Ribchester Wins Gr3 Jersey Stakes
On day two of the Royal Ascot carnival in England, Haunui Farm shuttler Iffraaj (Zafonic-Pastorale, by Nureyev) added a Group success when 3YO colt Ribchester (Iffraaj-Mujarah, by Marju) scored by 2.25-lengths for trainer Richard Fahey in the Gr3 Jersey Stakes (7 furlongs), over 3YO gelding Thikriyaat (Azamour-Malaspina, by Whipper) & fellow 3YO colt Forge (Dubawi-Heat Haze, by Green Desert). Ribchester, who was third to Galileo Gold in the 2,000 Guineas at his most recent outing, advanced his record to 2 wins (including the Gr2 Mill Reef Stakes) and 3 placings (including the Gr1 English 2,000 Guineas) from 6 starts for £198,837 earnings.
