Solid Gold Z

‘Christian and I spotted Solid Gold Z at his breeder’s yard in Germany’, Judy Ann begins, ‘We were instantly convinced that this was a horse with the true X-factor. He’s still one of our favourites. He is such a positive horse, so easy to ride and with such a soft mouth.’

Solid Gold Z is a Stakkato son out of the Calvin Z mare Callinda Z. She is the sister of Rimini Z, who took part in the ECs in Mannheim and San Patrignano and the World Equestrian Games in Aachen. Callinda Z is also the sister of Kevin Staut’s 1.60m Gastronom de Hus and dam of the 1.50m Cevin Costner. As a youngster Solid Gold Z was one of the most eye-catching horses in the world. He excelled in every international Youngster Tour, kept clean records in 21 out of 29 courses and won four times. The crowning touch was when he became World Champion 7-year-olds in Lanaken under Christian Ahlmann. There’s no better way to finish a career in the youngster circuit. And the start at the highest level was similarly successful for Solid Gold Z, a few months later he stayed clean in the 5*GP of Mechelen and a month later he won his first World Cup in Abu Dhabi!

Solid Gold Z is a unique sport stallion who has constantly performed very well in top sports for years, his percentage of fault-free courses is stunning. He is always at the ready! ‘Over the years Solid Gold Z has more or less acted in the shadow of his frequent competition companion Dominator Z. But when looking at his results and his sport mentality, he is truly amazing. He can arrive at a 5* event and straightaway go for victory on the first day. But he may just as well triumph in the GP on the very last day of the competition!’ Along with a 9 for blood, Solid Gold Z scores 9s on quality, technique, balance and rideability too. ‘Solid Gold Z is a true sire. His jumping is not super spectacular to look at, but he always knows how to jump the most taxing fences in a straightforward way. I prefer to use him on big-framed mares with capacity. He will provide blood, suppleness and technique.’
