Born in 1985, the KWPN stallion Damiro B has died at the age of 33 at the farm of Arnaud Gicquel, who was entrusted with his retirement care by the French National Stud.  Bred by W. van Dam in the Netherlands, Damiro was the result of a cross between two legendary stallions: The great Ramiro Z (Raimond - Valine x Cottage Son xx) and Almé (Ibrahim - Girondine x Ultimate xx), via his dam, the ster pref KWPN dam, Torette.

Damiro was the champion of his performance test in 1988, achieving five nines, and became champion of the Netherlands 'A' level jumping season in 1989/90. He leaves a number of approved sons, including Opium de Salbris, Rialto des Rosiers, Styx Merze and Urbain d'Helby in France, as well as being the dam's sire of Suspens Floreval (Clinton) and Calipsso de l'Illon I (Quite Easy), among others.
