Vizir Morinda Z, february 2013 :

Vizir Morinda, born on 27th April 2008 is a handsome, very sporty foal, by Visage van de Olmenhoeve (Copabella Visage) and the KWPN mare Stacy, by Samber ! He has a very easy going nature, tame and seems curious about everything !

He is called Vizir, first of all because he is registered in the Zangersheide stud-book which requires foals to have a name beginning with their father's initial and then because we found that this name really suited this confident, kind foal! We can imagine an entourage of courtesans !

Vizir Morinda Z

Vizir is growing fast, has a lot of energy and seems particularly keen on trips in the lorry !

Christelle saw the photos of Vizir on our website and … she fell in love at first sight. She telephoned us, jumped in a plane and came and bought the youngster, who she asked us to bring up for her. She has been coming to visit him regularly and Vizir has blossomed, being still full of vigour and more and more like his sire, Visage, as time passes. He was once the double of Ulyss. These two “teenagers” have grown up together. Vizir has been castrated, but not Ulyss, although one might suspect that Vizir was the future stallion.

When Vizir was three, he rejoined Ulyss at Alexandre Goar’s yard, where he was broken in then progressed to preparing for his season as a four year old. He very soon showed us that he had a huge scopey jump and an exceptional ability over fences. He jumps like a cat – supple and extremely gifted. Christelle made no mistake in choosing him.

As for her mother Stacy, she has given birth in 2013 to a true sister to Vizir, a superb filly named Daylight Morinda.

In March 2013, Vizir has just started out in the five year old Classics at Verquigneul ridden by Pierre Cabochette. The very least we are able to say is that he has made his mark, with his enormous jump and his incredible energy which strongly reminds us of his sire, VISAGE. Vizir looks and behaves amazingly like him.

We repeated the crossbreeding for sure, and in 2013 her mother Stacy gave us a full sister to Vizir, a superb filly named Daylight Morinda, then in 2014, a colt named Excel Morinda whom we judge to be MAGNIFICENT. Stacy is in foal once more to Visage for 2015.

In 2013, Vizir was passed to the rider Pierre Cabochette. The very least one can say is that he has made himself very noticeable with his scopy jump and his incredible energy that reminds us of his father, VISAGE. Vizir possesses an uncanny resemblance to him.

At the end of 2014, Vizir rejoined Stephan Lafouge's stable - the international rider who rode his father Visage in the Nations' Cup. Together they were placed in numerous high level competitions, amongst which was the 2010 La Baule CSIO before Visage returned to Australia. Here's hoping that Vizir Morinda Z will follow in his footsteps......
