His bloodlines are so prolific that his son Alme z is also considered to be a Selle Francais foundation Stallion.

Dam Great Grandsire – FURIOSO II, SELLE FRANCAIS, 1965

FURIOSO II (1965 – 1986) Such a stallion is born only once every hundred years! exclaimed the man who discovered Furioso II, Georg Vorwerk, when he first saw the dark chestnut on a tour to France. Furioso II is one of the most influential sires in sport horse history. His offspring have performed well in all disciplines of show jumping, including at the Barcelona and Sydney Olympics. Known as the “Stamp Stallion”, because his offspring inherited his ‘very good feet and legs, his outstanding neck and shoulder, striking dappled chocolate chestnut coat with flaxen tail and white markings’, Furioso II was later approved for the Hanoverian, Rhineland, and Westphalian studbooks.

ALME (by Ibrahim) was an International show-jumper.  “Today Almé is the only stallion in the World to have fathered two World Champions and three Olympic horses. During the Eighties an Olympic team could have been made up of his sons alone. Only Furioso could have done that in the sixties. In 1991 Jalisco may hope to do as much, being a product of both Furioso and Almé.” “The only horse with a comparable family tree and with whom he has often been compared is Northern Dancer. Almé’s legacy is already assured by the extraordinary quality of his sons, already working stallions, and will gain from the arrival on the sports field his five new generations.”

Of course, ALME’s sire was IBRAHIM of which Chachi would have inherited genetics from both the DOUBLE ESPOIR and the ALME Z lines, which makes for a remarkable genetic package.
