Iffraaj is staking his claim as one of New Zealand's leading sires.

His statistics rival those of any proven stallion standing in the country. The sire of a filly of the year, a Sprinter and Middle Distance Horse of the Year and, the 2016 Karaka Million-winner and, the 2017 New Zealand Derby winner, Iffraaj has consistently been among New Zealand's leading sires.

Iffraaj’s pedigree and racetrack performance is of the highest class. A multiple Group Two winner and Group One performer, Iffraaj attained an International Classification of 128 and a Timeform Rating of 127 at the end of his five-year-old season.

Complimenting his racetrack performance, Iffraaj has a world-class pedigree being out of a Nureyev daughter of a Group One winner and, half-sister to Champion Sire Cape Cross. With looks to rival any stallion on the planet and the ability to pass these looks onto his foals, Iffraaj has all the credentials to become a breed shaper.
