The presentation of Dominator Z on Saturday was one of the highpoints of the stallion presentation. On Sunday the sequence was different and Dominator Z was the first in the ring. He was scheduled for transport at Liège Airport and straight after his appearance the stallion left for Doha where he would stay for a fortnight and clocked a 4th place in the 5*GP. ‘In the past years Dominator Z had to combine his stud services with the sport in order to meet the huge demand of the breeders. This year he won´t be standing stud and the full focus will be on top sports. The list of successes this young stallion has amassed in such a short time is phenomenal (background roll of honour Domi). Naturally, we´re very pleased to offer two of his sons for stud services this year, Querido Z and D’Aganix Z.’
Judy Ann: ‘We purchased Querido Z at last year´s stallion inspection because we were impressed with his unique capacity combined with that typical Dominator jumping style. Almost all Dominator offspring seem to copy that special technique their sire has. After his first stud season last year Querido Z was broken into saddle at the end of October. So he´s been under saddle for just a few months but already shows phenomenal jumps.’ Judy Ann is beaming and adds ‘It´s simply unbelievably good.’
Dominators make women radiate joy so it seems, because also Judy Ann’s best friend Kirsten Rombouts had a smile on her face when she started jumping with D’Aganix Z (Dominator Z – Aganix du Seigneur Z). Afterwards we heard Kirsten sing the praise of D’Aganix Z to anyone she ran into. ‘D’Aganix Z is truly something special’ Judy Ann begins: ‘He is the first foal by Dominator Z and just like his dad was bred by Tony Foriers. Back then Tony was so convinced of the quality of his young stallion Dominator Z that he paired him to his mare Andiamixa Hero Z even before the stallion was approved. The result is D’Aganix Z.’ ‘As a sport horse D’Aganix Z has an exceptional mentality and the right character. He wants to jump zero penalties and does exactly that. For a whole season he jumped under Michael Korompis at various national and international events and time and time again he finished with a clean record.’ After each fence the audience in Lanaken gave D’Aganix Z a spontaneous applause and the smile on Kirsten´s face grew bigger and bigger. ‘I bet I know what Michael and Kirsten will be discussing in the next few days. Normally, Michael is D’Aganix Z´s regular rider but I´m not so sure he´ll get him back’, Judy Ann concludes with a laugh.
