Lot 355 b c Iffraaj – Rosetti Bay (Pins) $165,000 (draft: Woburn Farm)
A colt with terrific pedigree attributes, by a high-quality stallion, from a mare that showed tremendous acceleration on the race track and in turn already left progeny to do the same. Both the breeding and race performance is quality to the fore.
“Rosetti Bay was a very good Group Three winner and multiple group placed mare that won eight races and has already left very a good stakes winner, Queens Rose who also won eight races,” said Te Akau principal David Ellis.
“He’s a good, strong colt, with plenty of quality about him and with two-year-old form in the family he’s the type to race as an autumn juvenile before training on to become a 2000 Guineas (Gr. 1, 1600m) contender.”
“We’ve had plenty success with the progeny of Iffraaj and this colt is a good strong colour, has a good eye, good head, moved well, very correct, and we’re really looking forward to training him”
