Star NZ Iffraaj Filly Sidelined Until 2014
Last season's NZ Bloodstock Filly of the Year, Fix (Iffraaj–Destined, by Danehill) won't be seen again until 2014, reports the informant.co.nz. Trained by Ken Kelso, Fix has undergone an operation "for the removal of a bone chip in a fetlock joint" and is currently confined to her box. Fix raced seven times in stakes races during her 2012-13 season which produced victories in the Gr2 Cambridge Stud Eight Carat Classic, NZ Bloodstock Royal Stakes & Gr2 Cambridge Stud Sir Tristram Fillies' Classic. She also recorded a number of stakes-placings which included the Gr1 NZ Bloodstock 1000 Guineas & Gr1 New Zealand Derby.
