Kairo's sire Kianto, was also the sire of Spokane. We successfull bred Galaxia DD II to Spokane and she produced two very beautiful, correct, and super athletic colts (Sapporo and El Coqueto). This bloodline crossed with Keberes (Galaxia's dam) should also be successful.

Kianto's sire Genio III was a gorgeous black stallion bred in Spain, imported in-utero to Mexico, and eventually stood stud at JDon Farms. He produced many national champions in the US. Genio's sire and dam were bred by the famous Yeguada Lovera of Spain.

Kianto's dam Samba III (Eclipse III x Lebrera XI) was bred by Roberto Maldonado Bermejo. Samba's registered Spanish offspring include Sarah Palin AK, Gaton AK, Federal X, and Wanapum (all sired by Competidor XIII) as well as Doctora AK (by Prestigio), Contador III (by Orador XVI), and Regaliz 2 (by Ingrato IX). Samba's sire Eclipse III (also known as Nene XIII) is of Urguijo & Novales, Roberto Osborne, Baones, and Boloix bloodlines. Her dam Lebrera XI carries Yeguada Militar bloodlines.

Kairo's Pedigree - Dam Side

Kairo's dam Alegria AK (Imaginario x Ladonya K) was bred by Ami MacHugh (who also owns Kianto). Alegira has 8 foals registered in the Spanish books including Kelowna AK, Bristol AK, Sitka AK, Fiona VII, and Klickitat (all by Kianto) as well as Dora AK (by Orador XVI) and Dona XIV (by Genio III).

Alegria's sire Imaginario was bred/owned by George and Karen Rosenthal. Imaginario's sire Senorito XXVI 1982 (Pericon x Senorita XII) was bred by Yeguada Romero Benitez. This bloodline was mostly Yeguada Militar as well as Romero Benitez and Bocado.  Imaginario's dam was Almansa - her bloodlines include Lovera, Hierro de Bocado, and Yeguada Militar.

Alegria's dam was Ladona K (Castitblanco 1980 ITI x Tunia). Ladonya, like Imaginario, was bred by the Rosenthals. Her sire Castiblanco was Garrison bred and goes back to Terry and military lines. Her dam Tunia was sired by Temerario V (Romero Benitez). Tunia's dam Zeolita 1979 ITI was bred from lines going back to Legionario III and Capitan XIII.
