Vision Morinda (renamed Re Vision Morinda Z) was born in the purple
on the 17th of June 2009. She is a daughter of Ringo and Scarlett
Fontanel. Scarlett’s mother, and thus Vision’s grandmother, Fantine
du Defey (Elite CSO) is the grand daughter of the famous INULA, the
Grand Prix mare ridden by Jacques Bonnet, and uterine sister of
that very great champion FLAMBEAU C, and above all of the famous
CAMERA, by Rantzau, who produced amongst others the stallion Muguet
du Manoir. One of the best Selle Francais families.
Vision is the result of an embryo transfer which gave her a twin
brother, Vidocq Morinda (ISO 125 as a five year old and today a
stallion, sold to Belgium), born to another surrogate mother. She
is also the most extraordinary Tobiano mare we have ever
She caused quite a shock when she arrived in the world. No-one was
expecting Vision, who doesn’t have a single drop of Appaloosa blood
in her veins, to have inherited a coat that is so far from the
normal. She is a ‘fleabitten’ Pie, and the most astonishing aspect
is that the fleabites, which are incredibly numerous, are also
present on her blaze and stockings.
In April 2014, “Re Vision Morinda Z” had a well marked male Pie
with lots of bone by the excellent Canturo. We have named him
Cantor Morinda Z. This big colt is full of spirit and we are
hopiing he is going to turn out to be out of the ordinary.
Cantor Morinda Z, has been sold for 65,000 Euros at the Fences
Elite Sales in August 2017. He is off for the USA and will without
a doubt be kept as a stallion.
Vision was inseminated in 2014 by Troubadour By Wisbecq ( out of
Troubadour d’Aurel), and a superb filly was born on the 25th of
April 2015; welcome to Triskele Morinda Z, just as sweet natured as
In 2016 Vision was sent to a young 4 year old stallion whose papers
had seduced us, Cambiaso Massuere. He is none other than a son of
the famous LONDON (ridden by Gerco Schroder and named Eurocommerce
London then Glock’s London). His mother is a daughter of Arc de
Triomphe and Estrella Del Dia, who is herself none other than the
mother of NERVOSO. We learnt with great sorrow of the passing of
this beautiful stallion at the end of 2016.
Vision gave us a splendid filly on 2 April, 2017, Houston TX
Morinda, with a chestnut coat and absolutely exceptional paces: she
could be directed towards Dressage, even though she has evidently
been born for show jumping.
Vision has been covered again and is in foal to Ulyss Morinda for
2018! We are in a hurry to see the results of this cross!
Fantine du Defey
Tess du Defey
Her father Ringo, also carrying the blood of Furioso, is inbred on
Samber and thus on Pericles. In effect, his paternal grandmother,
Wanda, is the full sister of Samber. And on his maternal side his
grandmother Cindy is a daughter of Samber.
Samber has been called a “World Wide Legend” by the American
Nathalie Kilpatrick. He reached Grand Prix level in dressage and as
well as that level Z (BSJA Grade A) over fences. To this day he is
still the oly coloured stallion ever to have been admitted to the
KWPN stud book.
Pericles XX (the sire of Samber) won many races and was just as
well known in show jumping circles. He was named “Keur” in 1976 and
“Preferent” in 1977. He is one of the two XX stallions (along with
Lucky Boy XX) having the best KWPN produce.
Vision has an extraordinary maternal line ! Her mother Scarlett
Fontanel is by the foundation stallion Diamant de Semilly, and out
of Fantine du Defey, by Laudanum.
Her grand-mother Fantine du Defey , classified “Elite CSO” by the
French Haras Nationaux, is the grand-daughter of the celebrated
Inula, the Grand Prix mare of Jacques Bonnet and uterine sister of
the supreme champion FLAMBEAU C, as are other international horses
(Roi du Manoir, Jupiter AK and the famous Camera, by Rantzau who
sired, amongst others, the stallion Muguet du Manoir).
Her great grand mother Tess du Defey (daughter of Inula) sired
several great winners, stallion and even a "Horse of the Year" in
the US !
