Amiro Z jumped internationally at 1.45m level, including qualifying for the Lanaken World Championships for 6-year-olds. He is a stallion with an enormous jumping potential and a well geared canter; a blood horse with a remarkably good temperament. The contribution of thoroughbred blood is crucial for eventing sport at the top level and Amiro Z combines enough blood with a very high quality type.
Amiro's father Amigo Toss xx goes back directly to the mother of the famous stallion Le Sancy xx, the progenitor of Ramzes and Zeus. Amigo Toss was an Argentinian stallion brought in by Zangersheide to add some blood to the Holsteiner lines. He stood with Zangersheide for many years and was very successful in refining their showjumping mares.
Amiro's dam Renomee Z jumped at the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996, and the 1998 World Cup, with Argentinian Ricardo Kierkegaard. Amiro Z's damsire, the legendary Ramiro Z, earned the titles 'Stallion of the Century' and 'King of Sires'. He competed at the highest level, with numerous grand prix wins, jumping in Nations Cup and Puissance classes, clearing over 2.20m. Renomee's full-sister Ratina Z is one of the most successful jumping horses of all time, with almost €1million lifetime earnings, two Olympic team gold medals and an individual silver, double gold at the 1997 European Championships, team gold at the 1994 WEG, and victory in the Aachen grand prix with German stalwart Ludger Beerbaum.
Amiro's grand-dam Argentina Z is a daughter of the great Alme Z, who not only competed at top level, but had many exceptional offspring, including Galoubet, Jalisco B and I Love You. Alme Z is also the grandsire of prolific eventing sire and Olympic showjumper Jaguar Mail. Argentina's dam Heureka jumped to grand prix herself, winning the Aachen grand prix before producing the licensed sons Ahorn Z and Goliath Z (who jumped to 1.50m level) in addition to Argentina.
Amiro's offspring are bold characters with good temperaments, inheriting their sire's jump and power they are now proving themselves on the international stage. His Daughter Caunton First Class, from a Valentino dam, recently placed 4th at Osberton CCI3* was also the 2018 Westfalen eventing champion, and champion of her age group. Amichora Z has had 12 top 10 placings this year with half of those ranking 1st or 2nd place at FEI 1.25m - 1.35m. His son Corimiro has recently placed first in two FEI CCI2*. Amiro Island placed 5th this year in FEI CCI2*. Argo Z this year placed 3rd at FEI 1.30m. A Quality D’I Z competed upto FEI 1.40m.
