Flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion & current Australian Champion sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a black-type success (& 68th individual stakes-winner) when 5YO gelding Grand Jardin (Redoute's Choice-Liberty Rose, by Royal Academy) scored a half-length victory in the $80,000 Listed R.S.Crawford Stakes (1000m) at Ascot. Grande Jardin (ridden by Jason Whiting for trainer Bruce Watkins) defeated 4YO geldings Kid Choisir (Choisir-Friendly Seas, by Mister C) & Impatient Times (Numerous Times-Impatient Lass, by Dr Johnson). Grand Jardin (a $1.5 million yearling at the 2007 Magic Millions January Gold Coast Sale) now has 5 wins & 1 placing (including 2008's Listed National Jockey Celebration Classic over 1000m at Caulfield) from 17 starts for $166,650 earnings.
