Argento tops the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses World Rankings List.

Argento tops the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses World Rankings List. John and Clare Whitaker's brilliant 13-year-old stallion Argento has taken over top spot in the latest World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses world rankings list.

The 13-year-old stallion has enjoyed an outstanding season, guided by John's masterful riding, to post a string of impressive performances that includes a grand prix victory in Hong Kong, second places in the Longines Global Champions Tour London and Monaco grand prix, plus a magnificent double clear in stamina-sapping conditions that underpinned Great Britain's FEI Nations Cup triumph in Rome two months ago.

After being ranked second last month, Argento (Arko III x Gasper) is now top of the prestigious WBFSH list, heading fellow world-class horses like the Scott Brash-ridden Hello Sanctos, owned by Lord and Lady Harris and Lord and Lady Kirkham, in sixth, while Rolf Goran-Bengtsson's London Global Champions Tour grand prix winner Casall ASK is fourth.

Speaking after Argento's second place in London two days ago, John said: "He is on very good form, and I think I'm on quite good form! He jumped great, absolutely superbly."

Argento's breeder Keely Durham commented "It is fantastic news for British breeding. I am very proud of Argento, and a big well done to John for getting him there."
