An established connection with Haunui Farm stallion Iffraaj was strengthened further for Cambridge-based trainer Mark Fraser-Campin on the final day of the New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sale at Karaka.
Fraser-Campin outlaid $30,000 for Lot 1119, a colt out of Tale Of The Cat mare Estelle, who was presented through the Woburn Farm draft.
The colt features Gr.1 Levin Classic (1600m) runner-up, Le Choix, in his pedigree while he also traces back to outstanding Australian juvenile Dance Hero who won the 2004 edition of the Gr.1 Golden Slipper (1200m).
“We are members of the Iffraaj syndicate that stand him at Haunui Farm,” said Fraser-Campin.
“We also owned and raced Kisses, who was a fabulous mare that won eight races, so we know a fair bit about his progeny.
“This is a nice, strong colt who will need a little time, which we are prepared to give him.”
