Gestut Rottgen Hosts German Stallion Parade

Iquitos | Gestut Rottgen

As the countdown to the start of the covering season begins, a host of Germany's stallions will be on parade at Gestut Rottgen, in Cologne, on Saturday, January 27.

The stud's own line-up of Windstoss (Ger), Millowitsch (Ger) and new recruit Iquitos (Ger) will be joined by visiting sires Best Solution (Ire) and Accon (Ger) from Gestut Lunzen, and Gestut Fahrhof's Alson (Ger). Also in attendance will be Japan (GB), who stands at Gestut Etzean, Destino (Ger) from Gestut Westerberg, Gestut Hof Ittlingen's homebred Neatico (Ger), and Rubaiyat (Ger), who will make the journey from Gestut Ohlerweiherhof ahead of his second season at stud.

New to the German ranks this year is Alter Adler (Ger), a Group 2-winning son of Adlerflug (Ger) who was also runner-up in the G1 Deutsches Derby, and who is standing at Gestut Erftmuhle. Another Derby second, Nerik (Ire), by Ruler Of The World (Ire), completes the line-up of 13 stallions. 

Following the parade, renowned stud vet Fred Barrelet, who has for many years been attached to the Rossdales practice in Newmarket, will deliver a talk entitled 'Is inbreeding nowadays a problem?'.

The parade gets underway at 12 noon.
