An Argentinus son and a full brother of August der Starke OLD - with August der Dritte [August the Third] breeders have a real gem at their disposal for breeding. August der Dritte took his stallion performance test in Redefin in 2010, finishing as the Reserve Champion and clearly dominating in jumping with an index of 130.60 and finishing fourth in the dressage index with a score of 118.38. Since then, this athletic bay with double talents has not been idle and has continued to place in tests for young show jumpers as well as in dressage.

With their pronounced type, correct conformation and dynamic movements, August der Dritte's foals are delightful.

His sire Argentinus as well as his dam's sire Landadel are both known as highly versatile sires. Argentinus' offspring that are successful on the course, including the World Cup winner Anka/Marcus Ehning and the EC team bronze winning Asti Spumante/Thomas Mühlbauer, helped to rank him among the top ten jumper-makers in the world (according to WBFSH). His offspring in dressage also stood out, especially the team European Champion Albano/Heike Kemmer and the Grand Prix series winner, August der Starke OLD, ridden by Victoria Max-Theurer, Austria. The latter is also the sire of Victoria Max-Theurer's licensed Augustin OLD, who won the Burg Pokal and took fifth place in the European Championships.

Along with August der Dritte and August der Starke OLD, their dam Elinda also had a daughter, St.Pr.St. Granulita (by Granulit), who is the dam of the Celle State Stud sire Comte (by Comtendro I), a successful medium (M*) level show jumper.

The great granddam St.Pr.St. Palla (by Pokal) is the dam of two internationally successful Grand Prix horses, Flashdancer (by Freiherr) and Goldfinger (by Grundewald), both ridden by the Irish rider, Anna Merveldt-Steffens.
