He is son of Concorde, a horse which had gathered outstanding successes under the saddle of Jos Lansink, a champion now riding for the Belgian team. The mare Roxanne, second, under the saddle of Van Dyck, was bred by one of the most important French sires of the last ten years:Quidam De Revel, a stallion who, together with his rider Hervé Godignon had ruled the international scene in the nineties. The current Olympic champion, Jeroen Dubbeldam took the fourth place. The fifth place went to the first of the Italian riders, Filippo Moyerson, always at the top of the Italian equestrian sports for almost twenty years, on his chestnut gelding Napoli.
