Five Z-horses in the 6-year-old stallions jump-off

28 / 12 / 2017
In the 6-year-old stallions class in the Stoeterij Zangersheide Prize at Jumping Mechelen no less than 5 out of 10 horses in the jump-off were Z-horses! The Brit Joe Clee did his best to take the win home with De Flor 111 Z but finished second in 39.02 sec. De Flor 111 Z is a son of Der Senaat and bred by Peter Van Santvoort & Harrie Theeuwes Stables NV. De Flor 111 Z already became a champion at the PAVO Stallion Competition as a four-year-old stallion and has continued to achieve good results ever since. His full brother, Diego Maradonna 111 Z, was crowned champion at the AES stallion show in 2015.

Third place was for Di Cantero from Ter Hulst Z. This Diamant de Semilly-son was bred by Bernard Duvillier and bought by Stal Bruynseels, Jan Wuytack and de Moerhoeve as a 3-year old. Niels Bruynseels entrusted his training to Kurt De Clercq and took over the reins two weeks ago. Di Cantero is also the half-brother of Cerruti van ter Hulst Z. This Cassini I-mare is only 7 years old and jumps at 1m45 level with Jonna Ekberg.

Also place four went to a Z-horse thanks to Stijn Van Opstal and Elias van de Vinkhoeve Z. This Echo van 't Spieveld-son was bred by Hilda Roelen from Ranst and, just like his full sister Ella vd Vinkhoeve Z, is already under the saddle of Van Opstal for some time. This summer Elias van de Vinkhoeve Z and Van Opstal finished 4th in the CSI1* Grand Prix in Lier but they are also often placed in the CSI-YH classes.

Place 9 went to Catch the Dark Z. This Catoki-son from Chellana Z (Chellano Z) appeared at the start with Jelle Sappin. Catch The Dark Z was bred by De Smet - Van Rijckegem from Moerbeke and also jumped at the Belgian Championship for 6 year old horses.

Jamiro Overnel Z closed the jump-off with a tenth place. Mathieu van der Kelen already had a good season with this Jamar d'Ysenbeeck Z-son and even managed to win the second round of the Hippo Rania Senior Championship. Jamiro Overnel Z was born in Affligem at A. Sergooris.
