Stallion : Arko III

 
   

 

Arko III  (Argentinus/Beach Boy) is currently one of the top show jumpers in the World. Under the saddle of Nick Skelton his achievements are too numerous to list, but some of his more notable performances include victories in the Grand Prix’s of Estoril, Rome, Lucerne, Dubai, Calgary, Leeuwarden & Leipzig. This successful combination also took 10th place at the Olympic Games in Athens.

 


                           
                                   

 

Arko III is sired by Argentinus who has proved himself as top-producer of international jumping horses with Anka, Air Jordan Z, Asti Spumante, Autogramm, Anastasia and Adlantus As. Mother Unika carries the first class blood of Nurzeus and Lucky Boy xx, through the stallion Beach Boy. The real power behind the success of Arko III is established in the lineage of the mother, namely mare lineage 002. This wide spread family is the base of a long list of international show jumpers: Now or Never (Piet Raymakers), Alanda (Pieter Kersten), Opium (Marcus Ehning) , It’s the Business (Goeff Glazzard) , Friso (Guido Dominici) and the legendary Darco. Ludo Phillipaerts and Darco took a 6th place at the World Championship in Stockholm (1990) and a 7th place at the Olympic Games in Barcelona (1992). More than 40 horses of Darco’s offspring are jumping at GP level.

Arko III has only been used lightly at stud but has sired some very impressive offspring who have produced some wonderful performances in the young horse classes. These offspring include John Whitaker & Keeley Durham’s Argento, Nick Skelton’s Arkida and Anne Bedford’s Lilibet (full sister to Arkan ) .
