Calgary H Morinda Z (alias Houston Tx Morinda) Z

Female Chestnut 3 years old 1m70

General comments

On the 2nd of Arpil 2017 our magnificent Vision Morinda presented us with her new filly, eleven days early, a true oil painting with an arabian head. Houston TX Morinda is a daughter of the much missed Cambiaso Massuere, who died aged only 4 when he seemed ready for an extraordinary future.

He was the only son of the crack horse LONDON (born Carembar de Muze) approved in the European Stud Book. London is a son of the foundation stallion Nabab de Rêve and the famous World Cup mare Ta Belle de Sombeke, ridden by Jos Lansink.

The dam of Cambiaso Massuere is a daughter of Arc de Triomphe and Estrella Del Dia, by GALOUBET A. She produced the excellent stallion, Nervoso.

Houston has the genetics, the physique and the energy to become a crack horse. We are hoping she’ll go far.

Her mother Vision Morinda gives up nothing, to the genetic side of Cambiaso Massuere. You can see her detailed file in “Coloured Broodmares” on this site. Her bloodline takes her back to the grand champion Flambeau C and to his celebrated sister CAMERA. Houston, a ravishing filly, with great lines and who seems to have much spirit has without doubt been named after her famous grandfather. We searched for the name of a dynamic town, beginning with H and Houston particularly pleased us as it is the 4th city in the US by area, and also is home to NASA – Space City! Everyone inows the famous reply from Jack Swigert (Apollo 13) “Houston, we’ve had a problem” which is often misquoted as “Houston we have a problem”…. We wish that Houston, this splendid filly, will also fly as far as the astronauts of Apollo 13 and show as much courage as they did. In any case, for the moment, her mother Vision never lets her out of her sight, being visibly mad with love for her daughter.

At the beginning of 2019, Houston became a very lovely two year old which you could classify as impressive.  She will be very big, always high spirited and has a great movement.  She could carve out a career in CSO as much as in CCE or even in Dressage.

In 2020, as a three year old, Houston is fulfilling all her promise. She is having fun already jumping small obstacles all alone in the school : a way of amusing her at least until she decided to start training. In any case, she is very intelligent, afraid of nothing and we are counting on her to bring honour to the Morinda stud and her parents. She has enough energy to become a star and we hope she will go far.

Houston TX will be covered in 2020 by ULYSS MORINDA (ISO 163) to give us a foal before she begins competing as a five year old in 2022.

As a granddaughter of crack LONDON, Houston TX Morinda combines in her pedigree the blood of Diamant de Semilly, Laudanum, Uriel but also Nabab de Reve, Landor S and Galoubet… An absolutely exceptional pedigree with a blood line that takes her back to Flambeau C and Camera !

Her uterine brother, Cantor Morinda Z, eldest son of Vision Morinda, has been sold for 65,000 Euros at the Fences Elite Sales in August 2017. He is off for the USA.

Houston TX, along with Ulyss Morinda, represents the best genetics of all the foals we’ve bred. The crossing of these two should produce something exceptional.
