Contucci's sire Caprimond was a successful Grand Prix competitor and was the 1998 Trakehner Stallion of the Year. Contucci’s dam, Laureen, received 9’s on all her gaits at her MPT. The Caprimond-Laureen combination was successfully repeated 5-times with excellent results, including the FEI mare Capricia. Contucci’s grandsire, Lungau, is also the damsire of World Cup Champions Salinero and Brentina.
Contucci’s impact remains significant for North American breeding programs. His positive influence on conformation, movement, and character is undeniably proven. Contucci’s accolades include having earned the titles USEF Dressage Breeding Sire of the Year and USEF Dressage Sire of the Year, and he is consistently ranked in the Top 10 of the USEF Sire Rankings. From breed shows in-hand through the Grand Prix level, Contucci proves time and again his ability to sire dressage champions. He has also sired licensed stallions and many Premium/Elite daughters.
Contucci won the dressage portion of his 100-Day Test with an impressive 147.11 points, earning 9’s on his character, willingness, rideability, trot, and canter.
Dressage breeders looking to improve the head and neck, emphasize freedom in the shoulder, and provide a modern type without sacrificing bone will especially want to consider Contucci. The Contucci offspring are typically forward-thinking but sensible and well-suited for junior and amateur riders. His offspring are consistent winners from in-hand Championships at the prestigious Dressage at Devon to the Grand Prix arena. When breeding, it makes sense to stack the odds in your favor by choosing a proven sire like Contucci.
