Fact of the Week: 10 of the Very Best


Redoute's Choice | Arrowfield Stud


With his runners now into their 14th season on the track, Redoute's Choice (Aus) (Danehill) is still maintaining a black-type winner strike rate (12%) by far and away better than any other active stallion in Australia and New Zealand. It really does put in perspective the achievements of his own great sire Danehill (Danzig), who sired 18% black-type winners to runners. The Danehill line is, predictably, still very well represented with Exceed And Excel (Aus) (Danehill) (9.5%) and Fastnet Rock (Aus) (Danehill) (8.6%) still going strong, while current leading sire in Australia, Snitzel (Aus) (by Redoute's Choice) looks set to carry on the line's excellent work. Only in their fourth season, I Am Invincible (Aus) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) and Tavistock (NZ) (Montjeu {Ire}) are shaping up as the next generation of super sires.
