Monday, 19th February 2007

In New Zealand, current Australian champion Arrowfield Stud sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a group success when Australian-bred daughter Redoute's Dancer (Redoute's Choice-Condescendance, by El Gran Senor) scored a half-length victory against the males in the NZ$100,000 Gr2 Mercedes Championship Stakes (2100m) for 3YOs at Ellerslie in Auckland. Redoute's Dancer (ridden by Vinny Colgan for Sydney trainer Tim Martin) defeated the geldings Benedict (O'Reilly-Fanny Black, by Chem) & Stolen Thunder (Thunder Gulch-Just Love Me, by Spectacular Love). Redoute's Dancer (a $230,000 yearling at the 2005 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) took her record to 3 wins & 2 runner-ups from 6 starts & is now aiming at the NZ$700,000 Gr1 NZ Derby at Ellerslie on March 3.
