Redoute's Choice is the Champion Sire of Australia, 2009-10

Saturday, July 31, 2010

Arrowfield's Redoute's Choice is the Champion Sire of Australia for the second time with 2009/10 prizemoney of more than $9 million.

Redoute's Choice added two new winners to his season's record on the final day's racing for 2009-10, when three-year-old Sikka won handsomely at Rosehill, and four-year-old Stalingrad won in Darwin. Their efforts took Redoute's Choice's season stakes tally to $9,032,392 - $320,039 ahead of runner-up Encosta de Lago, who was represented by 50 more runners than Redoute's Choice.

The major earner for Redoute's Choice was the magnificent three-year-old filly Melito whose second Group One win, in the Qld Tatt's RC Winter S.

She started 14 times during the season, nine times at Group One level, for three wins (two G1), nine placings (five G1), and $1,314,700 prizemoney.
