Argento does it again!

John Whitaker and his AES Stallion Argento were yet again able to add to their long list of successes by winning the hotly contested  $85,000 Prix Airbus CSI5* last night at the Longines Los Angeles Masters CSI5*.

Argento, the 13-year-old Anglo stallion (Arko III x Gasper) was bred by Keeley Durham and is owned by Clare Whitaker. He continues to occupy the top position in the WBFSH Rankings of Show Jumpers. 

This success story is set to continue, as John Whitaker is at Longines for a significant reason: After winning the Longines Hong Kong Masters Grand Prix back in February, he is sure to have his eyes on the additional $1,000,000 bonus to be his if he can capture all three grand prix classes of the Masters Grand Slam trio. The third Grand Prix will be at the Paris Masters in December.

In the meantime, we wish the all the best of success for Sunday, Friday night's success was certainly a great start!
