctro's most famous daughters and sons in the sport today.

VDL Groep Arera C is perhaps one of the most successful Indoctro-offspring in the sport today, and jumps at international five-star Grand Prix level with Maikel van der Vleuten. With the Dutch rider in the saddle, the 12-year-old KWPN-mare has top-three finishes from big five-star classes in Doha, La Coruna, Rome, Rotterdam, Miami and Gothenburg to mention some - as well as a victory from the CSI4* Grand Prix of Amsterdam back in 2016.
