AJFAN (USA)
Woodman (USA) - Misinskie (USA) (Nijinsky)

 

Ajfan, second place getter in the Group I Ascot Fillies Mile and third place getter in the Group I One Thousand Guineas is the dam of stakes placed filly El Laoob (by Red Ransom) and colt Mutamayyaz (by Nureyev). Ajfan is from the family of successful sires including: Listed winner Clever Trick (by Icecapade) and Group I winner Alydeed (by Shadeed). Ajfan's 2004 O'Reilly colt has been a star of the Singapore racing scene this year. Known as Big Maverick, he won the first two legs of the Singapore Three-Year-Old Challenge and then finished third in the final leg. In 2006 she produced a colt by Tiger Hill, that sold to Hong Kong and she has a yearling filly by Lucky Unicorn that will be retained by the stud.
