Lot 173 br f Proisir – Light Source (Iffraaj) $37,500 (draft: Fairdale Stud)
“I thought this filly had quite a bit of upside about her,” said David Ellis. “Proisir is a promising young stallion who’s had a couple of nice trial winners and we’ve got a handy filly in the stable called Harlow that we like.”
“She’s out of a young Iffraaj mare, the same as Melody Belle. Iffraaj has got a beautiful pedigree. He’s done a really good job down here in New Zealand, and I think he’s going to be an exciting broodmare sire.”
The filly is closely related to a Karaka Million winner, Ockham’s Razor who went on to race in Hong Kong, out of grand-dam Shadow Ray (Groom Dancer) who has also left talented filly Jungle Juice, the winner of five races from 1400m to 2100m.
“She was very good value and looks to have the precocity about her to race as a two-year-old,” Ellis said.
