Cantor Morinda Z, born on the 12th of April 2014, has absolutely
exceptional origins. Our superb mare Vision presented us with a
foal of importance and solidity, brimming with energy and with both
size and good bone. One would not call him a “first foal”. Straight
away we thought that this magnificent male, who has also inherited
the coloured coat of his mother, would be being talked about before
Cantor grew without any problems and with a very attentive mother
who never let him out of her sight. Following this, he was sold in
Belgium but….his destiny was to go much further. In fact, now a
three year old, Cantor Morinda Z was chosen to be presented by
Fences, during their Elite Sales.
He went first at the beginning of the first evening (on the 29th of
August 2017). The bidding took off immediately…I should point out
that Cantor has inherited the strength of Diamant de Semilly and
also the movement on the poles of his sire Canturo ! If one adds to
that the wonderful suppleness and courage of our youngster…. Cantor
made a great show and attained the satisfying sum of 65,000 euros,
bought by american clients who, it seems, wanted him a very great
deal! Worth noting is the fact that the second bidder was also an
Have a good voyage, Cantor! We are expecting to see you one day in
CSI, perhaps even in Europe.

His father, the fantastic Canturo, winner of the European Grand
Prix at Aix la Chapelle and of Spruce Meadows (Calgary), holder of
dozens of international placings and a member of the Olympic Team
in Athens, is one of the best of current stallions. He can number
58 of his progeny competing in CSI and there will certainly be
plenty more in the years to come.
His dam, Vision Morinda Z, born Vision Morinda, a daughter of Ringo
and Scarlett Fontanel, has in fact passed a CSIO blood line on to
Cantor. His mother, Scarlett Fontanel, is the daughter of the
founding father of the race Diamant de Semilly and of Fantine du
Defey, who is by Laudanum and out of Uriel. And Fantine du Defey is
none other than the grand daughter of INULA, a daughter of the
famous Narcisse, thus a uterine sister to CAMERA and FLAMBEAU C.
Cantor’s blood line is presented on this site as a PDF.
His maternal grandfather Ringo adds the blood line of Pericles to
this pedigree, and consequently also of Ulft. Pericles XX (the
father of Samber) is one of the two XX stallions (with Lucky Boy
XX) who have produced the best KWPN progeny. The production of his
grandson ULFT is phenomenal, and one can find this stallion’s name
in a large number of pedigrees of horses competing at top levels.
For example, the famous HICKSTEAD, the world number one dressage
horse of his generation, and the famous ‘Olympic Ferro’, whose sire
