Dominator 2000 Z, … since the turn of the century no horse has reached stardom as fast as the black stallion. And it is his dam who deserves all the credit.
Cephale 2000 was born in Holstein, Germany but she didn’t spend more than 6 months in the North. She quickly caught the eye of Tony Foriers, founder of Stud 2000, who didn’t hesitate an instant to buy her and to bring her to Belgium.
There she grew up in the herd of young horses and at the age of 2 she was covered by Diamant de Semilly. Before she had given any indication of her own natural talent or her dominance in breeding, she had presented her new owner with the holly grail, … a black stallion, a phenomenon, a Dominator.
As Dominator grew up in the fields, Cephale started her own career in showjumping. As she moved up through the ranks and competed in 1.40m classes as a 7 year old, Dominator turned 4 years old and had blown everyone away at the stallion approvals. A star was born and so the value of Cephale increased exponentially resulting in the decision to retire her as a sport horse and reinstate her as a world-class broodmare.
In that same year - 2014 - a son of Kannan of out Cephale was born, named Karmann 2000 Z. He would turn into Chephale’s 2nd liscenced stallion. From her first 5 foals, 4 have received the green light to breed as a stallion. With 5* Grand Prix winner Dominator 2000 Z just being the first and eldest offspring of Cephale the future holds many gifts for the legacy of this mare.
