Irion (NZ)


Sire: 
Danroad (AUS)

Dam: 
Dopff (NZ)

Foaled in 2010

Brown Mare

Irion was an extraordinary talent on the race track. This was emphasised when she broke the Hastings track record for 1600m after returning from racing in Melbourne.

A key feature of this pedigree is that daughters of Dopff, while showing talent as racehorses, are even more prolific as broodmares. Irion's first two filly foals will be raced by Pencarrow Stud.
