Redoute’s Choice warmly received at Tattersalls

Five lots from the first European crop of Redoute’s Choice sold for an average of 321,000 guineas (~$715,000) at the Book 1 session of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, which concluded on Thursday UK time.

That placed him among the Sale’s top 10 sires by average, and the 725,000 guineas paid by M.V. Magnier for his daughter out of Yummy Mummy was the 7th-highest price achieved by a filly.

Charlie Gordon-Watson signed for two Redoute’s Choice yearlings. His first purchase was Watership Down’s My Branch filly, a half-sister to Group 1 winner Tante Rose, at 400,000 guineas (~$890,000) and seven lots later he joined Al Shaqab Racing to buy Tally-Ho Stud’s colt from Nitya for 240,000 guineas (~$534,000).

Jamie McCalmont paid 135,000 guineas for the daughter of champion German 2YO filly Monami consigned by Gestut Etzean, and Stroud Coleman Bloodstock bought the colt from So Squally, a sister to Group 1 winner Shirocco, for 105,000 guineas.

Three-time Champion Sire of Australia, Redoute’s Choice stood the 2013 & 2014 northern hemisphere seasons at HH The Aga Khan’s Haras de Bonneval in France.  His first European-conceived 2YOs will race in 2016.
