Castiza DA is out of our fabulous Qualified mare *Latina VII and by Imperioso D. Like her sire and dam, Castiza not only posses size, substance and power but is incredibly "Spanish"! Castiza has a huge trot! As her name implies she is very well bred. Castiza's pedigree represents the Yeguda Militar, Antonio Disodo Galan, Cardenas, and Terry bloodlines. Her sire's sire, Granadino, is one of the last living sons of the great Leviton. Imperioso's dam is the stunning Cardenas mare *Quizas.
