Farraaj's only start in the United States was successful with the gelding finishing third in the 2011 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf. The next year he shipped to Italy where he finished third in the Italian 2,000 Guineas before winning two stakes at Lingfield.
Farraaj is from a deep family of stakes winners. He is a half-brother to two graded stakes winners and his dam is a half-sister to Cape Cross and Great Britain from the family of champion Russian Rhythm.
