Madiba's Queen (NZ)


Madiba's Queen (NZ)

Sire: Iffraaj (GB)

Dam: Gosh (IRE)

Colour: Chestnut

Gender: Filly

Age: 3 yo

Foaled: Oct 03, 2018


Horse Description:

This is the prettiest filly you will possibly ever see. She has returned to Leilani Lodge following a spell and has matured and strengthened even further.

She is by the past NZ Champion sire of 2yo's IFFRAAJ and is out of a GR 3 European performing mare who was also a 3 time winner.

A filly who looks to be coming to hand sooner than her pedigree suggests, our Iffraaj X Gosh filly is a very exciting prospect and we look forward to see what the future holds for this beauty!


Price: $82,500
