Utah has Landgraf I blood through his father, Landetto, a 5 year champion at GESVES under the saddle of F> GALDINI then international winner under the saddle of K. GIELEN.

He has an excellent dam line which has produced several winners. In particular, his maternal grandmother Amira gave birth to a Grand Prix horse, Tabasco Van Erpekom (Darco). His mother, Lakotah, gave birth to another tobiano stallion, Willem Van Erpekom and his late grandmother, Omira, was the sister of the stallion, Fine Art, who is very well known in the USA (Grand Prix Dressage.).

At 10 years old, Utah came 2nd in a little Grand Prix (Sunshine Tour 2007), then 2nd also in a Royal Windsor CCI Grade A trial (11/05/07). In July 07, he won his 1st international trial at Geesteren by 1.50 m in front, amongst others, of Gerco Schröder, Jos Lansing and Ludger Beerbaum. And, at the start of August 2007, he signalled his first major victory by winning the Nestlé Masters (1.55 m) at the International competition at Sao Paulo organized by Athina Onassis.

Utah is now part of the very exclusive Grand Prix horses club.

Till now he has produced rather few as his owners have favoured his sporting career. Now, he is starting to be in high demand and we ought to see a lot of foals in the coming years. For us at the Morinda Breeding Stables, we are expecting three in 2008 with, thanks to the Fontanel Breeding Stables, some maternal stock which is amongst the best of French stock.
