Valparaiso was named 1st Reserve Champion at the 2013 Westphalian Main Licensing in Münster-Handorf. After his first (international) successes in tests for young dressage horses, he made the winning jump to the advanced level at the age of seven. At the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Ermelo/NED, he placed seventh under Wolfgang Himsl/AUT after winning the Small Final.

Afterwards Victoria Max-Theurer/AUT took over the further sportive promotion of Valparaiso. In their first season together the pair celebrated series victories in the international Small Tour 2019.

At the beginning of 2022, Valparaiso made his debut in the Grand Prix class under Laura Strobel and immediately celebrated international victories and top placings in the Grand Prix Special tours of Achleiten/AUT, Neu-Anspach and Randbøl/DEN. After further successes in 2023, the two were not only able to achieve a new best mark in the Grand Prix in Wiener Neustadt, they also decided their first freestyle in their favor - and with a lead of more than 3.5 percentage points! The pair continued their success in the international Grand Prix tours in Frankfurt, Troisdorf and Munich.

Also sire Vitalis was reserve winner of the NRW licensing in Münster-Handorf in 2009. He placed at the World Championships for young dressage horses in Verden in 2012 and 2013. In 2016 he became "Stallion of the Year" at the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Ermelo and superior winner of the Nuremberg Burgpokal in Frankfurt.

The dam Final Destination is half sister to the licensed Rittersport (by Ritterorden) and besides Valparaiso also produced the licensed Escolar son Escavio.

The dam's sire, Fürst Piccolo, was stationed as a state stud in North Rhine-Westphalia and sired 18 licensed sons. He himself won dressage competitions up to St. Georges. His offspring often emulate him, over 60 of them placed in advanced level dressage.

The second dam, Randy, also produced the advanced (S) level dressage horses Felino (by Felin) and Royal Flash (by Roman Nature)/Katharina Hemmer, the advanced (S) level show jumper Graf Gayden (by Gracioso) and the medium (M) level dressage horse Fürchtemich (by Fürst Piccolo).

Rheingold and Frühlingstraum II follow in third and fourth place in the pedigree.

The great granddam Fabiolo is a double stallion dam: Disco-Traum (by Disco-Star) and Rimini (by Rheingold).

The Hanoverian mare line of Almsonne also produced the licensed stallions Fuerstensohn (by Feuerzauber), Rhodonit PI (by Rohdiamant), Schwanenritter (by Schwangau), Lamoureux I and II (both by Landadel), Santa Cruz (by Argentinus), Flairon (by Foxiland xx) and Leonboy (by Larome).
