Celtic News’ sire, Cubito, is our 2004 Holsteiner stallion by Contender. In 2006 Cubito was champion stallion at the Holsteiner Verband approvals in Germany. Ninety (90) 2 1/2 year old stallions were pre selected for the Approvals and after 3 days of competition Cubito reigned supreme. With his fantastic free jumping form and phenomenal movement Cubito brought a sold out crowd of over 4,000 to their feet. Cubito stayed in Germany and completed his 30 day test in Schlieckau with excellent scores in 2nd place against the best 3 year old stallions in Germany. He earned 9.5s in jumping form and scope as well as earning 9s in his canter and rideability.
Celtic News’ Dam is Last Princess. She is a very interestingly bred mare by Last News (TB). Last News was bred by Frank Chapot and is a grandson of Good Twist (father of the world famous Gem Twist). Her mother Coolrain Princess is also the mother of multiple Grand Prix winner Ado Annie. Last Princess dominated the 5 year old Jumper division at WEF 2010 and placed 1st or 2nd in almost every YJC qualifier. She won over $6,000 as a 5 year old. Due to an injury Last Princess entered our broodmare herd and has produced 2 lovely colts by Cubito.
