Lacoriante is several times inbred on Ladykiller xx and has above that a
strongly thoroughbred influenced
pedigree ( Manometer xx, Tin Rod xx, Ultimate xx, Un Prince xx, Earldom xx,
Xebec xx, Cottage Sun xx).
Her father is the Oldenburger premium stallion and finalist of the german
championship Lacoro from
Landfrieden. Landfriedens pedigree combines two of the most influential
Holsteiner stallions, the all time
great stallion Landgraf I and the
successful producer of versatile sporthorses Calypso I. Lacoro's grandsire
Reichsgraf is also the grandsire of Contendro.
Reichsgraf is known for his successful progeny although he
was only available for a short time period.
Lacoriante descends from a very well known dam line. Her granddam VbPrSt Zoliante
going back to the
KWPN stud book, is one of the most successful brood mares of
the Rheinland. She delivered several gold
medal foals, auction highlights and national winners.
She consistently passed on outstanding movements,
for example to the approved full-brothers Dream
of Heidelberg I+II from Donnerschlag.
Dream of Heidelberg II, twice finalist of the german Bundeschampionat, has won
Intermediare II and on Grand Prix level. Zoliante's daughter Goliante is the
mother of the approved

Lacoriante's great-granddam Ramona brought with Eyecatcher (Leslie Burr-Lenehan
USA) and Ewald
(Emiel Hendrix NL) two internationally successful jumping horses and
was awarded the title
'Brood mare of the year' of the Netherlands in 1996.
In the pedigree of Lacoriante's grandsire Sultan (KWPN) you will find plenty
of french thoroughbred as well
as the Holsteiner stallion Joost, going back via Consul to Cottage Son xx.
