Sired by Ribchester, he is a son of Iffraaj. Ribchester was Europe’s Champion Miler at 3YO & 4YO. With four G1 wins at the mile, including the Queen Anne Stakes in record time, Ribchester’s 16 start career saw him start 15 times at Group Level, 11 of those at G1 level with a further six G1 placings added to his tally.
Relatively new to the breeding barn, Ribchester retired to stud in 2018. Ribchester is the sire of 19 stakes performers including nine individual stakes winners. His first crop of three-year-olds have just over a 60% winners/runners strike rate and an 11% stakes horses to runners ratio.
This gelding is scheduled to fly over to Melbourne next week on November 29. He will then spell at Kingshaven Farm for 6 weeks and then commence pre training. After that he will come into our Cranbourne Stables and begin his racing career.
