Winning debut for Moody’s Redoute’s Choice filly


Winning debut for Moody’s Redoute’s Choice filly

Sensibility is only one of the 200 3YO fillies are nominated for the $500,000 MRC Thousand Guineas G1, but she could not have done any more at Mornington today to encourage hopes that she will line up at Caulfield on 16 October.

The daughter of champion sire Redoute’s Choice powered home from a tricky midfield position to win her debut over 1227 metres by more than a length.

Trained by Peter Moody for his wife Sarah, Sensibility was a $260,000 purchase from the Widden Stud draft at the 2012 Inglis Australian Easter Sale. The filly was bred by Widden and Robert Anderson from the US-bred mare Fleeting Touch, purchased as a 2YO for $130,000 by Vin Cox from the 2006 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale. 

Fleeting Touch (by Touch Gold), an unraced half-sister to champion US 2YO colt Midshipman, is already the dam of Group 2 winner Running Tall and stakes-placed winner Ephemera. Her fourth foal is a yearling colt by Redoute’s Choice. 

Redoute’s Choice was Australia’s leading sire of 3YO stakeswinners last season with a tally of nine, including Australian Oaks G1 winner Royal Descent. Seventeen of his 23 Group 1 winners have won at that level as 3YOs.
