OLIVER is a stunning colt.
He was awarded Gold Premium at the "Rheinland-Pfalz-Saar International" (RPSI) inspection, scoring 7.8 for her type, 8.2 for his enormous movement, finishing with a solid 8 total.
His sire ODYSSEUS W is an outstanding stallion with an impressive competition record. He has successfully shown in many Grand Prix classes.
ODYSSEUS Wís sire HOLLAND who himself competed at top International level with Irishman Eddie Macken. ODYSSEUS Wís grand sire CONCORDE, (later known as OLYMPIC CONCORDE) won the 1990 National Stallion Competition among many International wins for Jos Lansink. CONCORDE was also the youngest stallion ever to be awarded "preferent" due to his endless list of National and International offspring. CONCORDE comes from very strong jumping lines on both sides. His sire is the impressive dominant breeding stallion VOLTAIRE, who via his sire FURIOSO II and the great GOTTHARD is bred to perform. VOLTAIRE was number 2 in the World Breeding Rankings for Showjumping sires in 1996. Through the performance of his offspring, VOLTAIRE stands very high in both the dressage and jumping indices. Due to his high ranking position, he was given the quot;keur' and quot;preferent' predicates at a very early age. He has sired a great number of International stars including Dutch team horse FINESSE, Beth Underhill's ALTAIR, Ian Miller's Olympic mount PLAY IT AGAIN, HELIOS, ELECTRO 778, KANNAN, VECHTA, VIVALDI. FURIOSO II produced 200 state premium mares and at least 70 approved stallions. One can easily say that FURIOSO II has influenced the breeding industry worldwide. The full brother of FURIOSO II is the French stallion MEXICO, whose son LE MEXICO is a familiar name in Dutch breeding and frequently appears in the pedigrees of successful showjumpers. GOTTHARD, now more than fifteen years after his death, is a legend in German sport horse breeding and his name is simply a synonym for the Hannoverian showjumper. Who has not heard of GOLDIKA, GOYA, QUEENSWAY and GENIUS? GOTTHARD's strength is continued in his sons and grandsons but also indirectly on the dam side of for instance GRUNDSTEIN and GRANNUS.CONCORDEíS dam, FLYER, is by the legendary MARCO POLO, one of the most influential Dutch stallions in breeding and jumping having produced such athletes 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 1980. FLYER has produced 6 International jumpers.
