Noblewood Park Caesar was the leading stallion in the six year old class at the 2006 Australian showjumping championships and was described by the judge Ulrich Klatte as ‘a powerhouse who has an excellent front end and a powerful back end.”
An exciting cross between the imported mare Blatini and the imported stallion Collins. Caesar’s dam Blatini was the leading mare in Australia in 2005/6 and Horse of the Year in 2004/5/6 in Western Australia. Blatini has won 8 World Cup Qualifiers including Equitana, Wodonga, Sale and Shepparton. Blatini has won or been highly placed in every major competition in Western Australia as well as every World Cup Qualifier that they have entered.
She is famous for her bravery, scope and trainability. Caesar’s grand-dam Cantara was also one of the most talented mares in the Noblewood team and is a grand dam of Noblewood Stud. She was the most successful mare in Australia in 2003. She retired in November 2004 to the stud as a brood mare. She jumped in World Cup Qualifiers with two wins, two second places, third place and numerous minor placings. Cantara was a brave and careful jumping mare.
Caesar is the only foal from Blatini and began his competition career in Western Australia, also competing in the Eastern States where he won many admirers by winning and placing in many competitions and breed classes. Caesar’s sire Collins is by the Holsteiner stallion Calando I (by Cor de la Bryère) out of a Caletto I mare (by Cor de la Bryère) giving him a double cross with the famous Holsteiner foundation sire. He was typical of the new type of sport horse currently favoured. He was a well-balanced stallion of 16.3 hands with generous strides and a natural elastic movement. He has a lovely head carried on a beautiful neck, producing elegance, lightness and self-carriage.
He was a very successful sporthorse and produced wonderful elastic and scopy progeny. Caesar died at the age of 10 in 2010.
