Inglis Easter Day-1: $1.6m Redoute's Choice Colt
Victorian trainer Lee Freedman paid $1.6 million for another colt by Redoute's Choice (the 8th foal from Rory's Jester mare Singles Bar) also consigned by Arrowfield Stud as agent. Singles Bar is a half-sister to former star Arrowfield sire Snippets; of her 8 foals, 6 have raced for 5 winners, including this colt's full brother Not A Single Doubt (whose 4 wins from 1000-1200m & $391,500 earnings include the Listed Canonbury Stakes, Listed Zeditave Stakes & Strawberry Hill Slipper in a Wyong course record, plus runner-up in the Gr3 Schweppervescence Cup). Freedman (who noted the colt would race for a syndicate that may include a stud) commented: "I think he's great value: you have to expect to pay these sort of prices & with all the speed in the family, he's got to be a very very good 2YO for next season. It's a cross that's already worked & his dam is a half-sister to a Champion in Snippets, who was a good sire himself."
