Redoute's Choice To Shuttle To Aga Khan's Studs
Flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion & 2-time former Australian Champion Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) will shuttle to France to stand the 2013 Northern Hemisphere season at His Highness The Aga Khan's Studs. The 16-year-old leading Australian sire will ship to Haras de Bonneval and the Stud Manager Georges Rimaud said, "We are very excited to have Redoute's Choice on our stallion roster for 2013 and we will be sending at least 15 of our own mares to him. In recent years Royal Ascot has proven that the Australian sprinting thoroughbred is comparable with the best in the world. Redoute's Choice is the dominant stallion in Australia and he has already, from limited exposure, sired major winners from mares by European stallions such as Kingmambo, Caerleon, Last Tycoon, Rainbow Quest and Nureyev. This is a wonderful opportunity to send Northern Hemisphere mares to one of the best stallions in the world today, and he will undoubtedly have a strong and lasting impact on the European bloodstock industry. Furthermore, he will be a very significant addition to the stallion ranks in France which will give an enormous boost to the French breeding industry." Arrowfield Stud's John Messara added, "We are particularly delighted with this arrangement not only because His Highness the Aga Khan and some of the world's most influential breeders will support Redoute's Choice, but also because we already have the comfort of a strong working relationship with the Aga Khan Studs through our mare ventures. We think this expanded alliance will give Redoute's Choice the opportunity to create a truly global legacy." Redoute's Choice will stand at a fee of €70,000 on 1st October conditions. He will stand alongside Sea the Stars, Dalakhani, Azamour, Sinndar & Siyouni.
