We are delighted to introduce our 2-year old for the 2024 season – a strapping colt from a strong family! Purchased at the Tattersalls Book 2 Yearling Sales this son of Iffraaj, from a Dam who has only produced 4 winners from 4 foals, is one new HOTSR trainer James Tate cannot wait to get started with!
The un-named youngster is by 7-time and Group winning Iffraaj who needs no introduction as a stallion having produced some great horses during his stud career! Those include 4-time Group 1 winner Ribchester, progressive dual listed winner My Prospero who was one of the best 3-year olds in Europe, Group 1 winner Wootton Bassett and Group 2 Temple Stakes winner Hot Streak to name but a few! He also has a 55% success strike rate with his flat offspring.
The Dam La Napoule was a 6f winner and is a full sister to La Cucaracha who is a 7-time winner including the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes. La Napoule has made her mark as a broodmare and has produced 4 foals, all of which are winners in the UK and abroad including 5-time winner Streaker, 4-time winner Aunt Agatha, 3-time winner Tyndrum Gold (who won recently and is now rated 91) and 5f winner Peggy Sioux (rated 86) with 13 wins and 19 placed finishes between them.
Newmarket based trainer James Tate is someone who HOTSR have started working with last year and things couldn’t have got off to a better start! He is a methodical trainer with a high level of attention to detail and views horses from a trainers and vets perspective (he is a qualified vet.) James enjoyed a great 2023 season too, and he’s returned our 4yo King Of Ithaca back to winning form too.
“When I first saw this horse I thought he was fabulous! He is a good size but not too big, he is strong without being too heavy and he’s a good walker with perfect conformation. He is a fine looking son of Iffraaj and I’m hopeful he can continue with the family tradition of being winners!”
Trainer – James Tate
Currently in pre-training, he is described as a very straightforward individual and is already enjoying a quiet canter on the Newmarket gallops. James expects him to be ready to make his racing debut June/July time over 6furlongs, but ultimately will be a miler.

Iffraaj by Pastorale
Iffraaj was a winner of 7 races throughout his 3 year career. He won during the back end of his 2yo career before winning 4 times during the age of 4 including the Group 2 GNER Park Stakes at Doncaster. He moved trainers in late 2005 and finished a close 2nd in the Group 1 Darley Cup before winning the Group 2 Lennox Stakes at Goodwood and the Group 2 GNER Park Stakes at York.
Since retiring to Stud he’s been a phenomenal stallion and he’s produced from champion juveniles to champion milers! Some of his best offspring have been Ribchester, Gingernuts, Turn Me Loose, Jungle Cat and Chriselliam.
La Napoule by Piccolo
La Napoule was a winner and placed over 6 furlongs before she retired to stud where she’s been an excellent mare. Her 4 foals have all been winners and this definitely bodes well for this lad!
