LORD LARINO LS is a 2008  frozen semen colt by the KPWN sire LARINO by the Legendary CONCORD (Sire of the Century), Lord Larino is out of TOP LADY LS who is one of the top mare families at the stud combining the top sire lines of Tric Trac (TB) with a full sister to the legendary Super Moth LS.

Sire

LARINO is a son of the sports horse producer of the 21st century, Olympic CONCORDE. Concorde already has a great number of children that perform at international level. Larino has in his pedigree four famous and successful showjumper producers. Larino's dam Erina is a daughter of the famous Ramiro offspring, Armstrong. In the report the KWPN judge made, she is described as a very nice mare with a lot of expression. The stallion Larino is out of a lineage that produced many sports horses in the mother line. For example great grandmother Rosalinda (Cassy) got a 10 for jumping under the saddle at her IBOP in 1981. At an older age this mare won many 1.30 classes with Janny Horsey. 

Grandmother Warina, by Ridder, is a ster-preferent-performance mare. She produced the international jumper Romulus, which was second in the Grand Prix of Gothenburg with Peter Geerink and the approved stallion Couperus. He is for example the sire of the famous stallion Mr. Blue, which jumps extraordinary well with Alice Haas. The very interesting motherline of Larino starts with the dominant Holsteiner stallion Normann. At Ermelo during the 70 day Performance Test, Larino was described by the jury as a stallion which jumps with a very good fore-leg technique and a very good use of the back. Moreover Larino shows a lot of scope and a superb canter. Larino was Reserve Champion of the IAN-competition for 4 year old horses in 1997 in the Netherlands and also at the Finals of the UTV jumping class for 4 year olds. At the first round of the Stallion Competition at Giesbeek Larino was awarded two times a nine for his jumping technique and scope. In 1999 Larino and Peter Geerink started their international career by participating successfully in the Youngster Cup at Arnhem, The Hague and Mechelen and he was awarded 'the coming stallion'. In 2001 Larino made his Grand Prix debut in style. He finished 2th in The Hague, 3th in Valkenswaard and he had a fantastic clear round in the nations cup in Rotterdam, as well as equal 6th in the Grand Prix. He was the youngest competitor at the Dutch Championships in Mierlo, where he finished 6th. His oldest offspring, Redefin and Siep, are making a big impact on the jumping scene by winning at the IAN-finals at Ermelo in 2002 and 2003. Larino¹s offspring now have international publicity. Redefin was sold to Canadian Olympic rider Ian Millar and Rivel C. went to Kris Kappler in the USA.

Dam

TOP LADY LS represents LONGSPRING'S top bloodline ever through SUPER MOTH who won 75 showjumping events, 44 at   Grand Prix level and whose winnings totalled more than $90,000 (top dollar for a NZ based horse!). TOP LADY is a blood sister to our stallion TIGER MOTH LS and  is out of a full sister to SUPER MOTH - Design LS and is by TRIBUNE who is a TB with the valuable french bloodlines going back to Veux Manoir. Tribune was by TRIC TRAC known to produce top show jumpers including two Horse of the Year winners, Nationwide and Mr Kincaid, and Olympic eventer Kiwi with Andrew Hoy. The Tribune offspring are doing really well in eventing.

DESIGN LS herself was an exceptionally talented jumper that was sold to the USA for $35000 as a 4 year old but chipped a bone in her shoulder 1 week before she was due to go and then had to be retired to stud. Of interest too is that his dam line goes back to Rauwhare who was a full sister to KORAL by KURDISTAAN who was a top steeplechaser in the South Island and won more than 30 steeplechase races including the Grand National and has a jumping race named after him. This is a family that has lots of jumping talent and a great attitude.

TOP LADY LS was also third in the loose jumping competition held at the Horse of the Year Show in 2002 as a three year old. She is a beautiful looking mare with outstanding movement, jumping ability and a pedigree to match.
