Rico & Amélia
Fogoso is a remarkable Lusitano, born at Torres Vaz Freire stud farm. This stallion is son of Amélia (by Raja) and Rico, an approved 5-star merit stallion, a title held by few Lusitano horses, demonstrating proven bloodlines in terms of Grand Prix potential as well as morphology. Fogoso is a gold medal winner in Lusitano morphology events and he is a recommended 4-star breeder by APSL (Associação Puro Sangue Lusitano – Lusitano purebred Association).
Fogoso is a 10-year-old Lusitano stallion with a strong Grand Prix curriculum for such a young horse. He achieved the second best place of the Portuguese team in the European Championships 2019 in Roterdam, scoring 71.786% for a 26th place overall. This result was a solid contribution to the Portuguese team qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, a historic mark, which had never been achieved before.
