About the Sire Line

Never Desperate is by Damokles ( Ukato X Orindy). The talented and athletic Damokles was five-star placed and jumped the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™️ New York at the American Gold Cup within two months of debuting at the international level. Damokles is by

Ukato, one of the most talented and successful sons of the great Stakkato. Ukato died at the end of 2014. Ukato died too early after he had an impressive career in sport. Ridden by Willem Greve, Ukato won the Grand Prix of Dresden, Hagen and Salzburg and was placed many times in international classes. As a six year old Ukato – than ridden by Marco Brinkman won the bronze medal at the World Championships in Lanaken. As a youngster Ukato won a lot of classes. At the KWPN Performancetest he received a 9,5 for his jumping ability.

Ukato passes on his jumping talent to his progeny. Over 60 offspring jump at international level at 1.40m level and higher. His son Alamo won the Grand Prix of Helsinki 2017, ridden by Steve Guerdat. Based on the results of his offspring Ukato is ranked in the top 5 of the Horsetelex IPV ranking. Ukato is bred by Paul Schockemohle out of the famous Holstein damline of Calido I and Little Rock. Also the our young stallion Jargon is bred out of this damline. 

Ukato’s sire Stakkato is one of the legends and proven sires of the Hanoverian Society.  Damokles’s dam is the KWPN mare Orindy, a productive broodmare who has produced no less than three internationally competing offspring, all by Ukato.
