Mezcalero is the son of the world-renowned Voltaire, who has gained acclaim both as a successful international competitor and as a sire of supremely successful offspring. Mezcalero's damsire is the incomparable Ramiro, who stood in Holland, Germany, Westfal, and Zangershiede, and was names Horse of the Year in Holland in 1992 due to his breeding success for Leon Melchior. A more successful sire than Ramiro is seldom seen.
