Season greetings from the heathland: Thank you 2018!  
Once again, we send the traditional holiday greetings from the Lüneburger Heide and look back on the year drawing to a close. And for a moment we grow very still—what a year it was!

Gestuet Park Wiedingen closes the year 2018 with the repetition of the fourth place in the breeder statistics and the same rank in the ranking of the owners. This alone is a great success, but even more so than the statistics the actual moments of joy and pride move our hearts. With WHISPERING ANGEL we were able to pick up yet another Champion 2yo from the track, who is following in DHABA'S footsteps (2015). DESTINO shone like a star with a second place finish in the German Derby and a subsequent impressive victory at G3 level. The fighter DEVASTAR made us proud with a very strong fourth place in the G1 56. Preis von Europa and will stay in racing duty for another year. Unlike the 2017 Horse Of The Year DSCHINGIS SECRET, who has already moved into his new box stall at the Haras de Saint Arnoult to become the third son of his sire SOLDIER HOLLOW after PASTORIUS and OUR IVANHOWE to become a stallion.

And to crown an already great year with the absolute best, SOLDIER HOLLOW's progeny have again propelled their sire to the top of the German sire rankings—and they did so in great style. 74 wins by 48 winners and a total of 1.4 million euros in prize money have our crack dominate the statistics and celebrate his second championship. With another Derby winner in WELTSTAR, a two year old champion in WHISPERING ANGEL, nine Stakes victories in total, many good placings at the highest level and a growing international interest in his offspring, 2018 became a year of superlatives for our Champion Sire SOLDIER HOLLOW.

We gratefully conclude 2018 and wish all our customers, breeders, friends as well as our wonderful staff and all those who have made this extremely successful year possible a Merry Christmas and a good start into a 2019 full of health, joy and success!
