The death of Classic Orange Z

15 September 2020

Zangersheide's promising 5-year-old, Classic Orange Z (Cornet Obolensky x Calido), out of Coupe de Cœur’s full sister and a maternal half-sister to Russel, died last week from an inguinal hernia.

Bought by Zangersheide at the Westphalian approval event, the bay had proven to be one of the most popular stallions among Zangersheide's young prospects and had convinced many breeders to use him.

One of his sons, Carinjo vd Holstenhoeve, won the Z Festival last year in the senior male category before being acquired by Paul Schockemoehle's breeding station at the Quality Auction.
