Crossbow’s aim is true at Randwick

Sydney and Brisbane provided highlights of different kinds for champion sire Redoute’s Choice .

At Randwick his 3YO son Crossbow contributed a handy $42,000 to Redoute’s Choice’s 2010/11 prizemoney with an impressive win in class record time over 1800 metres. From Rainbow Bubbles, a stakes-winning sister to Group 1 winner El Mirada, Crossbow has now won three of his six starts from the Gai Waterhouse stable for his breeder Peter Carrick and partners.

At Eagle Farm, 3YO colt Shootoff gave the young Redoute’s Choice sire Duelled his first Group 1 winner when he prevailed in the $500,000 Queenland Derby over 2400 metres. Duelled is the second son of Redoute’s Choice to sire a Group 1 winner after Stratum, responsible for the 2010 Golden Slipper winner Crystal Lily.

Redoute’s Choice has had a tremendous 2010/11 season with a total of 17 stakeswinners worldwide, 13 of them within Australia where he is currently third on the General Sires’ list with prizemoney of $6.7 million.

Redoute’s Choice’s service fee for 2011 is $137,500 inc. GST.
