Darley 1-2 in the Listed Winter Challenge at Rosehill

The fast-finishing Order Again (Iffraaj) just betters New Approach’s Ziegfeld

It was a Darley 1-2 in the Listed Winter Challenge at Rosehill on Saturday, 24 July as Iffraaj’s well-campaigned son Order Again ran down Godolphin’s Ziegfeld (New Approach) to land a third Stakes contest.

A dual G3 winner in previous seasons, Order Again settled towards the rear before staking a challenge in the final 200m, producing a late final thrust to get up and win by a head.

The New Zealand-bred Order Again is the second foal out of the winning Van Nistelrooy mare Glass Half Full, a half-sister to the G2 winner Jetset Lad. They are out of a half-sister to the G3 winning Singapore runner Sky Frontier and from the family of dual G1 winner Perlin.

Order Again is the product of many successful seasons at Hanuai Farm for Iffraaj, who has since retired from shuttling duties and now been replaced by his best son Ribchester. Iffraaj himself is the sire of 9 Stakes winners alone in 2021 including the G2 Western Australian Derby winner Western Empire and G3 Prix Djebel victor Fast Raaj.
