    this is extremely sad. caretino was a legend of sporthorse production, and a gentleman in the stall.

    his blood lives on in his many children, not least in the great sport stallion casall.

    i'm very sorry to hear.

    I got the opportunity to visit with him this summer at Elmshorn. He was very much a gentleman but was really showing his age. Its nice that he could be a legend in his own time as well as going forward.

    Very sad news. He is a great horse who will live on in his offspring.

    What a loss. Although his time had come, it was great that Holstein had recognized his breeding talents while he was still able to breed. I imagine there are a few breeders scrambling for this season to figure out their alternate. Many bred their mares to junior stallions just so they could breed to him this year. Oh well...and too the next generation.
