Iffraaj Adds Italian Gr3

Monday, 2nd May 2011

In Italy overnight, Darley's Irish Kildangan Stud-based boom 2nd-crop stallion & NZ Haunui Farm shuttler Iffraaj (Zafonic-Pastorale, by Nureyev) added a group success when Irish-bred daughter Stay Alive (Iffraaj-Pursuit Of Life, by Pursuit Of Love) scored a 2-lengths victory in the €187,000 (A$258,000) Gr3 Premio Regina Elena (1600m) for 3YO fillies at the Capannelle in Rome. Stay Alive (ridden by Dario Vargiu for trainer Bruno Grizzetti) defeated UK-bred Adamantina (Diktat-Royal Hawk, by Wolfhound) & Good Karma (Tobougg-Greedy Slewpy, by Slewpy). Last year Stay Alaive also placed in both Itali's Gr3 Premio Dormello (1600m) at San Siro & Listed Premio Coolmore (1500m) at San Siro.
