  1. I saw Preferment today at Brighthill. A very nice horse just out of training He looks like Zabeel's natural successor and I will be breeding to him
  2. Dopey can read
  3. Another G1 winner at Royal Ascot in the Queen Anne Stakes
  4. Agreed Also the tremendous win by New York Minute another quality Iffraaj
  5. Congratulations Allan well deserved honour
  6. David Bennett has been MP for Hamilton East for many years and is likely to retain his seat at this year's elections. He is a dairy farmer and I am aware that he has attended Racing events in Hamilton. I hope that he does a good job in this important portfolio.
  7. Are Chris and Danielle related? l
  8. Another Group winning 3 year old by Iffraaj in Brisbane today I understand that Iffraaj is a sire that has not previously been supported by the major studs so this may change in 2017 Based on his progeny's current race results that he is NZ's best 3 year old stallion and most promising dam sire
  9. Iffraaj sired a U.K. Group 1 stakes winner Ribchester on Saturday I understand that he has a full book for the 2017 breeding season
  10. Iffraaj's progeny 1st and 3rd in 2 year old race at Matamata today. The winner Griffin looks an excellent 3year old prospect for next season the way he ran on
  11. Another quality Iffraaj 3 year colt with Prince Hareem winning impressively at Te Rapa on Saturday.
  12. Congrats Haunui at keeping Iffraaj's 2017 service fee at a modest $25,000 which is very affordable for our breeders. Compare this service fee to the Australian based stallions fees. There are probably 50 plus Aussie sires standing at a higher service fee than Iffraaj. He is now a serious sire and has started his career as a broodmare sire with a bang. If he stood in Aussie imagine what increase his 2017 service fee would have been on the back of his 3 year colts achievements We bred our K1 mare to Iffraaj these past two seasons and also have a young broodmare Mistaar by Iffraaj.
  13. Countofmontecristo looks a very good horse in the making. Now a dual Group winner next race is a Group 1. Let's hope NZB note this and give the progeny of his sire Echoes of Heaven more credibility for future sales. upgraded
  14. Iffraaj has left a NZ 3 year old crop that is one of the best in my memory. He has sired five 3yr old colts that are stakes winners starting with Karaka Millions Winner Xiong Feng, and followed by The Soultaker - since sold to Hong Kong. Then followed the Group winners Wyndspelle, Gingernuts and Jon Snow - the last two are unbeaten in Australia. And before these 3 year olds we had Turn Me Loose. Iffraaj had only two yearlings in the Karaka Premier Sale this year. He now deserves to be now recognised as an elite stallion - just like Tavistock whose stock were significantly upgraded for our last sale series. Well done to Haunui, Mark, Shannon and your team
  15. I was saddened to hear that one of NZ racing's leaders Herby Dyke passed away today. Herby put a lot into our sport and he will remembered through his continuing sponsorship of several Guineas races at Waikato, Avondale and Wanganui. Herby was a pioneer of the motor vehicle industry in NZ and he ran excellent businesses. I was privileged to have known and worked with him.
