Breeding & pedigree information
Xerxes Interagro is a young approved stallion already exhibiting an excellent Interagro offspring of five colts and one filly. His son, Furiel Interagro was one of the stars of the Interagro Brazilian Auction in August 2010, bought by one of the most important Lusitano breeders in Brazil. His dam, Cigana III (MLC) is one the most important “Founding Mares” of the Interagro lineage. Cigana III (MLC) is the dam of six official Interagro stallions as well as four brood mares and two fillies which are, or will be, integrated in our breeding program. An extensive commentary on Cigana III (MLC) and Quínio Interagro the sire of Xerxes can be found at the pedigree´s links below. Quínio Interagro - the sire of Beato Interagro, the price record of the 2010 Collection – has several outstanding sons exported to the U.S. The extraordinary pedigree of Xerxes Interagro – combining the most important Lusitano genealogies, and in particular, the genetic power of two of the most successful mares in the breed’s history: his dam Cigana III (MLC) and grand-mare Cyclope (SA) - makes this young stallion one of its kind, a rarity not found anywhere else.

Trainer’s Opinion by Heather Bender
Xerxes Interagro has been shown successfully in the competition ring in Brazil. He received a 65% in the riders’ first ever 3rd level test. Xerxes Interagro is very talented in lateral work and collection and demonstrates super gaits and correct conformation. His gift for collection makes pirouettes and half steps quite easy. He is a sensitive horse that an experienced rider will find easy to make very light to the aids. His forward attitude is very appropriate for the FEI levels. While riding in the ring, Xerxes Interagro is naturally forward. With continued calm sensitive riding, he will be a king; confident, completely sensible and proud. He is not a horse that will do well with overriding. He will be the best match for a rider that is ‘understated’ and patient with the aids. Xerxes Interagro is a horse that develops a partnership with his rider: after work, his rider at Interagro could be seen riding him out to the paddock bareback for his turn out. Always a gentleman and a pleasure to be around, he loves the hack and is extremely good even when passing by pastures with mares and babies in them. Xerxes Interagro will be missed by all at Interagro Farms.
