Multiple placings for the Z-horses in the Rolex Grand Slam of 's Hertogenbosch

12 / 03 / 2018
Also in the CSI5 * Rolex Grand Slam of 's Hertogenbosch the Z-horses jumped well!

On Friday, Christian Ahlmann started with a 3rd place with Casuality Z in the 1m45. This Cassini II son was bred by Ton Vullers from Maria Hoop and already had a brilliant career as a young horse: he won a silver medal under the saddle of Pieter Clemens during the World Championships for five-year-old horses. A month later, the gray gelding was purchased by Judy Ann Melchior! We are now 6 years and many places of honor later... Also in the 1m45 on Saturday Ahlmann and Casuality Z got placed: this time they were fourth.

In the 1m55 it was Turbo Z who showed his quality. This Thunder vd Zuuthoeve son jumps for several years under the saddle of Michael Greeve and became 9th in the CSI3* Grand Prix of Drachten earlier this year. The switch to five star competitions appears to please the gelding, since next to his 7th place on Friday, he also finished in 6th place in the 1m45 on Sunday. Turbo Z was bred by W. van Stam and comes out of Gicini, a Renville daughter. Besides Turbo Z, Gicini is also the dam of Kor II, who jumped at 1m60 level with Roelof Bril, and Hoek's Nan, who jumped at 1m50 level with Henk van de Pol.

In the 1m45 on Saturday there was, besides Casuality Z's fourth place, also a 7th place for Nicola Philippaerts with Aikido Z. This Accardi son was bred and is owned by Annick Bijloos and already won many places of honor.
In the 1m55 there was a second place for Johnny Pals with Chat Botte du Ruisseau Z. This KWPN-approved Casall ASK-son became 8th in the Sires of the World after one time penalty and jumped excellent again in Den Bosch. He was bred by Andre Vandepapeliere and is the half-brother of the 1m60 jumping Heidi du Ruisseau Z. Christian Ahlmann and Clintrexo Z, bred by Stoeterij Zangersheide, finished in 6th place in this class. This Z-approved Clintissimo Z-son comes from the same damline as Chidame by Pius Schwizer and was formerly under the saddle of Judy-Ann Melchior.

On Sunday, Michael Greeve and Turbo Z closed with a 6th place in the 1m45. Kim Emmen also got placed in this class with Ascatano Z. She became 9th with the Asca Z son. Ascatano Z is bred by Pieter Kersten and is the full brother of the 1m40 jumping Acasca Z.
