A proven, International Group One Sire, IFFRAAJ has done it all. The sire of Karaka Million 2YO's, Classic winning fillies, Derby winning colts, sprinters, milers and WFA performers, IFFRAAJ has proven himself a truly versatile stallion.
First arriving in New Zealand in 2008, it all started in his first crop with FIX crowned New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year. Since then, IFFRAAJ has been at the top of New Zealand's 2YO and 3YO sires tables and in recent years, has found himself joining the likes of Champion Stallion SAVABEEL at the top of the General Sires table.
The 2016/2017 season proved a landmark 12 months for IFFRAAJ and infact 2017 provided some outstanding highlights with three Group One winners around the globe, that tally bettered by only Galileo and Snitzel. A Derby on either side of the Tasman (GINGERNUTS and JON SNOW respectively), and another Royal Ascot Group One from Champion Miler RIBCHESTER, saw IFFRAAJ'S star rise even further.
And it didn't stop there.
IFFRAAJ is leaving his mark as a broodmare sire and sire of sires with daughter Meleka Belle producing Champion 2YO and now multiple G1 winner MELODY BELLE - whilst in the Northern Hemisphere, Champion son WOOTTON BASSETT left Champion 3YO of Europe and three-time Group One winner, ALMANZOR.
2018 sees IFFRAAJ with two sire sons at stud in the Southern Hemisphere - TURN ME LOOSE & RIBCHESTER - along with grandson ALMANZOR.
Having sired over 60 individual stakes winners including 9 G1 winners, IFFRAAJ is a truly proven, International G1 sire and he is well on his way to creating a legacy.
