Iquitos On The Move To Gestut Rottgen

Iquitos |

German Horse of the Year and established sire Iquitos (Ger) (Adlerflug {Ger}) will move to Gestut Rottgen beginning in 2024, the stud announced on Tuesday. Standing for a partnership of Gestut Ammerland, Gestut Graditz and Mulligan Stable, his fee will be €6,000.

A multiple Group 1 winner, the son of Irika (Ger) (Areion {Ger}) has already been represented by Group 3 winner Mr Hollywood (Ire), who was second in the G1 Deutsches Derby, and listed winner and group-placed Drawn To Race (Ger) from his first crop of just five foals who are 3-year-olds.

A three-time top-level winner from 2000-2400 metres, Iquitos raced for four seasons internationally in France and Japan and was given a rating of 122 in his 26th and final start when winning the G1 Grosser Preis von Bayern. He began his stallion career at Gestut Ammerland and moved to Gestut Graditz in 2021.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer a tough, consistent and high-class racehorse who has made such a good start as a stallion,” said Gestut Rottgen's manager Frank Dorff. “Adlerflug proved to be one of the best middle-distance sires in the world and we look forward to giving Iquitos every chance to follow his sire's path and establish himself as a top sire in Germany and Europe.”
