General comments

Instagram Morinda was born on the 18th of May 2018. He is the full brother of Hydromel Morinda, but unlike Hydromel, he chose to ignore the colour of his parents and selected a beautiful chestnut coat, either inherited from Baloubet du Rouet, his dam’s grandfather, or possibly passed down by Ulyss from Laudanum.


This beautiful colt was brought up with Imperium Morinda until his sale. He left us as a yearling, was sold on at the start of his second year, and we found him again at the end of 2020. He was presented for the Selle Français Stallion qualifiers at Saint-Lô, where he demonstrated his superb style and potential. But we’ve decided to castrate him: he will be devoted to sport.


Instagram has the same character as Ulyss, extremely gentle and pliable. In his case, it was not gained from his mother who has a strong personality. But Ulyss always passes his character on to his youngstock.

Sire : Ulyss Morinda SF

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 confirmed his quality, at the start of the year being placed in the 3* 1m50 Grand Prix at Bonheiden only half a second behind Daniel Deusser, being placed 7th in the 1m50 Bourg en Bresse Show Jumping (4*) and soaring over the 1m55 course at Maubeuge with an unbelievable casual air. Still ridden by Rik Hemeryck, he was then placed in the 1m60 Grand Prix, and successfully participated in his first Nations’ Cup  (Gijon CSIO 5*) and obtained an ISO 160 in 2018.


In 2019 he continued to make progress : he was placed many times over 1m50 and 1m55, and won the 1m60 Grand Prix in the UK in front of Laura Kraut (see the News section). He also took part in his first 5* Rolex Grand Prix, and proved that he clearly has the capability to jump these courses. He obtained an ISO 163 for 2019, and in 2020, at only 12 years of age, has exceeded 100,000 Euros in winnings.

Dam : Karola Du Rouet AES

His mother, Karola du Rouet, is a daughter of Baloubet Jr (who reached the 1m60 level), himself a son of the famous Baloubet du Rouet with a mother by Darco. The blood of Galoubet A and Almé is blended in this other founding father, Darco: what a pedigree!


Karola du Rouet produced an approved stallion son as well as a daughter, Karola du Marome, who competes in 1m25 classes. She also has a uterine brother named Clochard, an absolutely stunning coloured stallion who competed up to 1m45 CSI, before being sold to a wealthy amateur in the USA.


 


 

Second dam : Karola

Karola, by Zortin, produced a very charistmatic stallion in CLOCHARD, who competed successfully in classes up to 1m45 with Pim Mulder (NLD) before going to the USA.

Third dam : Karola

Karola (of the same name) by Flaneur. Amongst her descendants it’s worth noting Belu’ga who jumped up to 1m45 level.
