In 1998/1999 Capitol was ranked third in top sires of show jumpers of all breeds in the world. Capitol has had tremendous influence on international jumping with over eighteen horses, placing in the top fifty jumpers in the world. Capitol's maternal line is one of the best that can be found in Holstein. Capitol's sire Capitano is out of the mare Retina, daughter of Ramzes, the Anglo Arab many breeders considered improvement sire of the century. Retina was the winner of the German show jumping Derby. In Carolus I's pedigree there are three crosses to Ramzes. Carolus I's dam Lacq had many advanced level show jumping wins in competitions. Her son Carolus II is a full brother to Carolus I has won many international Grand Prix, including the "Sire of the World" show jumping competition at Zangersheide in Lanaken Belgium in 1997.
In 1995 and 1996 many of Carolus I's offspring qualified for the German national championships. His son Conto was licensed in the Netherlands and won the Stallion Performance test in Neustadt/Dosse. Carolus's daughter Hirtin, the full sister to Clinton produced Levisto, winner of the Neustadt/Dosse Stallion Performance test in 2000 with a jumping index of " 156 ". Carolus I is a hereditary gene transmitter. The bloodline 4965 also produced Zandor Z(Zeus-Polydor) stationed at Zangerheide in Belgium. The dam's sire Calypso II has rewritten Holsteiner and Hannoverian and Oldenburg breed history. He was trained and shown by Dr. Michael Ruping as a show jumper and has the same strength in transmission of genes as Carolus I has with a very conspicuous above average rideability also seen in his offspring.
