We purchased this handsome son of Iffraaj from the Arqana Deauville Summer Sale in 2016. He has been racing in France for HH The Aga Khan and comes from the stable of French Derby winning trainer Jean-Claude Rouget.
He is clearly well regarded, having had entries in 3 French Group 1 races and won 3 times, over trips from 5.5 to 7.5 furlongs over both good and soft ground, suggesting a fairly open book of opportunities.
We feel he has a bright future with David O'Meara, whom we have very successfully placed many a 'horse-in-training' with in past seasons, including Group 1 winning G Force, the Old Newton Cup winner Tawdeea and the Carlisle Bell winner Waarif.
Syndicate manager update: Probably the most consistent and versatile horse we have at MPR. He always seems to collect prize money and is now a genuine, dual purpose horse. He races twice a month, usually makes the running and always gives his best. A massive horse, who is a real eye catcher too. Pretty much the perfect horse to own!
