Three weeks of Z Tour already passed by

16 / 04 / 2018
Yesterday the three-week during Z-Tour at domain Zangersheide in Lanaken was closed with the CSI3 * Grand Prix. In a jump-off with eight, Gudrun Patteet triumphed. The Belgian lady rider was by far the fastest combination with the twelve-year-old Sea Coast Pebbles Z (Picasso Z x Flamenco de Semilly), bred by Yves Clercx from Hoeselt. Gerben Morsink and the dark brown stallion Navarone Z (Nabab de Reve x Amor) followed in sixth place with one bar in the jump-off. Navarone Z descends out of the well-known breeding of Jacqueline Evenhuis and the brothers Jos and Louis Morsink. The international 1.60m jumping horses Zekina Z (Zandor Z), Chaqui Z (Chacco-Blue), Cartaire Z (Carvallo Z) and Faithfull (Zekino) all descend out of this damline. On Friday, Navarone Z already finished fifth in the 1.50m class against the clock. Christian Ahlmann then took fourth place with Calva D'or Z (calvaro Z x Quinar). This stallion was bred by Diana Terwingen and was sold at the Zangersheide Quality Auction in 2009.

In the 1.45m table A against the clock, the Italian rider of Stal Tops Alberto Zorzi rode Zantana Z (Zandor Z x Guidam) to third place. The Zangersheide poster boy Dominator 2000 Z (Diamant de Semilly x Cassini I) also finished clear with Christian Ahlmann in the saddle. They took fifth place. The Zangersheide bred and approved Qooper I Z (Chellano Z x Calvaro Z) followed in eighth place under the German lady rider Angelique Rüsen.

At the six-year-old classes Melanie Gelin again achieved the most top rankings with her two Aganix du Seigneur x Diamant de Semilly descendants. In the closing class she won with Attoucha Hero Z and she finished third with Alana Hero Z. The previous days Attoucha Hero Z already became fifth and eighth, Allana Hero Z second and third. Davina DH Z (Donckervoort DH x Va-Vite) won the opening class for six-year-olds with Leen Braeckmans.

After two victories at a height of 1.35m in the first week of the Z-tour, Patrick McEntee added another victory to the list of honors of Alice Mury Marais Z (Air Jordan Z x Calvin Z). This time they won the 1.30m class with two phases. In the same class, but for riders aged under 25, Xavier Peeters finished second with Let It Be 111 Z (Lord Z x Utrillo Z) after a previously achieved third place on Thursday. Leonie Krieg and Cisano De Nyze Z (Cassini II x Argentinus) were again clear and placed. They ended in seventh place.

In the last few weeks Casparo 26 (Casparo Z) performed very consistently in Kronenberg. Also in Lanaken, Gert-Jan Bruggink accounted for a third place at 1.50m level. Casparo 26 is a descendant of Calato Z x Marome NW and was bred by Loes Sanderink from Weerselo in the Netherlands. Gerben Morsink rode the eight-year-old Zangersheide stallion Rapidash (original name Cadeau vd Lange Vos Z) of Chaqui Z x Lancelot to fifth place.

Also Diadarco van Evendael Z (Diamant de Semilly and Darco) and Koen Vereecke were again in the top three. They became second in the 1.40m course with two phases special. Jos Verlooy finished fourth in the same class with the eight-year-old Z approved stallion Cor-Leon vd Vlierbeek Z (Calvaro Z x Omar).
