The success of many high-achieving Holsteiner breeding and sport horses is due to their solidly constructed genetic design. Stallions known to pass on their qualities to their offspring are bred to mares with a genetic capacity well-known to their breeders. This process being repeated from generation to generation has led to the development of some particularly successful branches of Holsteiner performance lines. Such a powerful genetic design becomes manifest in Castle Creek’s breeding.

His type and ability to perform have been particularly shaped by selective line breeding to the exceptional sire Caletto II. His sire Casall is known as an exceptional performer of the highest calibre. With his own and his offspring’s performance beyond any doubt, he has gained worldwide recognition. His dam Orchidee is by Carthago, a two times Olympic horse and winner of many international high-profile Grand Prix competitions under Jos Lansink with a reputation as an international top sire despite only a short time at stud. Orchidee’s produce also includes Formidable by For Pleasure – State four-year-old Holsteiner Jumping Champion at Elmshorn in 2009 and later top class young jumper in the USA.

His second dam Winnipeg has produced several successful S level jumpers as well as Lasandos, a Holsteiner-approved stallion with great influence on the Irish breeding programme. The highly successful dam line is based on stem 18A2 which has produced numerous highly successful sport horses like for example Calle Cool, winner of the Hamburg Derby, and King Artus, Olympic gold medallist in eventing.
