In 1996 he was the youngest millionaire of Germany’s top stallions, and is meanwhile the most successful living sire in Germany. Argentinus is omnipresent whether it is in breeding or sport, at mare shows or approvals, in the dressage arena or on the showjumping course. More than 30 of his sons have been approved, including Arko III (private stallion GBR; eleventh in the 2004 Olympic showjumping final under Nick Skelton/GBR, and third most successful showjumper of the season) and Adlantus As FRH (private stallion Hesse; with his rider Lars Nieberg part of the German showjumping team at the WEG in 2002 Jerez/ESP, which took fourth place).
