Bred at the prestigious Zangersheide Stud in Belgium, Renegade Z top-scored for jumping at his 30-day test in Neustadt Dosse.

An injury cut short his successful jumping career in Europe, but opened up the possibility for this magnificently bred and highly talented horse to come to Australia. In doing so he has brought with him a wealth of opportunity for Australian breeders, with his pedigree that reads like a pot-pourri of the best European lines.

Renegade Z's sire is Ramiro Z, who following an international show-jumping career has earned the titles 'Stallion of the Century' and 'King of Sires' whilst standing at stud in Germany, Belgium and Holland. Ramiro Z is of course the sire of Ratina Z, gold and silver Olympic and WEG medallist; as well as many other top-class performers. He also happens to be the grandsire of Loretta, who is the dam of Sandro Hit, Diamond Hit and Royal Hit; the super-sires of dressage breeding. This comes as no surprise, given the well-documented preponderance of jumping bloodlines in dressage horses.

Renegade Z's damline is no less impressive. His damsire is Quidam de Revel, pre-eminent jumping sire as well as Olympic performer himself. And Renegade Z's grand-dam Calanda Z is full-sister to top stallions Calando I-V, sired by the incomparable Cor de la Bryere, one of the most influential sires in modern warmblood breeding. Renegade Z's entire family is littered with elite performers and licensed breeding stock, and the signs from his progeny so far are that the tradition is set to continue.

His European progeny include Red Classic, accepted into the Vechta Elite auction; and Ruswil who is happily jumping 1.6m in Europe (see We are quietly excited as his first progeny under saddle in Australia are making their appearance, and we are as always delighted to make available a stallion of this superlative quality to Australian breeders.
