His foals have consistently shared his athletisism and eagerness to jump, his big fancy movement and his uphill conformation.
Dammar’s sire is Dublin. Dublin is often described as a stunning horse and brings with him through his outstanding Dutch heritage the qualities that today's breeders are seeking; temperament, ability, quality, conformation, athleticism, elegance, power and movement. Dublin not only has proven himself in the competition ring, but also as a top sire with many children and grand children competing successfully in Holland, and around the world. Dublin is very similar to his outstanding sire Ulft in appearance. Ulft's sons in Holland include Olympic Ferro, Dublin, Ducaat and Boston. Olympic Ferro was a silver medalist in dressage at the Sydney Olympics. For those whose passion lies in producing show jumpers it may be interesting to note that Jonathan Millar, Ian Millar's son, is currently riding an Ulft son, Fine Line. This young International Grand Prix jumper was an alternate on the Canadian Olympic team for the 2000 Sydney Olympics. It is also interesting to note that Ulft himself made his debut in showjumping. Ulft is a descendent of the versatile Furioso xx line. Ulft's famous Dutch sire, Le Mexico (by Mexico) was known for his ability to produce top jumping horses and very good movers. Mexico, of course, is a full brother to Furioso II. Dublin's sire line has produced many Olympic medalists in both jumping and dressage.
