The next Not A Single Doubt

Not A Single Doubt’s rocketing start to the 2019/20 season is a good reason to look around for the next young sire most likely to follow in his increasingly illustrious hoofprints.

Let’s start with Not A Single Doubt’s major selling points in the early years of his career:

  • Son of Redoute’s Choice – then a just-crowned Champion Sire, now a dominant sire of sires and among the world’s best stallions of the past 20 years.
  • A natural, early-running 2YO stakeswinner.
  • Outstanding damsire.
  • From a Group 1 and stallion-producing family.

It’s easy to identify the Australian-based sons of Redoute’s Choice that have gone to stud in 2017, 2018 and 2019 because there are only five of them. And only two match the Not A Single Doubt template.

One is Arrowfield’s five-time Group 1 winner The Autumn Sun, last night announced as Australia’s Champion 3YO Colt of 2018/19 and fully booked for his first season at $77,000 inc. GST.

A few more steps along the Arrowfield stallion barn are all it takes to find the other one – Pariah, standing at $22,000 inc. GST:

  • By Redoute’s Choice.
  • A Group 3 winner on debut as a January 2YO and 2nd in the Blue Diamond G1.
  • Out of a mare by Champion Sire and influential broodmare sire Hussonet.
  • A three-quarter brother to Group 1 winner Melito, from the family of  leading sire Zeditave.

Like The Autumn Sun, Pariah was a much-admired $700,000 yearling, and he’s receiving strong support from the James Harron-managed syndicate that raced him. That will be supplemented come yearling sale-time by the natural interest of his trainers Peter & Paul Snowden in Pariah’s progeny.

If any more persuasion is needed, a review of Pariah’s first foals will do the trick. They are exactly what Australian breeders – and buyers – expect a grand-looking, easy-moving, precocious young sire from the Danehill sire-line to leave. It’s not hard to see them making an impact early in the 2021/22 season, in time to create a healthy demand for Pariah’s second-crop yearlings!

It’s not too late to breed to Pariah this Spring and he is getting almost all his mares in foal at first service – just call Jon, Sally, Peter, Alison or Adam (contact details here) to make a booking.
