Aust-Bred Colt 1st European Winner For Redoute's Choice
Flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) recorded his 1st European winner overnight when Australian-bred 2YO colt Elzaam (Redoute's Choice-Mambo In Freeport, by Kingmambo) scored on debut over 6 furlongs at York for trainer Michael Jarvis. Elzaam (among a small group of Redoute's Choice yearlings bred in Australia to Northern Hemisphere time in 2007 & sold in Europe last year) was purchased by Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum's Shadwell Stud at France's 2009 Arqana August Yearling sale for €280,000 (A$406,000).
