The European Champion by Argentinus
We can offer a genetic rarity with the stallion All Star, current European Team Champion, tenth individually at the European Championships and fifth in the World Cup Final, as this bay powerhouse combines Argentinus, Almé, Ramiro and Winnetou in an almost perfect way.
In 2010, the Irishman Denis Lynch led the Hanoverian Vice-Champion (5 y.o.) to his first successes in the International Youngster Tour, followed by victories at top events in Cannes/FRA, Gothenburg/SWE, Barcelona/ESP and Valkenswaard/NED. All Star took part in four World Cup finals and made his championship debut at the 2014 World Equestrian Games in Caen/FRA with a place in the top ten in the individual ranking. In 2015, he reached the individual final at the European Championships in Aachen. In 2017, after winning Team Gold at the European Championships in Gothenburg/SWE, he took tenth place in the Individual Ranking.
His sire Argentinus was a top-quality sport horse producer, which catapulted him to the top of the world’s best jumping sires at the beginning of the 2000s. His offspring include Anka/Marcus Ehning: World Cup Champion; Air Jordan Z/Daniel Deußer: World Cup silver medallist; Asti Spumante/Thomas Mühlbauer: European Team Champion; Arko III/Nick Skelton/GBR: tenth at the Olympics; Adlantus As FRH/Lars Nieberg: team fourth at the World Championships; Banda de Hus/Kevin Staut/FRA and Gregory Wathelet/BEL as well as Azarro/Holger Wulschner, etc. Argentinus’ offspring are also highly placed in dressage, such as the European Championship gold medallist Albano/Heike Kemmer, the two-time German Champion Amaretto/Isabell Werth and August der Starke OLD/Victoria Max-Theurer/AUT.
The dam St. Pr. St. April Love ZH was placed in young horses competitions and also produced the licensed stallions Pilaro (by Pilot), placed at advanced level, Allstar (by Argentinus)/Oliver Ross, victorious at advanced level and the mare Contessina (by Contender), who herself produced the licensed stallion Quel Homme.
His grand-dam is none other than the internationally highly successful Rinnetou Z/Piet Raymarkers/NED. She also produced the licensed stallion Chardonnay Z (by Caretano). Her half-sister Zalza (by Zeus)/Nick Skelton/GBR and half-brother Cornelis Z (by Cor de la Bryère) were both internationally successful, and her half-brother Rival Z (by Ramiro) was a licensed stallion.
The line goes back to the wonder mare Fairness Z, with whom Hartwig Steenken made his international breakthrough. Amaretto I-IV, Acolito, Oak Grove’s AH, Dirty Sanchez, For Fairness, Lalique del Chirone, Don Darco de Bornival Z, Apricot/Hugo Simon/AUT and Absalom Z/Michael Whitaker/GBR also come from this line.
