Seaside’s dam the 2YO Group 3 winner Living Spirit is descended from the imported Swettenham Stud mare River Dane, herself a dual Group winner in Europe and half-sister to Robert Sangster’s Australian Group 1 winner Pure of Heart.

River Dane’s daughters, the stakeswinner Idol Worship, Rossignol and Sisterhood have done fine work at stud, leaving a stakeswinner each, and several stakes-producing daughters. Recent stars from the family include Group-1-winning 2YO Choice Bro and Melbourne stakeswinner Immortality.

Seaside is the 5th winner from only 6 named foals by Redoute’s Choice out of mares by sons of champion US sire Storm Cat, a group headed by Australian Oaks G1 winner Absolutely.

Redoute’s Choice stands at a 2012 fee of $137,500 inc. GST.
