General comments

The very beautiful Ithaque Morinda came into the world on the 22nd of April 2018! She is a very well born filly (see further down) and as a bonus, is very well marked. She’s a very sweet natured filly who is being looked after with much love by her mother Nantua. You can see why we’ve named her Ithaque - Ithaca is the Greek island of which Ulyss was the king…..The name was earmarked for the very first coloured filly Ulyss has given us!


In January 2019, Ithaque became a yearling.  She has a splendid trot with great elevation, a good gallop and a character of gold.  She’s very close to people.  She will also be exceptionally large if she continues growing at the present rate.

Pedigree

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.


Her mother, the superb Nantua, “a Selle Francais original” and already mother to Utika graded 129, passes on to Ithaque an inbreeding to the famous Jalisco B, who is also the maternal grandfather of Ulyss Morinda! The maternal bloodline of Nantua is without a doubt most impressive. She herself has uterine brothers and sisters with good grading (of which the stallion Ultrason d’Ars has more than 15,000 Euros of winnings already at the start of his year as a ten year old in 2018). But above all her grandmother Sentinelle has magnificent offspring : For example her daughter Away Pierreville, mother of the famous stallion LUCCIANNO (ISO 177) and many other descendants graded in the first or second generation over 145 or 150. There are so many that we’ve lost count. For example her daughter Graziella II (ISO 145), Kiara, mother of Tzigano Massuere (ISO 156)….A high quality family, very succesful and to be seen on the biggest and best showgrounds.
