Copin van de Broy's sire, Darco was a phenomenal international jumper and is one of the best sires in the world. He won many World Cup qualifiers and was placed 7th individually at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, and as a sire he was ranked 3rd on the 2012 WBFSH list of the top jumper sires of the world. He produced the renown jumpers, Sapphire (6th at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and 7th at the WEG in Aachen) and Trudo King Darco (participant in the 2000 Atlanta Olympic Games, Belgium Champion and 5th at the St. Gall European Championships), as well as many approved stallions and numerous other successful national and international jumpers.
Copin's dam line has also successfully produced many jumpers. His great granddam, Calmeo, was sired by Alme who is the sire of many top jumpers such as Galoubet A, Jalisco B, Aérobic Z, Artos Z, Athlet Z, Animo, Ahorn, Almé Star, and Zalmé.
Copin began breeding in Belgium in 2005 and in France in 2011. Despite the low number of mares he covered at the beginning, the quality of his offspring has already been proven through horses such as Aparte de Bioagrico, Artemis du Mabiet (2010 4 yr.old champion of Belgium), Bonaparte vp Wisbecq (USA), Dino van de Kapel and Carolus van de Kapel of the 4 yr. old Belgium 2010 Championships, the stallion Cannonball du Toultia Z , Challenger du Toultia Z (ISO 110), Cheri de Papignies (ISO 114), Chopin du Château Hollogne Z (winner of the 2012 belgium 4 yr. old classic tour), and the stallion Come Back Z (2012 champion of Belgium) among many others.
