Redoute’s Choice and his son Snitzel have three fine chances of extending the record of Arrowfield stallions in Saturday’s $2 million BMW Magic Millions 2YO Classic (R) LR.

Today’s barrier draw put the Redoute’s Choice filly No Looking Back and Snitzel’s sons Sizzling & Amorino in gates 4, 6 and eight.

They are the best backed runners on the TAB Sportbet Fixed Odds behind the favourite Driefontein who will start from barrier 3 and is paying $3.20 to win. Sizzling is paying $3.80, Amorino $7.00 and No Looking Back $14.

Past and current Arrowfield stallions have produced five Magic Millions winners:

2011 – KARUTA QUEEN ( Not A Single Doubt -Card Queen by Final Card)
Bred by Stuart Ramsey

2006 – MIRROR MIRROR (Dehere-Fair Vanity by Rustic Amber)
Bred by Ged & Jan Nolan

2005 – BRADBURY’S LUCK (Redoute’s Choice-Skating by At Talaq)
Bred by Segenhoe Stud

2004 – DANCE HERO (Danzero-Gypsy Dancer by Dance Floor)
Bred by Tony, Steve & Carine Akkari

1989 (Fillies) – MALIBU MAGIC (Prego-Jeckale by Solitary Hail)
Bred by W. Dougherty

Snitzel, like Not A Single Doubt, was a Magic Millions placegetter and his two runners give him a strong hand in the 2012 renewal, following the third placing by his daughter Schiffer last year.

Her trainer Gerald Ryan also prepares Arrowfield graduate Amorino, a professional winner of both his starts in Sydney.

Sizzling, bred by John & Trish Muir’s Milburn Creek Stud, comes from the stable of Queensland trainer Kelso Wood and boasts a win and two second placings from his three starts.

No Looking Back, bred by Strawberry Hill Stud from the 2006 Magic Millions Classic winner Mirror Mirror, won her only start at Warwick Farm in November and is prepared by Gai Waterhouse.
