2016 Contefino out of Brazil

Sire: Contefino

Sire of Dam: Love Affair
Foal Date: 2016
Price Class: A


Brazil is an enchanting mare who embodies many of her sire's best qualities. In 2011, Brazil was awarded reserve site champion with "48" bonits. Her elegant type earned her a coveted "8", while her long expressive stride at the trot and cadenced canter both earned her "7"s. She was equally impressive in the free jump chute with a tight front end and extraordinary scope. It is easy to see why she was one of the top scoring mares in the country. In June of last year, Brazil gave birth to a stunning filly by Boritas.

Brazil's sire is Love Affair, who is appreciated for his ability to pass on his stunning movement, great jumping technique and incomparable temperament. His foals are widely sought after by both amateur and professional competitors. Her dam's sire, Merano, has produced multiple international competitors and is an important son of Merlin, who was judged best Holsteiner Stallion in Germany in 1970.

Contefino received the highest score at the 2004 AHHA Stallion Approval with a "10" for jumping ability and "10" for technique. With three good gaits, he was also given a "9" for his canter. Contefino was sold to Germany at age 6 and quickly gained a reputation for his remarkable jumping ability, competing in the 1.60m across the continent. An injury, however, led to his retirement from the show ring and Contefino returned to the United States to stand at stud. Contefino has already proven himself to be a phenomenal sire, having produced many top horses and 3 approved stallions within a relatively small number of offspring.

Contefino is by Contender, Holstein's leading sire. He was champion of his stallion performance test and has dominated the Federal National breeding rating for many years. Contefino's dam is sired by Corofino, who demonstrated his outstanding jumping talent by scoring a perfect "10" during his stallion performance test.
