Redoute’s Choice & son shine at Eagle Farm


Redoute’s Choice & son shine at Eagle Farm

For every challenge that brilliant young sire Snitzel lays down, his champion sire Redoute’s Choice has a quick response.

So it proved again at Eagle Farm yesterday. Snitzel took his Australian season earnings beyond $6 million with a Group 2 quinella by Sizzling and Dances On Stars in the $350,000 BRC Queensland Guineas 1400m G2.

Two races later Redoute’s Choice posted his 20th individual stakeswinner for the season when Sheikh Mohammed’s 4YO home-bred colt Galah prevailed in the $175,000 BRC QTC Cup 1300m G2.

Sizzling, bred by John & Trish Muir’s Milburn Creek Thoroughbred Stud, fought hard to hold off Dances on Stars by a long neck and assert the class he also displayed in the T.J. Smith S. G1 and two other Group wins as a 2YO.

Sizzling has returned more than $1.2 million on the $260,000 that agent John Foote paid for him on behalf of David & Diane Devine and partners at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale. His dam Admirelle (by General Nediym) has a rising 2YO filly by Flying Spur and is once again in foal to Snitzel.

Sizzling, one of Snitzel’s 11 stakeswinners this season, is now the favourite for next Saturday’s $1.3 million BRC Stradbroke Handicap G1.

Galah’s last-stride victory in the QTC Cup was his second Group win and boosted his career prizemoney to $520,300. Trainer Peter Snowden indicated that the 4YO’s next start was likely to be in the 1400-metre Glasshouse Handicap LR at the Sunshine Coast on 29 June.
