Redoute's Jumps To Lead On 2YO Winners List With 13
Flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) jumped to the top of the list for individual 2YO winners this season when juvenile filly Savannah's Choice (Redoute's Choice-Kirov Premiere, by Sadler's Wells) scored on debut over 1350m at Wyong in NSW for trainer Chris Waller. Savannah's Choice (a $325,000 yearling consigned by Bellerive Stud at the 2009 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) is a half-sister to champion Japanese filly Cesario (who won both the Gr1 Japanese Oaks & US Gr1 Hollywood Oaks). Redoute's Choice took his total of individual Australian 2YO winners this season to 13, ahead of Coolmore-based stallion & Australian Champion Sire of the last 2 seasons Encosta de Lago & Widden Stud's Gr1 Golden Slipper-winning 7YO freshman sire Stratum (both on 12).
