Uther Pie Z, born on the 29th of March 2014, is the very first
male offspring of Ulyss Morinda. And the least we can say is that
Ulyss can’t deny his son : he has truly marked him…In fact they
look very much like one another. The same head and the same
extraordinarily gentle character.
Physically, as well as his wonderful balance, Ulyss has passed
on to Uther his scopey jump, his energy, his markings and his great
suppleness, not forgetting his magnificent bascule. Uther is
also very intelligent and never makes the same mistake twice!
It only remains for us to wish for this handsome colt a similar
career to his father!
As a five year old, Uther reinfoces : his great energy, his
willingness, his respect and as always his superb bascule. He
has an exceptional trot, and an excellent gallop, just like his
father (the well known Jalisco gallop) and he should surprise us!
He started official competitions on his fifth birthday, March
29th 2019. Like Ulyss at the same age, nothing upsets
him and he jumps all types of fences as though he already had ten
years of experience under his belt.

His father Ulyss Morinda, 5 * at the CIRALE, comes from base
bloodline that was marked 8 out of 10 by the Selle Français
studbook. The line goes back to the Grand Prix mare Utricule (by
Monceaux, TB) and then to her daughter Piperazine Laleu, mother of
several excellent horses. Ulyss is a carrier of 5 Thoroughbred
blood lines, one of which is the famous Laudanum but there’s also
Ladykiller, Furioso, Pericles and Monceaux. As a maternal
grandfather he also has Jalisco B whom he very much resembles. You
can go to his page to see the details of his wonderful bloodline
and photos and videos of his performances. Ulyss Morinda, Hunter
Champion of France as a six year old came back to his true
discipline, the CSO in 2015 as a seven year old.
Ridden from now on by Rik Hemeryck (a Belgian), he won the Young
Stallions SF Masters for seven year olds (classed as ‘Very
Promising’ by the ANSF) and at nine years old, he was already a
winner and had been placed in numerous outings in 1.50m classes
(CSI 3*). He took part in his first CSI 5* in Rotterdam in June
2017 and his first 1.55m at the end of the year. He is ISO 150
In 2018, Ulyss is confirming his quality, being placed 2nd at
the start of the year in the 1.50m (3*) Grand Prix at Bonheiden
(just half a second off Daniel Deusser), placed 7th in the 1.50m
Bourg en Bresse Show Jumping (4*) and jumping in the 1.55m at
Maubeuge with and incredible effortlessness. He is now performing
in Grand Prix 1,60 m.
In 2019 he confirmed his position once again : he’s been placed
several times over 1m50/1m55, and won a 1m60 Grand Prix in England
(see the section News). He’s also taken part in his first 5*
Rolex Grand Prix and proved he has the ability to jump anything he
meets at this level.
The mother of Uther, Idylle des Touches, competed in amateur
classes and brings the blood of Nykio (father of the Olympian horse
Bayard de Maupas) and of course of the famous TANAGRA, mother of
the founding father of the breed Jalisco B. Seeing as Ulyss Morinda
is himself a grandson of Jalisco B, we find in Uther Pie Z an
inbreeding of the extraordinary mare Tanagra! Idylle also passes
down to her son Uther two other Thoroughbred blood lines, the lines
of RAKOSI (through his son Kayack) and of DIAGHILEV.
