Flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion & former champion Australian sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) celebrated a Gr1 victory when favoured Australian-bred colt Musir (Redoute's Choice-Dizzy De Lago, by Encosta De Lago) blitzed his rivals by 3.5-lengths in the R500,000 (A$79,000) Gr1 Golden Horseshoe (1400m) for 2YOs at Greyville. Musir (ridden by Antony Delpech for trainer Mike De Kock) defeated fellow colt Straight Forward (Toreador-Killaney Road, by Northern Guest) & fellow Australian-bred colt ExclaimnExclude (Exceed And Excel-Punchess, by Two Punch). In 4th position was Australian-bred colt Solid Choice (Redoute's Choice-Venetian Pride, by Gone West). Musir (passed in for $900,000 as a yearling at the 2008 Inglis Easter Sale) now has 2 wins & a runner-up from 3 starts.
