With more than 150 winnings and placement in the international show jumping circuit, CASSINO proved his great attitude in sports.
Besides winning the Derby at the CSIO in Falsterbo, CASSINO was succesful in speed classes, puissance and was a member of the Swiss nations team.
His rider A. Ott: 'CASSINO always wanted to win, this attitude and the fact that during his 10 year career he never was injured, makes him outstanding'.
Cassino pedigree is built up on three fabulous stallions: CASSINI I - ROMAN - MARLON XX
