As Redoute’s Choice is embarking on his first stud season in the northern hemisphere, the son of Danehill reached a significant milestone in his native country when She’s Clean won the Listed Triscay Stakes in Sydney to become her sire’s 100th stakes winner.

Usually resident at Arrowfield Stud in the Hunter Valley, Redoute’s Choice joins his own sire plus Sir Tristram and his son Zabeel in an elite group of four Australasian stallions to sire 100 black-type winners. He is currently standing at the Aga Khan’s Normandy base Haras de Bonneval for his first shuttle season, where his elite book of mares for 2013 will include the unbeaten five-time Group 1 winner Zarkava.

Appropriately, She’s Clean was bred by Arrowfield Stud in partnership with John Leaver, and she also boasts French heritage despite her more immediate Australian roots. She is out of the End Sweep mare Feather Duster, whose dam Keltshaan is a half-sister to the grand-dam of French Classic winner Falco and to the dam of Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud winner Plumania, all of whom are descended from the great French mare Lady Berry, winner of the Prix Royal-Oak.

Redoute’s Choice also had a hand in the winner of one of Australia’s major two-year-old races of the season, the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes, which was run at Caulfield on Saturday. The winning filly Miracles Of Life – ridden by 29-year-old apprentice Lauren Stojakovic – is the first Group 1 winner for Redoute’s Choice’s son Not A Single Doubt, who also stands at Arrowfield.
