Silvio I is out of Goldkatze by the Gotthard son, Gepard who was an influential brood mare sire for Paul Schockemöhle. Goldkatze also produced the full-brother, Silvio II who passed his performance test with the highest index for jumping at Medingen in 1994. The granddam, Rhododendron (by the Thoroughbred, Ballyboy) produced PS Palm Springs, the reserve champion at the Bundeschampionate in 1987, and later an advanced showjumper.
On the WBFSH standings for 2007, Silvio was 25th but in the 2009 rankings he had dropped out of the top 30.
