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 seen. 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.
Vision was inseminated in 2014 by Troubadour d'Aurel (Troubadour
By Wisbecq), and a superb filly was born on the 25th of April 2015;
welcome to Triskele Morinda Z, just as sweet natured as her mum. In
2019, Trislele is ready for her first shows and is showing an
impressive quality. She is our future !
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.
At the start of May 2018 Vision finally gave us a very big
coloured colt by Ulyss Morinda. Imperator Morinda is an adorable
colt, as were his parents and his older brothers and sisters.
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 !
