Zenith UHS - Show Jumping Stallion At Stud Scotland UK 2011

Lupricor NimmerdorZenith UHS perhaps the most exciting young show jumping stallion in the UK, showing tenacity and skill in the ridden field. Athletic ability coupled with tremendous scope, striking good looks, strength in his model and correctness of limbs, this bright bay stallion sired by the illustrious "Lupicor" is consistently proving that his inherited genes are propelling him into the spotlight and definitely one to watch out for.

Zenith was purchased in Holland by Upper Haddo Stud and was successfully licensed with the AES Stud Book in 2008.

Having already earned over £1300 in BSJA winnings in just nine months with a fabulous 2nd place at the Addington five year old finals with fences measuring 1.35m, Zenith will be striving for a qualifying place at the prestigous foxhunter finals in 2010 under saddle with one of the UK's leading riders Scott Brash.

LupricorZenith's sire "Lupicor" (Lux Z x Pilot x Cor de la Bryere) was born in 1995 and was bred by the Schroembges family in Wellerlooi (Limburg). The bay stallion, bred out of the famous Pilot daughter Jourdette S was approved at the age of 2 for the Westfalen studbook.

Lupicor stood at stud with the German stallion producer Heinrich Dowe until his return to the Wiemselbach in 2001. The talented son of Lux Z then competed successfully in National classes as well as in the Dutch stallion competitions under the saddle of Rogier Linssen. Based on the success of his jumping performances he was approved by the KWPN.

After his International jumping career with riders Ben Schröder and Marco Kutscher, Lupicor became a world class breeding stallion. His first offspring in Westfalen were very promising and soon after Lupicor was able to make his mark in the Dutch breeding industry by producing many champions in foal and mare inspections and the stallion approvals. Lupicor belongs to the best 1% of all German stallions and has a very high breeding index in Holland.

LupricorLupicor’s sire "Lux Z" was a successful stallion in International show jumping. With Jerry Smit, Lux Z participated in the 2000 Sydney Olympics and won the Pulsar Crown competitions in Valkenswaard and Cannes. This brought Lux Z's total winnings to more than a million Euros. His sire, Lord Calando (Lord), is just like the world-famous jumping stallion Carthago Z (Capitol I), bred out of Perra (Calando I).

However aside from his fabulous sire line, as any calculating breeder will know the success of many a great stallions is very much based on the contributing factor of the mother line and this is perhaps what makes this young stallion really stand out from many.

Usrina BurgraafHis dam the Ster mare "Jorina" by Nimmerdor, crowned stallion of the century and one of the most influential progenitors of sport horses in the last century, was herself competed successfully up to 1.50m in show jumping but also produced seven progeny including Torina VDL currently jumping Grand Prix's in the USA.

Jorina's sons and daughters were often selected for the elite auctions in Holland. "Carinus" by Cartano was selected and sold at the elite auction Dronthen, with Vincent by Corland, full brother Wibault" and Usrina by Burgraff were selected and sold at the elite Star Select auction in 2001. "Usrina" fetched one of the top prices of 13,500 euros and has since gone on to jump successfully up to 1m40 whilst Sorina by Indorado and Vincent by Corland have results at 1.50m and Wibault successfully placing at Z level.

Zenith's maternal grand dam the Keur Preferent mare Worina (Porter x Marco Polo) produced sixteen progeny many of which were awarded the ster predicate and proved themselves in the field of sport. From this mare line we find also the Canadian Sports Horse approved stallion “Watch Out”By Balou Du Rouet.

The preferent stallion Joost was a top progenitor of show jumpers and was highly ranked on the index with a breeding value of 148. He had many international offspring including the approved stallions Hay Guy, Palfrenier, Ommen, VIP, and Carrera, Attentz B, Satchmo, Jongger II, and Germus R.

In addition his pedigree contains the blood of Pilot, Caletto I, Graphit, Cor De La Bryere, Ahorn, and the influential Thoroughbred blood of Rantzau, Cottage Son, Ladykiller and Koridon

As a young stallion Zenith's stud fee of only £450 provides breeders access to a gene pool of world class jumping bloodlines at a fabulous rate. Zenith will be competing once again in the 2010 season with Young Rider Scott Brash and can be viewed at numerous venues throughout the season. Zenith UHS's first foals are due in spring 2010.
