Posted on Jan 17, 2021 in Progeny, Sport Horses For Sale

GrandView Air Time (IFS) is by the legendary Argentinus himself. In fact he has a triple cross of Argentinus and a double cross of Grannus II.

Argentinus was the youngest millionaire among Germany’s top sires and he remained a top sire right up until his death in 2007. A successful advanced level jumper himself, Argentinus produced both jumping and dressage competitors and stallions.

His progeny include over 20 approved stallions, including the stallion performance test winner and Vechta price record breaking, August der Starke (sire of Victoria Max-Theuer’s Grand Prix dressage horse, Augustin) and numerous State Premium Mares, many of which have proved themselves on a national level.

In the survey of the world’s top 75 jumping sires that appears in Monneron 2007-2008, Argentinus is ranked 16th the world, with 15 CSI winners.

On the WBFSH 2007 jumping stallion standings, Argentinus was in 7th position, with 18 representatives, six of whom have 200+ points: Special Ed (Grannus), Arko III (Beach Boy), Asti Spumante (Landfrieden), Air Jordan (Matador), Anastasia (Zeus) and E & W Armani (Weltmeister). Markus Ehning’s star duo – Anka (Waidmann) and Armitage (Grannus) are just behind, tied on 130 points.

So jump this boy should..! Or if dressage is your preference then dance this boy will.

I’ve been told by several large and successful studs that this colt has a very rare pedigree and he is 100% worthy of being kept as a stallion prospect.

Arrow is one of the most sensible and easy foals that we have bred. Not a lot phases him at all.

This colt is available on payment plan to coincide with his weaning so now is the perfect time to secure this exciting colt.
