3-time Gr.1 winner IQUITOS takes up study duty at Gestuet Ammerland in 2019.
The ladies will have to travel to Lake Starnberger, where this outstanding racehorse will ring in his second career as a stallion. Of course we are talking about IQUITOS, the 2016 Horse Of The Year who after winning the German Champions League twice (2016 and 2018) retired with a top GAG of 100 kg (Timeform 124) and takes up stud duty at Gestüt Ammerland in 2019.
In his active career, which spanned four racing seasons, the ADLERFLUG-son competed in 26 races, won eight of them and recorded five group wins, three of them at Gr.1 level. IQUITOS beat 22 individual Gr.1 winners, including the 2-time Gr.1 winner (Grand Prix de Saint Cloud, Criterium de Saint Cloud) and Arc-fourth WALDGEIST, the 3-time Gr.1 winner 2018 BEST SOLUTION (Caulfield Cup, Baden Grand Prix, Berlin Grand Prix), the two 3-time Gr.1 winners DYLAN MOUTH and GUIGNOL as well as the 2017 Horse Of The Year DSCHINGIS SECRET. Among the other defeated opponents were no less than 36 Gr.2 and Gr.3 winners!
In his toughness and tremendous speed, which he demonstrated on any ground, IQUITOS impressively combines the outstanding strengths of his sire ADLERFLUG with the qualities of his proven dam sire, the four-time German Champion AREION. His appearances were characterised by his enormous willingness to perform and a fighting spirit that is unparalleled.
Convinced of his qualities, we are very happy to be able to offer IQUITOS at Gestüt Ammerland and to welcome his first foals soon!
