Irion (NZ)

Danroad (AUS)

Dopff (NZ)

Foaled in 2010

Brown Mare Currently In Foal To: Super Seth (AUS)

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.

More Than Ready - Irion (NZ)

 Irion made a significant impression with her performances on the track and has made an impressive start to her new career having produced a lovely filly by More than Ready. This filly is a granddaughter of outstanding racemare Dopff and hails from one of the most productive families in commission at present. Irion will be bred to Tavistock this season.

filly : 26/10/18


 Irion has delivered her second foal, a very attractive filly by proven sire Tavistock. Irion was a very capable racemare, winning on four occassions and being Group placed in both the Cuddle stakes and Rich hill mile. She is a member of a very productive family that has produced the likes of Pussy O'Reilly, Vavasour, and Vilanova in recent years. Her first foal is a filly by More Than Ready and has been retained by the stud.

filly : 08/09/20
