At Doomben in Brisbane, Arrowfield Stud's reigning Champion Australian Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a Group success when 6YO gelding Strawberry Boy (Redoute's Choice-Strawberry Girl, by Strawberry Road) scored by 2.5-lengths for trainer Chris Waller in the $125,000 Gr3 Lord Mayor's Cup (1600m) for 3YO+, over 5YO mare Lucky Lago (Encosta de Lago-Dizelle, by Zabeel) & 9YO UK-bred gelding I'm Imposing (Danehill Dancer-On Fair Stage, by Sadler's Wells). Strawberry Boy took his record to 8 wins (including the Listed Ladies Day Cup) & 8 placings (including the Gr2 Villiers Stakes, Gr3 Newmarket Handicap at Newcastle, Gr2 Moonga Stakes at Caulfield, Gr3 Colin Stephen Handicap & Gr3 Kingston Town Stakes in Sydney) from 23 starts for $557,450 earnings. Bred by John Singleton's Strawberry Hill Stud, Strawberry Boy was retained to race by his breeder after being passed in for $280,000 at the 2010 Magic Millions Yearling Sale on the Gold Coast.
