Who could tell which is the better sire? Darco or Quickstar? One got all the chances, the other got but a few. Darco was leader of the world ranking for six years as best show jumping horse producer. Quickstar is currently in the top five, but he has produced far less offspring. Which will you use? The Olympic Darco, also famous for his offspring Otterongo, Parco, Sapphire, and more, or Quickstar? The former miracle under Meredith Michaels produced the current champion horses Big Star and Orient Express. Well you don’t have to choose. Both stallions are grandsires of this Darko Z. Darco is grandsire of this foal via the stallion Douglas VDL. Quickstar is the sire of the dam Tanagra M, who comes from the classic Dutch Karin family, as do the CSI horses Marlou, Desteny vh Dennehof, Damora Z and the Olympic mare Rolette. This lineage has branched out very much.
