European Darley stallions sired a Stakes double in Australia on Saturday, 24 June.
First to strike was Iffraaj’s six-year-old son Luncies, who was winning his first Group race in the G3 Tattersall’s Cup.
Bred in Europe by Stetchworth & Middle Park Studs, he has been a consistent performer in Australia with this well deserved success coming on the back of six second places in Stakes company.
