Sharkbite Relocates To Eliza Park In Vic At $5.5k
Eliza Park announced the impending sale of NSW Hunter Valley-based Byerley Stud “has resulted in a change of location for stakes-winning stallion Sharkbite (Redoute’s Choice-Back Pass, by Quest For Fame) who will be switched to Victoria for the 2010 breeding season” at a $5,500 fee. Eliza Park chief executive Cameron Croucher noted: “With the phenomenal success of sons of Redoute’s Choice at stud, Eliza Park was quick to snap up the opportunity to stand Sharkbite, who is 1 of only 2 stakes-winning sons of Redoute’s Choice at stud in Victoria. There is no doubting the potential of the Redoute’s Choice sire dynasty & he has the runs on the board. We are very confident about God’s Own & Sharkbite gives us another son of Redoutes who was also a stakes-winner in Melbourne & a genuinely talented racehorse. He is a smashing type with an incredible pedigree & cost $900,000 as a yearling.” On the track, Sharkbite recorded 5 wins (including the Listed Lord Stakes over 1700m at Caulfield) & 5 placings (including both the Gr3 Danehill Stakes over 1200m at Flemington & Listed Vain Stakes over 1100m at Caulfield) from 23 starts for $292,000 earnings.
