Silvy Z joined the family in April 2014. She's a very classy
lady very sweet natured with exceptional bloodlines, a real
gem and a very rare find. Her sire is the late legend Sandro
Z, sire of Sandro Song, grand sire to Sandro Hit. Her dam
sire is the great Zeus and her maternal grand sire Glendale
As her pedigree would imply she has an valuable addition
to our breeding program. Silvy has three good paces with an
especially good canter.
Silvy is scanned in foal to Amoureux for 2015
Sandro Z was quite unique in that he is
the only stallion son of the cross of Sacramento Song and
Wahnfried – a cross that has also been very successful
in producing dams of stallions.
The stallions Lavell I, & II, Atlantas Z, Campione, and
the international jumping horses, Cathleen, ridden by Meredith
then Michael Beerbaum and Zigeunerin ridden by Rodrigo Pessoa
all came from the same cross.
Sandro’s dam, Dürte was a the full sister of one
of the most successful Puissance horses of all time –
Wabbs. Durte was also the dam of Harvey Smith’s Salvador.
The most successful of his sons was the great Sandro Boy
ridden by Marcus Ehning who made history in the global show
jumping: with over 1.2 million Euro in competition winnings

include Isabell Werth’s Satchmo by the Sandro son, Sao
Paulo. Sorento and Furstenball all carry the blood of Sandro.

Ramiro Z Over a period of of thirty years,
