By the good jumper stallion Acord II who’s also the sire of top stallions ‘Acorado’ and ‘Arpeggio’. His grandsire ‘Ahorn Z‘ is a full brother to Argentina Z the dam of the great Ratina Z (Ludger Beerbaum) who dominated international showjumping for a decade, winning individual Olympic silver, European gold and won the World Cup final and the Aachen GP etc….. Acord II won his stallion performance test and was an impressive young jumper finishing 2nd in the Bundeschampionate in ’92. he has produced the top jumpers like ‘Artur’ (Aaron Vale), ‘Dobels Araconit’ (Olaf Peters), ‘VDL Atlantic’ (Ulrich Kirchoff) and VDL Atlantic etc……. His dam Elypse is by the Landgraf son Lavall I who bred the likes of ‘Suncals King’ (Joie Gatlin), ‘Loriat’ (Mark Mccauley) and ‘Kassandra’ (Rolf-Goran Bengston) and Lavall also produced ‘Kira’ the dam of the great competitor and stallion ‘Casall la Silla’ (Rolf-Goran Bengston)…… Askari’s grandam Tibrisis a full sister to the good stallions ‘Calypso I and II’ (the latter the father of super sire ‘Contender’) so we see Calypso’s influenced doubled being on either side of his pedigree….
Askari was Holsteiner champion and German reserve champion showjumper as a 5 yr old. He progressed up to lower international level under Siegmar Stroehmer and his results included finishing 3rd in a 1m45 class at 3 star Redefin and also was placed in 1m40 classes at 3 star Paderborn and Gera all in ’06, while the following year he was placed in the stallion class at 2 star Neustadt-Dosse.
His progeny are still young but are starting to appear at international level and include ‘Aragon‘ (Christian Ahlmann) 14th in World Cup Final 2014, while at 5 star level he won the GP at Verona, 3rd GP-W Zurich, 4th GP Doha & 8th GP Hong Kong, won a 1m60 class at Lyon, a 1m55 class at sHertogenbosch & 1m50 classes at Calgary CSIO and Estoril……, ‘Asca Z‘ (Christian Ahlmann) on winning German team at Calgary Nations Cup jumping 4/0, while at 5 star level he won a 1m50 class Basel, a 1m45 at Mechelen, was 2nd in 1m50s at Geneva & Abu Dhabi, 4th 1m50 at Verona and 5th in the GP at Stockholm……, ‘Al Calypso‘ (Samuel Parot) was 13th individually in the Pan Am Games in 2011, also had good placings in 1m45 classes at 5 star Barcelona CSIO & the 4 star shows of Copenhagen CSIO, Wellington CSIO and Lisbon CSIO….., ‘Tiffany‘ (Camilla Storemark) multiple good 1m45 placings at 2 & 3 star shows…… and ‘Isea del Castegno‘ (Massimo Tonali) who was 2nd in the 7/8 yr old class at 2 star Manerbio in 2011.
Ascari himself has a very good jumping technique and a good attitude in the competition ring. He passes on many of these traits to produce good jumping offspring, with good rideability and quite careful attitudes. Probably mares that are too small and without scope should be avoided.
