|Horse (Equus ferus caballus)|
Furioso was an influential sire of jumping horses, and is found in the pedigrees of many top show jumpers today.
Furioso was a terrible racehorse, with zero wins out of 21 starts. However, he was a fantastic 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.
