Uther Pie Z

Gelding Skewbald 6 years old 1m65

General comments

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 (2017).

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.
