Uncle AD W Z wins the CSI2* Grand Prix of Villeneuve-Loubet

12 / 03 / 2018
At the same time that in Vilamoura the CSI3* Grand Prix was won by a Z-horse, in Villeneuve-Loubet the CSI2* Grand Prix was won by Joffrey Buard with Uncle AD W Z. This Untouchable Z son was bred by W van Stam and is closely related to Turbo Z, who jumped clear at the same time in 's Hertogenbosch. Of the 8 combinations that qualified for the jump-off, 5 jumped clear. In 41.50 seconds, Uncle AD W Z was more than two seconds faster than the rest of the competitors and thus took home the top prize!

In the class before the Grand Prix, the 1m40, Jack Whitaker ended 6th with Billy Z. This Burggraaf son was bred by Fagg S. and comes from the same damline as Nino des Buissonnets, who finished fourth with Steve Guerdat at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Also in the young horses classes the Z-horses set the tone: Dark Moon de Greenbay Z and Nicolas Delmotte went home with the victory. This 6-year-old Diarado offspring was bred by Stephane Chantot and is a son of Talk About Me, a Numero Uno daughter who jumped at 1m50 level herself with Dmitriy Berestov. Nicolas Delmotte also ended on the 6th place, this time with Filippo T Z. This Flipper d'Elle son was bred by Jose Timmerman and is the half-brother of Caroline T Z, who jumps with Christophe Vanderhasselt at 1m50 level. This 6th place was not the only classification for Filippo T Z: on Friday the gelding was already 5th in the young horses class. There was also a 9th place for Alexandre Leriche with Cento Boy des Gy Z. This Cento Lano son is bred by Marie-Annick Giannitrapani & Nicolas Laude. That 9th place was not yet the highlight: on Friday this combination finished 7th already and on Saturday they even won the young horses class!

On Saturday there was also a first and second place for the Z-horses in the 1m40. In a class with 35 combinations, Romain Dreyfus managed to be the fastest with Niara d'Elsendam Z. This Nabab de Reve daughter was bred by François Verhulst and became second in the 1m35 on Friday! The second place went to Fairness Hero Z and Guillaume Foutrier. As her name suggests, Fairness Hero Z was bred by Luc Henry. This Flipper d'Elle daughter comes from the same dam line as All Star 5 and Don Darco de Bornival. Fairness’s dam, Canterel Z, is in turn a daughter of Rinnetou Z who finished second in the World Cup in Helsinki in 1993 with Piet Raijmakers.

In the 1m30 there was a 6th place for Anne Sophie Hemeryck Godart with Qarmina de Greenbay Z. This Qody de Saint-Aubert daughter is the sister of Si La Sol the Greenbay Z, who finished fifth last weekend in the 1m50 in the Sunshine Tour with Dominique Joassin. De Greenbay Z is the breeding of SPRL Eede from Eghezée. In the 1m35 on Friday there was, besides the second place of Romain Dreyfus with Niara d'Elsemdam Z, also a 6th place for Luis Ferreira with Trinidad du Mirador Z. This Toulon daughter was bred by Bertrand Darier and jumped on Friday also to a 9th place in the 1m35.
