Redoute's Choice Adds South Africa Gr3
At Kenilworth in South Africa, Arrowfield Stud's multiple Champion Australian Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a Group success when 3YO Australian-bred colt Table Bay (Redoute's Choice-Gabriella, by Cape Cross) scored an emphatic 5 length win for trainer Joey Ramsden in the Gr3 Cape Classic (1400m) for 3YO colts & geldings, over fellow 3YO colts Elevated (Elusive Fort-Levitate, by Spaceship) & Edict Of Nantes (Count Dubois-Pagan Dance, by Jet Master). Carrying the familiar black, green and yellow starred silks of owners Markus & Ingrid Jooste, Table Bay was a $120,000 purchase by Mayfair Speculators at the 2015 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Henley Park (NZ). Table Bay's dam is the unraced Cape Cross mare Gabriella, a half-sister to the inaugural Global Sprint Challenge winner Cape Of Good Hope (Inchinor), winner of the Gr1 Golden Jubilee Stakes at Ascot and the Gr1 Australia Stakes at Moonee Valley. Table Bay advanced his record to 4 wins from 6 starts.
