A proven, International Group One Sire, IFFRAAJ is New Zealand's Champion 3YO Sire and adds this title to an array of season-ending highs that have come throughout his stallion career.
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 Stallions SAVABEEL and O'REILLY at the top of the General Sires table.
There is no doubt that the 2016/2017 season has been a landmark 12 months for IFFRAAJ and infact 2017 has 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, has seen IFFRAAJ'S star rise even further.
And it doesn't stop there.
2017 has seen the emergence of IFFRAAJ as a broodmare sire and sire of sires with daughter Meleka Belle producing Karaka Million winner and Group One Manawatu Sires Produce Stakes winner MELODY BELLE - her first foal - whilst in the Northern Hemisphere, Champion son WOOTTON BASSETT has left Champion 3YO of Europe and three-time Group One winner, ALMANZOR.
Having sired his 50th individual stakes winner, IFFRAAJ is well on his way to creating a legacy.
