Ze Carioca was bred by Rodrigo’s father Nelson Pessoa in Belgium. He is a lovely and talented stallion that is a real joy to work with. Nelson’s attention to detail and dedication have led to Ze’s incredible temperament. We look forward to see what the future holds for this talented young stallion.
Ze had a great season in Wellington. He was very consistent at the 1.40 and 1.45 level. He continues to be wonderful to work with and he takes his job seriously. He is a stallion but you would hardly know it!
- Ze is named for a Brazilian cartoon character. A Carioca is someone that originally hails from Rio de Janeiro (like the Pessoas)
- Ze is owned by a group of family members and close friends
- He has a large heart and an even larger stride
