La Rocket's grandsire, Lavall II, produced some very good competition horses, including Kassandra (ridden by Rolf Göran Bengtsson) and Suncal's King (with Joie Gatlin in the irons). His son and La Rocket's sire, Larimar, is described by the Verband as being a modern type with good movement, and a compelling jumper with huge scope and beautiful conformation. The first foal crops of Larimar have revealed his great genetic potential as a progenitor of incomparable performance horses. With the influence of successful thoroughbreds evident in both his sire and dam lines, Larimar contributes remarkable speed and refinement to his offspring.

La Rocket's dam, Ma Cherie, is the daughter of Calido I, one of today's most important sires worldwide. His lineage includes Cor de la Bryere, Cottage Son, Ramzes and Anblick, all instrumental stallions in the development of the modern Holsteiner sporthorse. Calido I finished on top of the jumping rankings at his stallion performance test and went on to win more than 20 young horse classes over fences. His position as an influential sire is cemented by his progeny's successes, which include the German Championship 2006 and 2007 (Coupe de Couer) and the Hong Kong Olympics (California, Kayak and Nobless M) among many others.

Veritas, is by the impressive Carpaccio. Ranked #1 in the breeding index with Coriano, he was the Champion of his 100-Day Test, won his class at the Bundeschampionart and produced the Grand Champion stallion at the 2004 approvals, Chico's Boy.

Carpaccio's sire, Caretino, is one of those outstanding sires that produces both movement and jump in one beautiful package. He fathered numerous state premium mares and at least eighteen approved stallion sons. His sons Carpaccio, Cockney and Cheenook are considered some of the best-moving stallions produced in Holstein. Caretino is by the fantastic sire Caletto II, who won the 1980 stallion approvals and is considered to be the embodiment of the Holsteiner breeding goal.
