Sire Sao Paulo is a very popular sire and represents one of the most significant mare lines of the Hanover breeding region. The dam, state premium mare Anabell, was highly premiumed at mare shows and district livestock shows numerous times. Her sire Argentinus, a successful advanced class show jumper, distinguished himself as a versatile hereditary transmitter of the very highest class from early on. He was the main premium champion stallion in Oldenburg in 1984. His progeny are omnipresent, whether it is at mare shows, stallion approvals, in the dressage or show jumping sport or at federal championships, they are represented in all fields of equestrian sport. The granddam Betsey is the full sister of the NRW procreator of show jumpers Barring, who was the Rhenic approvals winner in his day. Bariton and Ehrensold in the third and fourth generations are famous sires of the Westphalian breed.
