Power and vigor characterise this immensely sporty young star, whose pedigree raises the lines of the century stallions Darco, Contender, Cantus, Ahorn Z and Cor de la Bryère to a new level. His licensing for Zangersheide in Peelbergen, Netherlands, was a demonstration of his superiority. Intelligence and courage paired with effervescence and the best reflexes. Aberdeen Z knows how to use his body and seems predestined for modern show jumping, which demands both jumping ability and speed. The sporttest for 4 year old stallions did Aberdeen Z with the final mark of 8,33 in Verden 2022.
The sire Aganix de Seigneur Z is a grandson of the Belgian Ambassadeur Darco through his sire Ogano Sitte. He placed under Jos Lansink/BEL in La Coruna/ESP, Mannheim/GER, Villach/AUT and Geesteren/NED. With his offspring he is present in the courses worldwide, such as the Wellington and Aachen SAP Prize winner Agana van het Gerendal Z/Lillie Keenan/USA, the Grand Prix winner Ayade Hero Z/Spencer Smith/USA, the Nations Cup third Akarad Hero Z/Pieter Clemens/BEL as well as Athletix Hero Z/Dermott Lennon/IRL, Attoucha/Paris Sellon/USA, Agadance van’t Geluut Z/Pieter Clemens/BEL and Maxwin Kinmar Agalux. Before she was used for breeding, his dam Cascada VI herself jumped up to 1.40 metres. Her half-sister Amina (by Cassini I) also placed internationally.
The Cantus son Canturo, Acord II and Cor de la Byrère follow in direct line – and thus probably the most important performance guarantors of Holstein show jumping breeding. The granddam L-Acarena is a half-sister to the 1.40 m show jumpers Ramira (by Ramirado), Cavalino (by Colman) and Klinsmann (by Clintord I). L-Acarena’s half-sister Cara Mia (by Colman) produced Piccolo S (by Pontifex)/Paolo Adamo Zuvadelli/ITA who placed in Vienna/AUT, Rome/ITA, Budapest/HUN and Arezzo/ITA. Her other half-sister Noblesse XIV (by Acord II) became dam of Toscana (by Clearway), who placed at 1.45 metres, and Santa Sophia (by Stakkato), who placed at 1.40 metres. Closely related are the licensed stallion Dallas du Domaine Z, who placed first with Wesley Heydens/NED in the Grand Prix of Amsterdam/NED and in the Nations Cup of Sopot/POL and continued his career under Suus Kuyten/NED, and JP’s Winzerin, who was initially ridden by Jörne Sprehe in Mannheim, Münster, Wiesbaden and Lan Lan, Münster, Wiesbaden and Lanaken/BEL, who subsequently won Youth Nations Cups under the young Marie Christine Sebesta/AUT, as well as Edeka’s Temple Moon/Mylène Nagel, Corazon/Jennifer Grumo/ITA, Kalif von Risum/Michael Fries/AUT and Bonita. The licensed and internationally successful Colbert GTI/Markus Renzel as well as the internationally placed show jumper Limerick W/Thomas Schepers also came out of the Holsteiner performance line 3556.
