Arrowfield Stud’s champion sire Redoute’s Choice (Danehill – Shantha’s Choice, by Canny Lad) has genuine winning chances in three of the four Group 1 race on Randwick’s big Epsom Handicap card.
Redoute’s Choice has made a lightning start to the 2011-12 season. The stallion has produced 47 winners of 53 races in the first two months of the new term, including four Group 2 victors and a winner at Group 3 level.
Rekindled Alliance (Redoute’s Choice – Rekindled Affair, by Rainbow Quest) and Godspeed (Redoute’s Choice – Regrowth, by Unbridled’s Song) will represent the sire in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m). King’s Rose (Redoute’s Choice – Nureyev’s Girl, by Nureyev) is the Arrowfield resident’s main hope in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m).
The David Payne-trained Florentina (Redoute’s Choice – Celebria, by Peintre Celebre) will attempt to provide the stallion a win in the Group 1 Flight Stakes.
Redoute’s Choice does not have a representative in the Group 1 Metropolitan (2400m) but the Starcraft (Soviet Star – Flying Floozie, by Pompeii Court) mare Crafty Irna (Starcraft – Zirna, by Deputy Governor) will represent Arrowfield Stud sires in the $400,000 event.
