16 / 07 / 2017
 After two full days of assessing foals, the last lot of about two hundred will be judged on Saturday at the Z-Festival. On Sunday the 3-yr-olds will do their free jumping and both on Saturday and Sunday there are outdoor showjumping classes for the youngsters.


 Comilfo Plus Z continues to impress with his offspring at the Z-Festival. Yesterday one of his sons finished second, today one of his daughters, with the poetic name of Con Amore Z invented by her breeder Freddy Conings, became champion. The Conthargos x Diarado daughter Chardonnay Z finished second, before Twilight DB Z (Tangelo vd Zuuthoeve) from the Goen family, who claimed the championship yesterday with an Aganix. And also this Aganix du Seigneur Z is prominently present at this edition of the Z-Festival. After a victory in the fillies yesterday, today a son finished second in the B series. This is Alano de Landry Z from Lander Verwaest. Th victory went to the For Pleasure x Levisto colt Freaky Pleasure Z from the couple Bocken-Johansson. Studfarm 't Merelsnest claimed a third place with the Emerald son Emilio van 't Merelsnest Z, a cousin of VDL Glasgow van 't Merelsnest, who won the Nations Cup in Falsterbö at the same time.


 At 8.30 hours on Thursday the marathon of about six hundred foals was begun. In the first serie, just under a hundred young fillies, victory went to Arizona DB Z, a daughter of Aganix du Seigneur Z from the Goen family. Johan Thijs scored again with a second place for Charmdate JT Z (Chaccoon Blue) out of the full sister of Hardrock Z. Joris Van Dijck finished third with Chance J&F Champblanc Z (Cantesini), out of the dam of the licensed stallion Cashpaid (Casall). Via A Golden Boy Hero Z, Aganix du Seigneur Z also reached the top five as grandsire. Hanna Remans was the last super finalist in this series with a Comme Il Faut x Kannan and behind that a full sister of Big Star.

 In the finals for the young colts it was Cornet Obolensky time and again. Victory went to Come Back des Rosiers, a half-brother of the stallion Charmeur des Rosiers Z (Casall) this year licensed by sBs. Studfarm Zangersheide claimed a second place for Canada Z (Comilfo Plus Z) out of the full sister of As Cold As Ice Z (Artos Z). A Sir Obolensky Z, bred by the young Niels Staes, finished third and another two direct sons of Cornet completed the list.
