One measure of greatness is Brazil’s ELITE book – a registry of National Champion Marchadors who also produced National Champions. Bossa Nova’s heritage includes one of the breed’s leading sires of all time – Herdade Cadillac. Elite book horses show on the pedigree as MM-7 (Elite) or MM-8 (Super Elite).

- Herdade Cadillac
The ELITE book is not the only measure of quality however. Some Marchador breeders prefer not to show their horses, but to prove them in other ways — like cavalgadas, sports, cattle and ranch work etc. Also, until 2005, there were no classes at the shows for Marcha Picada horses.
