Air Jordan Alpha Z
Meanwhile, Air Jordan Alpha Z has become a fixed asset in the Zangersheide stallion collection. With him we can offer the breeders an alternative after the unfortunate death of Air Jordan Z, who built a fantastic career in the Zangersheide colours with Daniel Deusser in the saddle.
Like we said, Air Jordan Z himself was exceptionally successful with Daniel Deusser. Together they won the GPs of Den Bosch, Braunschweig and Deauville. And it was Air Jordan Z who blessed Daniel Deusser with his first Global Champions Tour victory, which was in Valkenswaard. To top it all off, in 2007 this duo came 2nd in the World Cup final in Las Vegas!
We decided to clone Air Jordan Alpha Z because he proved to be so exceptional both in the sport as well as in breeding. So when Air Jordan Z died at a young age we were very happy we still had his clone available for breeding. These days we see that Air Jordan Alpha Z’s breeding is identical to the original and he has produced his first sport horses. Looking at his offspring like Identity Vitseroel, Alfa Jordan and Air Jumper B Z, we notice that all of them stem from mares with a lot of blood.
How would you yourself use Air Jordan Alpha Z, we ask Judy Ann. ‘In my own breeding I’ve already used Air Jordan Alpha Z quite a lot. The ideal combination for Air Jordan Alpha Z is a mare with lots of blood and preferably with a bit of an uphill canter and good natural balance. Length in canter is passed on by him. That consistently results in the best sport horses!’
