NZB Select Yearlings Day-1: NZ$290k Iffraaj Filly
Kiwi trainer Roger James paid top price of NZ$290,000 for a filly by Darley's 2010 boom European freshman stallion & Haunui Farm shuttler Iffraaj (the 3rd foal out of dual-winning 10-year-old Zabeel mare Sayyida) during the opening session at the 3-day NZ Bloodstock Select Yearling Sale (following this week's initial 2-day Premier Yearling Sale & to be followed by the 2-day Festival Yearling Sale) at Karaka in Auckland. The filly was consigned by Trelawney Stud & her dam Sayyida is a half-sister to unraced Brilliant Princess (dam of NZ Gr1-winning & dual Gr1-placed Prince Kaapstad).
