Century In Sight For Redoute's Choice
Meanwhile, the odds on Redoute's Choice reaching his century of stakes-winners this season have shortened again over the past week, after results in Germany (Shaqira) and New Zealand took his lifetime tally to 93, followed immediately on Saturday by Alzora's Ethereal Stakes win to make it 94. The victory by Sir Patrick & Lady Hogan's home-bred 3YO filly Abidewithme (see above) on Friday made her the second Redoute's Choice filly to win the Ray Coupland Stakes in three years, emulating the feat of King's Rose who did likewise before winning the NZ Gr1 1000 Guineas and the 2011 New Zealand Filly of the Year title. The tally of Redoute's Choice's worldwide stakes-winners in the 2012/13 season now stands at six in three countries (Alzora, Albrecht & Dystopia in Australia; Packing OK in Hong Kong; Pure Elegance & Abidewithme in NZ).
