At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Arrowfield Stud's multiple Champion Australian Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a black-type success when 6YO Australian-bred mare Zestful (Redoute's Choice-Zest, by Marauding) claimed her first win since February with a narrow victory in the $125,000 Listed Razor Sharp Handicap (1200m) for 3YO+, defeating I Thought So & Kuro. This was the second stakes victory for Zestful who improved her record to 6 wins (including the Gr3 Triscay Stakes) and 4 placings (including the Gr3 ATC Nivison Stakes & Listed GCTC Silk Stocking Handicap) from 20 starts for $404,450 in earnings. Zestful was a $90,000 purchase at the 2013 Magic Millions National Yearling Sale from the draft of Bellerive Stud.
