More than 35 of Quidam’s stallion progeny have become approved stallions around the world.  Quidam’s pre-eminence as a sire was confirmed at the 2002 WEG in Jerez where he was the sire of more showjumping participants than any other stallion.  Successful offspring include: Goldy, Guidan, Circa Z, Tlalloc La Silla, Nabab de Rêve, Dollars Boy, Hermès St Lois, Happy Villers, Jadis de Toscane, Belsedène d’Amaury, Bamby II, Baie Mahault, Coucou des Vivreau, Demie-Lune, Darios V, Furka du Village, Huppydam des Horts, Eve des Étisses, Daibolo du Parc, Dolovia de Sapaie, Drakkar de Phaële, Diam de la Ressée, Daibolo du Parc, Étoupe, Bianca d’Amaury, Eyken des Fontenis, Electra d’Amaury, Éburovic Granpré, Coco Chanel Trèfle, Billy de Forcilles, Happy Villers.

Dirka’s dam, Ondine de Baugy, produced five broodmares and from them came the stallions Sheyenne and Sioux de Baugy.  Ondine’s dam, Nadine, produced five foals, all by Nankin.
