Concorde comes from very strong jumping lines on both sides. Sire of this stallion, who in jumping circles is known as Olympic Concorde, is the impressive
dominant breeding stallion Voltaire, who via his sire Furioso II and Gotthard is bred to perform. Voltaire is the number 2 in the World Breeding Rankings for
Showjumping Sires in 1996.
Voltaire through the performances of his offspring stands very high in both the dressage and jumping indexes. Due to his high ranking position, Voltaire was
given the "keur" and "preferent" predicates at a very early age.
Concorde's dam, Flyer, is by the legendary Marco Polo, one of the most influential Dutch stallions in breeding and jumping with representatives such as: Irco Polo,
Pybalia, Marius, Orpheus, Mr LA, Pierrot and Recruut.
Flyer is related to the international jumper Vivaldi, which under Melanie Smith was speed horse of the Year in 1980.
Concorde's mother Flyer produced at least 6 (inter)national jumpers.
Concorde himself was an international jumper with Jos Lansink. They won the Grand Prix of Nordrhein-Westfalen at Aken and they were Champion of the Netherlands in 1994,
2nd in the Grand Prix of Amsterdam, 2nd Darmstadt, 2nd Lanaken, 2nd Helsinki and 2nd Gothenburg.
Concorde was the sire with the most offspring at the World Breeding Championships for young horses in 1995. Concorde already has famous offspring on the international
circuit: e.g. Grace (Nona Garson), Humpfrey (Franke Sloothaak), Gracia (Carolijn Lancaster) and Holland (Eddie Macken). Furthermore COncorde has an incredible list of
offspring in 1.40 m. courses and numerous approved sons: Jumbo Jet, Cassini, Holland, Lagano's Double, Kastello, Jacorde, Joyrider, Jazz and Lorenzo.
