CASTLEFIELD Kingston, a new star for the sport, has joined Ger O’Neill’s Castlefield Sport Horses in Co Kilkenny.

The five-year-old Oldenburg stallion has a superb pedigree. By the 1.60m jumping stallion Cinsey, he also has Cascari, Caretino and Capitol in his pedigree. This outstanding young horse has presence and technique as well as the phenomenal ability.

Castlefield Kingston is bred and co-owned by Matteo Delmiglio, who is O’Neill’s partner at the newly established Castlefield Breeding operation. He has a bright future in the sport and is showing all the ability to have a successful career. He is a modern athletic horse with all the attributes for today’s technically demanding courses.

His father, Cinsey, typifies a top-class performance type, while his dam, Cascarina (by Cascari) comes from the Holstein line 18B1. Her blood goes back to the foundation mare Dorette, who was the dam of Farn, sire of Nimmerdor, and many other leading stallions come from the family.

Speaking about the stallion, O’Neill said: “He is very modern and very suitable for the sport the way it is gone. He is very careful and elastic and he has all the scope to back it up.

"If we were going to stand a stallion, we had to believe in him and use him ourselves, and I have 10 of my own mares covered by him already.”

Together, O’Neill and Delmiglio have 150 horses in their programme. “I met I met Matteo when I sold Columbcille Gipsy through the PSI auction, he was the one who brokered the deal. I always enjoyed the breeding and it was something I wanted to do at very high level. All the mares he breeds from are out of or related to 1.60m mares,” O’Neill explained.

Castlefield Cornet

Also standing at Castlefield Sport Horses is the four-year-old stallion Castlefield Cornet. By Cornet Obolensky, out of the Diarado-sired Back Lady, Cassini I also features in his pedigree.

Approved by the Mecklenburg studbook, he is an exceptional type with outstanding conformation and a pedigree full of performance genes. He is available for fresh semen for the breeding season ahead.
