Wednesday 9 January 2013
Redoute’s Choice travelled safely from Australia and arrived in France on Wednesday 9th January. The two times Australian Champion sire is shuttling for the first time and he will be standing the Northern Hemisphere season at the Aga Khan’s French stud Haras de Bonneval.
Redoute’s Choice is due to cover a limited book of a hundred top class mares. The Aga Khan Studs will send a selection of fifteen elite broodmares (see the full list below), headed by the unbeaten Arc winner ZARKAVA. She will be joined by last year’s Group 1 winners SHARETA and Sagawara. Other notable Aga Khan mares include the young Group 1 winning mares Rosanara and Daryakana. The dams of Shalanaya and Vadawina have also been selected to visit the champion sire.
To date, Redoute’s Choice has sired 21 Group 1 winners, 97 Stakes winners and currently boasts exceptional lifetime statistics of 75.6% winners to runners and 11.5% Stakes winners to runners.
To visit Redoute’s Choice, as well as multiple Group 1 sire Sinndar and juvenile Group 1 winner Siyouni, please call the stud farm directly on +33 2 31 48 18 60 to make arrangements. The stallions will also be presented during an open day, to be held on Sunday 3rd February as part as the Route des Etalons operation.
