At Riccarton Park in New Zealand, Arrowfield Stud's deceased, multiple Champion Australian Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a posthumous Gr1 success when talented 3YO filly Loire (Redoute's Choice-Syrah, by  Traditionally) graduated quickly to the top level to take-out the 47th running of the prestigious $300,000 Gr1 Gavelhouse.com NZ 1000 Guineas (1600m). In what was a compact finale, Loire defied Jennifer Eccles by 0.4 length with Travelling Light only 0.5 length further abreast. The home-bred filly took her record to 2 wins and 2 placings (including the Listed El Roca - Sir Colin Meads Trophy & Gr3 Hawke's Bay Breeders Gold Trail Stakes) from 6 starts for $193,250 in earnings. Bred by Trelawney Thoroughbred Ltd, Loire is out of a half-sister to Gr1 Queensland Oaks winning filly Vouvray.
