Redoute's Choice Tops Sires Table After Stakes Double
With just over a month remaining of the season, Saturday's stakes-winning double by Melito & Mirrasalo (see above) took Arrowfield Stud stallion Redoute's Choice to the top of the General Sires Table. Augmented by placings by Sikka, Halleys, Go For Home & Dancefloor Prodigy, the duo's combined earnings pushed Redoute's Choice over $200,000 clear of perennial arch-rival Encosta De Lago. In addition, for the 2009/10 season, Redoute's Choice is also Australia's leading sire of individual 2YO winners (14), 3YO winners (54) & individual stakes-winners (14). Redoute's Choice last won the General Sires Premiership in 2006. He stands the 2010 season at a fee of $176,000.
