Cevin Z, one of the Billy Stud stables’ top performance stallions at stud is standing at West Kington Stud this season. Left to William Funnel by his owner Heather MacPherson, he was proving himself as a talented performance horse. His strength was certainly in his temperament and consistency, and his six year old season in 2003 indicated just how talented this horse was when he achieved fourth place in the Foxhunter Championship at the Horse of the Year Show.
This handsome grey Holstein performance horse stallion ridden by William Funnel in 2007 took a purse of £8,000 at Lisbon, Vimeiro, Chantilly and at home taking the top ribbons in the County Shows. William was convinced that Cevin Z would make a top Grand Prix horse whose first progeny in 2007 where already showing the same potential and great temperament of Cevin Z.
This lovely horses big circuit career was cut short by a fetlock injury in 2008. However, his breeding and his successful progeny say everything about him as a performance stallion at stud.
Bred at the Zanersheide Stud in Belgium, he has the outstanding bloodlines that Zangersheide is justly famous. Cevin Z has double crosses of Cor de la Bryere and Capitol 1. He was top priced foal when he was sold in 1997 to Heather MacPherson. Cevin Z’s sire, Coriall Z, is one of the top stallions of the Zangersheide Stud, with a BLUP of 127 for show jumping, as well as two graded sons. His dam, Larthago by Carthago Z (9 graded sons), was an international show jumper and her progeny have fetched high prices in Europe.
