Capitol’s dam, Folia, showed great jumping potential and produced the licensed stallions Latus I and II, Capitol II, and famous daughter U- Capitola.

Cassini I is highly sought after sire of performance horses throughout Europe and the world.His offspring are in great demand and have proven themselves in the toughest competitive arenas.
