He is by the stallion Vechta (Voltaire) and out of the International Showjumper mare Flexing (Flex/Cruising). Edward Doyle has bred some of the world's top showjumpers, including 2012 World Cup winner Flexible, whose Dam Flex is Dilligaf's Grand Dam.
Dilligaf is shown by Mark Watring of California. His first foal crop in Ireland turned 4 this year.
