12 / 03 / 2018
The Atlantic Tour ended last weekend in Vilamoura, Portugal. The Z-horses closed in beauty: Titouan Schumacher and Atome Z won the CSI3* Grand Prix, a class that also counts as a qualifier for the WEG in Tryon and the European Championship in Rotterdam! From the 58 starting combinations, 9 were able to qualify for the jump-off. Atome Z, an 11-year-old son of Amadeus Z, was the fastest: he finished with Titouan Schumacher in 36.27 sec and won by more than one second. On the dam's side, Atome Z carries the blood of Toulon. Atome Z was bred by Daniel Tescari in France and already jumped to a fifth place in the 1m45 on Saturday. Also the 9th place in the CSI3* Grand Prix was for a Z-horse: Jamie Wingrove finished in 48.79 sec with Cardigan Z, a Chellano Z-son.

Also Arno van het Scheefkasteel Z got placed in the 1m45 on the same day. This 11-year-old Air Jordan Z son was bred by Johan Hubrechts in Peer. Together with Marc Bettinger, the brown gelding jumped two clear rounds. In a jump-off with 35 (of 81 starters), they finished in 28.85 sec, good for a 9th place.

In the 1m30 there was a second place for Thierry Goffinet with Quinty du Buisson Z. Quinty is a son of Quartz II Adelheid Z and was bred by A.M.M. van de Mortel in Egchel. Also in the 1m35 there were places of honor for the Z-horses: C Berriz Z and Francisco Rocha jumped to a third place, while Thierry Goffinet gained a fifth place with She vd Withoeve Z. C Berriz Z was bred in Portugal by FPJH Van Ettro and is a daughter of Coltaire. She vd Withoeve Z is bred by De Withoeve LV and is a daughter of Sting vd Withoeve. She also became 10th in the 1m30 day before. In the 1m40 Michael Pender won for the second time: after his victory with Dome van Overis Z on Saturday in the 1m35, they were also fastest on Sunday in a class with 57 participants. Dome of Overis Z is a Darco son bred by Gerald Lenaerts from Peer. In the same class, there was a 10th place for Roberto Turchetto with Querly R Z. Querly R Z is a daughter of Quannan R and was bred by NV Yacelo. Previously she was ridden by Sven Van Dijck with whom she was already successful at CSI3* level. Querly R Z is a daughter of Roxy van 't Merelsnest Z, who in her turn is a sister to the Olympic gold medallist Sapphire.

On Saturday, there was also a 5th place for Clyde LVB Z in the 1m35. This Clinton I-son was bred by Beauty BVBA and already won several places of honor under the saddle of Francisco Rocha!
