WOOTTON Bassett, one of 10 top-level scorers among 72 stakes winners for Iffraaj (Zafonic), was an undefeated Group 1 winner and champion in France at two.

He made an impact with his first crop, his juvenile stakes-winning son Almanzor becoming a middle-distance champion at three. That Prix du Jockey Club-French Derby, Irish Champion Stakes and Champion Stakes standout, was bred by Haras d’Etreham, stands there, shuttles to the southern hemisphere, had a string of six-figure yearlings in 2020 and is a freshman sire in 2021.
