Furioso was an influential sire of jumping horses, and is found in the pedigrees of many top show jumpers today.


Furioso's lineage including the horses Precipitation, Son-in-Law, Double Life and Dark Ronald

Furioso was a poor racehorse, with zero wins out of 21 starts. However, he was an outstanding sire of jumping horses, standing in France. Furioso was ‘well balanced but with slightly knock kneed forelegs and tight hocks’ and 'had good bone, and walked liked a Lord, with a magnificent pace, very energetic and showing a great deal of amplitude, his tail swinging at each step. His trot and gallop were good but not exceptional. Though full of life he was docile and had a good temperament.’

After World War II, he was purchased by the French National Stud, where he was used as a breeding stallion until his death in 1968.
