If Not Now

Colt, 4 yrs
Sire: Iffraaj
Dam: Amona
Trainer:

A €67,000 yearling, If Not Now is a big two-year-old from a high-class family. His dam was placed in the German Oaks and he’ll be seen at his best as a three-year-old and beyond.

Purchased for €67,000 at the sales in Baden Baden, Germany, the same sale we sourced Nivaldo and Lord Protector (this years Arc de Triomphe winner was also sold there as a yearling). 

This colt is a son of established sire Iffraaj, who has produced the likes of multiple G1 winning miler Ribchester and leading stallion Wootton Bassett (stands at stud for €150k). This colt is a very good looking, strong individual. His dam was placed in the German Oaks and should provide some stamina influence to complement the miler-speed influence of Iffraaj. The hammer came down at less than what we valued him at and we were delighted to have secured him.

He made his debut in a Salisbury maiden in a Salisbury maiden in September 2022. Having done everything wrong, the penny dropped 300 yards out and he got going to cosily pass the field for a winning debut.

His three year old career started in similar fashion, when he ran green behind a couple of useful-looking individuals in a Haydock novice. Again, he finished his race strongly.

Earlier impressions were confirmed when If Not Now won a Sandown handicap in convincing fashion by a going-away seven lengths. He then gave his owners a tremendous weekend away in Hamburg, placing 5th in the German Derby. He is now rated 102.

We are keeping him in training as a four year old and are looking forward to an exciting season.
