General comments

The sublime Iris Morinda was born on the 4th of May 2018 without asking anyone’s advice, as her mother, the lovely Athena Naf, decided to give birth out in the field, several days before her due date! A very easy delivery! Iris is the dream of all coloured horse breeders. She’s magnificently marked, well put together, lively and has an absolutely magnificent head…A total success, and with a bloodline and an equilibrium that is quite the exception! Iris is a V12, a war machine….. We intend to repeat the cross breeding as the Elphen stud, owner of her dam, has asked us to. We leased Athena Naf for Ulyss (who knows how to choose his mares).

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.

Iris’ mother, Athena Naf, is a daughter of Limbo, himself the sire of many high level performance horses, including Visage Van de Olmenhoeve to name just one! The mother of Athena Naf, Fazenda, is a daughter of Vaillant de Brecey who brings the blood of the Founding Father of the breed Le Tot de Semilly associated with that of the great Rantzau (through his best son, Starter). Fazenda produced JIVARO ACHUARA, ISO 146, who is thus a uterine brother of Athena, as well as another daughter, graded 120.
