Casallo Z grabs his first GP vistory

10 / 06 / 2013
The revelation of the first half of 2013 is definitely Casallo Z, a 9-yr-old gelding by Casall, who is jumping under the Italian Piergiorgio Bucci. In December he gave his first FEI performances at two star level. From there he showed a powerful upward trend. Early June, for instance, he wrote the CSI4* GP of Poznan to his name. Although this was a competition that took place in Poland, there was powerful competition. Silver WC rider Abdullah Al Sharbatly finished second on Chesterfield. Dutch top-class rider Leon Thijssen and Tyson claimed place three. The week before Casallo Z had also jumped a double clear in the CSI4* GP of Bourg-En-Bresse, good for a fifth place. In his own country at a three star show in San Giovanni di Marignano he had finished in third place in the GP in early May. Over the past six months this young gelding finished ten times in the top ten at FEI level 1.50m. Maurice Hermans from Alken in Belgium is the breeder of Casallo Z. He comes from the celebrated Holsteiner lineage 18a2. In Poznan two Z-horses reached the top five in a Longines Ranking competition. Winner was Olivier Philippaerts (Cooper vd Heffinck). Santiago Lambre came second on Zeus du Buisson Z (Zandor Z, breeder A. v.d. Morter from Zetten, NL ). Leon Thijssen and Heartthago Z (Heartbreaker, breeder J. Smits from Esch, NL) finished in fourth place.
