Capone 1 is owned by Corinne Super since 2005. Capone 1 is a Holsteiner stallion that competes at the International Grand Prix FEI level in show jumping.
Capone is a 16.1hh black bay stallion by the famous stallion Contender. Capone 1 competes at the International Grand Prix level and has won numerous Grand Prix competitions.
Capone was awarded his Elite status in Germany in January 2012 by the BWP. He has many grand prix wins under his belt including the performance CN at Spruce Meadows in 2011. Capone 1 is a stallion with a heart of gold. Everyone that has had the pleasure of meeting him are awed by his kind nature and wisdom. He consistently passes his amazing athletic ability and temperament onto his offspring. “He stamps his offspring with his athleticism, keenness, wisdom, passion for jumping, and a natural talent for dressage” – Corinne Super Kyle King and Capone 1 have over ten Grand Prix wins under their belt, including the prestigious CN Performance Grand Prix at Calgary, Alberta’s Spruce Meadows in June 2011. Most recently, the pair have been celebrating victories in the $25,000 SmartPak Grand Prix at the HITS Desert Circuit in Thermal, California, and the $100,000 CSI** Oil Patch Grand Prix at the Rocky Mountain Classic II Tournament in Calgary, Alberta.
Written by Tom Reed of Morningside Stud. Capone I is a beautifully-bred Holsteiner stallion that has proven himself to be a top-class showjumper under US rider Kyle King. In 2011 Capone had excellent results in international sport by winning at Spruce Meadows the CN Performance Grand Prix World Cup Qualifier and a second international Grand Prix, placing 4th in a 1.60 m. class, and placing 9th in the Derby. These victories are backed up by results earlier in his career when he was ranked by the FEI among the top 200 showjumpers in the world in both 2006 and 2007 before an ownership dispute, which is now thankfully resolved, led him to be sidelined for several years. The USEF ranks Capone in 2011 as the 108th best sire of showjumpers based on the results of his progeny Castalano. Capone’s success in showjumping verifies the value of his Holsteiner pedigree and specifically his damline, number 890. Capone has a full-brother and a half-brother that also are approved stallions in Germany and, more importantly, another half-brother that is competing successfully in smaller international Grand Prix classes in Europe. And the icing on the cake for me is that Capone’s second dam, Maltia, is also the second dam of the world-class showjumping stallion Casall la Silla. Capone’s damline has produced many other international showjumpers and approved stallions and is precisely the type of damline we look for in a showjumping sire. If my mares were in North America I would use Capone I in my showjumping breeding program with a great deal of enthusiasm. I suspect he requires long-lined mares that tend not to produce too small. He should be given every opportunity by North American breeders to prove his genetic value.
