It was the 5YO gelding’s sixth win and took his prizemoney beyond $437,000 for trainer Graeme Rogerson, who races him with his breeder Gerry Harvey, R.W. James & Mrs P.M. James, M.P. & Mrs H. Keegan, K.T. Nam, M.A. & Mrs J. Tilyard & the Echo Beach Bloodstock Syndicate.

Bid Spotter, an $850,000 Magic Millions graduate, from the Group One-winning 2YO Isolda (by Sir Tristram), will remain in Tasmania to contest the Launceston Cup 2400m G3 on 24 February. The extra 200 metres shouldn’t worry him: he has previously won the 2400-metre City Tattersalls Club Cup LR at Randwick and ran third in last month’s AJC Australia Day Cup LR over the same distance.

Redoute’s Choice’s nine individual stakeswinners this season have won a total of 14 Group & Listed Stakes races in Australia and New Zealand. He is currently third among Australian-based sires on the General Sires’ prizemoney list, and yesterday Sister Madly became his 70th lifetime stakeswinner.

Bellerive Stud will offer three colts and a filly by Redoute’s Choice at the 2011 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale.
